The Cyber Scene in Dallas ~ By Eric Olsson

An exhibit entitled "Digital Code/Cultural Patterns: Digital Photography, CD-ROM and Web Art at the End of the Millennium" continued this week in the Visual Arts Building at the University of Texas at Dallas. A large portion can be visited online (

"Digital Code" features about 20 works by 5 artists from Texas and another 6 from around the country. Highlights from the online version include Gregory P. Garvey's "Genderbender" (, an interactive sex-role quiz, and Victoria Vesna's "Bodies Incorporated" (, a nifty VRML-based alter-ego construction set.

My favorite work is Piotr Szyhalski's "Ding an sich: The Canon Series" (, a twelve-part response to Immanuel Kant's "Critique of Pure Reason" Shockwave! "Digital Code" continues through April 24th.

…. And in Austin, TX
Jon Lebkowsky, Interactive Community Director, hosted the first Café Virtuale on Sunday, April 11. A few folks came to talk, hang out and talk about the new media scene in Austin and elsewhere.
