/letters

Inspired by letters with Marta, this is a place to post letters to friends. Simple. Oldschool. Almost. Probably mostly letters from me "to" friends, but friends are also welcome to write letters here.

Dear Rhiannon,

Thank you for the wonderful invitation to participate in Philosophy in the Bedroom with Sheree Rose, Rhiannon Aarons and Martin O'Brien. What an amazing and exciting opportunity. Who could miss this!?

O/K, here is my proposal:

Philosophical Transmissions: Corporeal Space meets Cyberspace

1. Time

Window of time you would be able to attend between 9pm Saturday, September 3rd and 9pm Sunday, September 4th, 2016

How about 10-11 am PDT, Sunday 4 September '16.

2. Description

A description in 500 words or less of what you would like to do.

In your message to me you offered that I might eat Burger King's new Mac 'n Cheetos with you all. In your call for proposals you further offered that a possible proposal might include, "have Rhiannon cast a spell for you." I would like to do both.

I remember the day my aunt & uncle moved out of the home they'd raised their 6 kids in. All the peeps my age were crammed into Louie & David's old bedroom where their bunk beds still sat. At some point David started talking about out of body experiences.

What about having a new media out of body experience where we sit in bed with laptops connected to a virtual world and your avatar casts a spell on virtual Mac 'n Cheetos?

We could use a projector to cast the virtual world onto one of the gallery walls so that F2F attendees could partake of avatar space, and we could also stream video onto a virtual world wall so that avatars could partake of meatspace. A projector, or a large monitor with Apple TV or Google Chromecast would be great.

3. Patronage

Your committed level of patronage. What could/would you pay for this opportunity, if selected? No one will be excluded for lack of funds, and exceptionally interesting proposals will qualify for a scholarship.

As you might be aware, in the future, the most common unit of funds will likely be the Bitcoin Satoshi. 1 Satoshi = 0.00000001 ฿. While some people do transact in these units today, I find these transactions not quite ubiquitous at the current moment.

For the time being I prefer the monetary unit of the Mac 'n Cheetos. The current exchange rate is US$2.49 = 1 Mac 'n Cheetos. I am willing to pledge 10 Mac 'n Cheetos.

4. Who am I?

Your name and contact information.

My name is Glenn. My contact information is here

Thank You!

Thanks Rhiannon! Thanks so much for this opportunity to think about a collaborative performance in honor of Sheree's 75th birthday!
