These tales and videos mentioned in Resonance FM show “The News Agents”

 
This is a fun and intelligent interview (containing the word “labradoodle”, which is always a bonus) by Jude Cowan Montague with Dan Holloway, on Jude’s Resonance FM show “The News Agents”.

It’s warming that the voice of Dan is to be heard in the landscape, championing artistic achievement whose richness sets out with passion to change the world and people’s lives—and with compassionate mischief applying the label “consensus art” to what would simply pretend to have such a mission.

He also kindly gave these tales of mine here a shout-out during the interview, at timecode 48’05”-48’56”:

The Imagination Thief in “Books and Films” article in indieberlin

 
The Imagination Thief has appeared, in cool company, in the article “Books and Films” by Polly Trope in indieberlin, about publications whose words are mixed with film in one way or another:

The novel’s text remains self-sufficient, standing fully alone in its dead-tree paperback format. But as a close echo and instantiation of many central events in the story itself (involving lenses, film, broadcast, mirrors, iconography, self-images and multiple self-identities), the novel’s ebook format also includes optional audio-visual elements alongside the text. The four different kinds of audio-visual content living inside the ebook are:

(1) at the start of each of the novel’s 120 mini-chapters, one single hyperlink to that particular mini-chapter’s Video-Book version (which also resides here online, in the second main menu above, at I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX or X);

(2) at the start of each mini-chapter, a second single hyperlink, to that particular mini-chapter’s Audio-Book version (which also resides here online);

(3) spaced throughout the novel, 11 single hyperlinks to its 11 short Films (which also reside here online); and

(4) in each mini-chapter a couple of embedded stills from those 11 Films (taken from here online).

As Polly shows, however, this is only one way in which text and pixels can dance together: the permutations of their dance will only increase, as bandwidths grow and virtual reality shimmers ever closer down the cyber-pipe towards us all.
