for a site-specific place. "Replicating architecture"

at: http://feeds.feedburner.com/rhizome-art) can influence
and reshape an architecture placed in a real urban environment.
In fact, through the patch 'RSS Downloader' in Quartz Composer,
I can manage the rss feeds received from a web site and
convert them into a sort of variable texture that I've constructed
and shaped as a dna structure. It is made by aggregated
lines connected to a several other patches that determine:
phases, amplitudes, light environment, colors, xyz rotations,
As the DNA configuration is vertical, I've selected a tower
or an obelisk for the projection. In this illusory dimension,
infinite lines generating emptiness and distances are "attracted"
and skimmed one with the others, fading. Thanks to the Net-Art
news, the architecture becomes an essential structure that
