I didn’t recognize my doppleganger
On the road to Samarra
Until I saw John the Doorman,
Heard the drunk, singing down the street
“Let me come home!”
B shared with me (ok with everyone she knows on the facing book) a great article about software artist John F. Simon Jr.’s creative process. We are fortunate to know him via mutual friends in New Orleans and he contributed an edition of his seminal Every Icon to episode eleven of our 1994-1998 era webzine*, Enterzone.
In the ensuing Facebook thread, we noticed that the original version of the artwork requires a Java plugin that modern browsers don’t love, so Simon pointed us to the now open source version of the piece and I updated the Enterzone page today.
It felt good!
Enterzone deserves more love.
More on that later.
* or, as we preferred to call it, back in the day, “hyper web text media zine art”
