AlphaAlpha, an animated netbook of letters
I am glad to say that it is ready at: http://arteonline.arq.br/a/ .
The concept of this netbook is the proper “history of writing, which is, in a way, the history of the human race, since in it are bound up, severally and together, the development of thought, of expression, of art, of intercommunication, and of mechanical invention.”
“AlphaAlpha” is composed of 365 instances of the letter “A” plus one more for the leap year. The letters are collected in groups of about ten. “AlphaAlpha” is a collaborative work and includes participants ? artists & poets ? from several places around the world. “AlphaAlpha” is a good example of the possibilities of net art.
