Postcards From My Desktop: an attempt at really simple syndication, was an online performance using two simultaneous streams. As a part of the Double Bind series, a project curated by Annie Abrahams for Panoplie.org, the work was originally broadcast live on December 15, 2008.
With two streams on a single screen, the performance mixed RSS, real-time transcription and pre-written material. The video was broadcast at one frame per second and subject to the delay of the stream. There was also an open chat during the performance. As the RSS were simplified and re-transcribed, those texts were fed into the chat creating a kind of conspiratorial loop between performer and audience. The chat has been archived here.
