Comment The Unbearable Lightness of ASCII (Score 1) 141

simple ascii graphics always seem to convey a sense of isolation when presented in situations like this, not necessarily aloneness but the feeling of a tenuous mediated glimpse into something far away and mysterious, or at least it does to me, maybe because of my associations with mainframe terminals and command lines. So I think this piece really "works", with combination of salvaged computer, ascii graphics, and abandoned places. another somewhat similar piece that I also enjoyed is ben rubin's Listening Post more polished but still with a eerieness that is hard to explain. might be of interest to you if you liked this one.
