Meet the Curator: 888ism.e!

The AOMC is thrilled to welcome 888ism.e as our newest curator of the ETLE Universe888ism.e joins us as the curator of the Universe’s Pornography work.

888ism.e aims to illuminate areas of potential connection among beings (practical) and to interrogate the sham notion that the universe is anything but continuous matter and anti-matter (theoretical).  By seeking telescopically the widest lens/most distant viewpoint as a way to experience the range of perspectives all the way from cosmos to micro-views/extreme close-ups, 888ism.e desires a viable framework for eroticism that nourishes power, agency and possibility. 

888ism.e, Curator of Pornography, has lived on this planet for over 5 decades, accruing knowledge at a snail’s pace but somehow putting things together enough along the way to survive, thrive and get paid.

Formal & informal fields of study have included medicine (various forms), anatomy & physiology, medical anomalies (age 1 to present), dance (age 3 to present), visual art (age 4 to present), english language (age 5 to present), pornography and mathematics (age 6 to present),   

888sim.e is a pseudonym, in play here for the purposes of liberation, taking no prisoners, pulling no punches, cultivating reliable space for imagining, and fun.  As curator of pornography, 888ism.e envisions a reclaiming of power by interrogating embedded mechanisms of capitalism in our erotic supply system. If our senses constitute our agency, what stops us from enacting the most realized visions we possess?

We couldn’t be more excited to have 888ism.e on board, and are grateful for their support! More announcements about the Pornography work of the Universe coming soon!

"To grow up as a “girl” is to be nearly fatally spoiled, deformed, confused, and terrified; to be responded to with falsities, to be reacted to as nothing or as a thing—and nearly to become that thing."

Yay, Jacky!  Congrats on your TED talk around “Snow Fall”!


Recently, the New York Times released Snow Fall, an extraordinary interactive experience that was heralded by many as a milestone in interactive narrative. The experience was enhanced by extra media, as had many projects before. But unlike previous projects the blending was seamless and the whole experience felt completely natural. TED invited the designer, Jacky Myint, to talk about her process.
Myint never considered herself a storyteller, she avoided people’s attention. But that is exactly what she wants for her designs. “I want the user’s full attention. I want their focus in time… I want them to have a moment of wonder. I like to think of stories as living organisms jostling for people’s attention. As a designer I ask myself how do I help this story tell itself?”

“Beholder” by Sarah Grey take a brief look at day to day life in a world where augmented reality is the norm:

She can’t read my traits, though. I am a private person; I do not relish the nagging chime of new comments added to my cloud. I pay a generous sum to a restriction service…

Cypherpunks

If, in 1995, some cypherpunks had published a book about the upcoming “postmodern surveillance dystopia,” most commentators would have shrugged it off as just a wee bit paranoid and ushered them into the Philip K. Dick Reading Room. Now, it is more likely that people will shrug and say, “that ship has already sailed.”
