Snailmen

Possibilities of Multilateral Communication

From Slate:

"In Mary Mattingly's meticulously imagined future, civilization has shattered and nomadic "navigators" roam the landscape in "wearable homes" that look like khaki chadors designed by Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo. Her photographs in the ICP show are digitally stitched-together composite images of futuristic landscapes; they look like kitschy surrealism, but her Web site, presented on a monitor in the exhibition, offers a fuller sense of her intriguing technophilic vision."

Some of them are just strange, but some of them are also quite beautiful (albeit in a very odd fashion). They remind me of the short-lived television series Earth 2:

Did you know you can get e2 on DVD? I have it. :) How've you been? Any new game design stuff?

Yeah I had forgotten about Earth 2 until I saw it at your house in March... since then I have given some thought to renting it, but haven't gotten around to it.

Other stuff forthcoming (perhaps an email is in order...)
