Mark Hansen and Ben Rubin’s Listening Post won the Ars Electronica prize and was described to me in email as one of the most beautiful works of electronic literature ever. It’s found literature really: bits and pieces from chat rooms and discussions that start with the words “I am” or “I like” or “I love” are displayed glowingly across a space as they’re read aloud by a single computerised voice (male, British accent). As more and more phrases tick in the words build up against the music as a calm ocean of voices. Or was that just because the second video had loaded in a browser window I wasn’t watching and so its sounds mixed with the one I was watching? You see, I’ve not seen Listening Post, I’ve only watched the videos, which are indeed rather beautiful.
