Mt. Hekla is a live volcano in the South of Iceland (WikiPedia). Recently a live webcam was set up at the Burfellsvirkjun power plant with a view of Hekla. What these codes produce is a live "painting" of the mountain that regenerates itself in real time. Mt. Hekla has been rendered by many of Iceland's most prominent artists as can be seen in the documentation for the 2001 exhibition Flogið yfir Heklu (En. Flying over Hekla) at the Kjarvalsstadir museum in Reykjavik.

Turbulence Commission: "FUJI spaces and other places" by Nurit Bar-Shai
Appropriating, processing, and interweaving several existing webcam feeds of Mount Fuji, "FUJI" is a durational piece for four seasons. "FUJI" examinesthe authenticity of networked, spatiotemporal experiences of distant nature, sacred sites, and sacred icons. The overwhelming immediacy and delirious variety of live broadcasts available via the Internet, as well as the current incitement to communicate with distant but real subjects alter our experience of space which is invariably mediated through images. In "FUJI",the gap between the real place and its representation no longer exists. "FUJI" is a voyage across deep time, experienced minute by minute, day by day -- a longing for a place that could never be, yet, evidently, always is.

Browser Pong is a traditional Pong game played not in a browser window, but with browser windows.
The typical browsing experience is conducted through a single application window. This is indeed a useful, practical thing. Browser Pong instead exists between a collection of windows. During play the negative space between windows is transformed into a playing field?the abstracted tennis court of Pong. The idea of thinking inside or outside some "box" is of course a dead and beaten horse. Browser Pong attempts to think with the boxes. The audio content was created by sound artist and musician Dominic Matar of Nine Cats Music specifically for this piece.
Got Your Internet Explorer Right Here. “An immersive, randomly generated, psychedelic animation backed by a collage of audio loops designed to lovingly fry your eyes and ears.”
The GRAMMATRON project is a "public domain narrative environment" developed by virtual artist Mark Amerika in conjunction with the Brown University Graduate Creative Writing Program and the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Graphics and Visualization Center as well as with the support of many individuals without whom none of this would be possible.
"More-Inc. is an artistic simulation of lifestyle in a capitalist culture. The project is dedicated to employee number 12995 and to his frustrations and angst. Meyer analyses, with irony, the human being's role in a world dominated by corporations and the New Economy. The user is invited to participate in the daily routine of a faceless employee and to interact with the endless meetings, paper pushing, form filing, homogeneity, subversion, and anxiety that are typical in the corporate work world. Later, the user's interaction travels beyond the job to employee 12995's domestic life and dreamy subconscious leading to an experiential crescendo realized in breakdown, dissimulation, and resurrection."
