Typical visually-oriented sightseeing sites. If a friend with a T1 link
asks you what the Web is all about, point her to one of these links...
(03.03.95) A classic: The Vatican Exhibit.
(04.03.95) Chief amongst the names of american cities i find funny
is Memphis. That this very Memphis has an Institite of Egyptian Art and
Archaeology is fitting. They have put some of their collection
on-line. The usual promo-stuff (i guess they digitized an exhibit catalogue
and re-typed the text parts).
(Now, if they could also put a few pages on sick design on-line...)
and the (entirely different) obligatory Louvre.
(05.03.95) Not much to be seen yet, but still a Good Idea™: one of the greatest tourist
attractions of the U.S. of A. is the rampant violence that transcends its
society and expresses itself most lucidly in its Serial Killers.
(04.04.95) An Art server
down in Switzerland. Has a rather large collection of Giger pics.
(I am using his "Biomechanical Landscape" as a background screenshot. Many
of his paintings look good when grayscaled or even b/w dithered.)
(21.07.95: still exists.)
(08.04.95) Olin Shivers spent two years in Hong Kong and has written
a few notes on
living there. Be sure to read about his evening in a Karaoke bar.
(19.06.95) Nicolas Pioch's WebMuseum (What's New?)
Artslink Artist in Residence Program. Interesting: the "virtual
gallery" approach. While somewhat wasteful, the "feeling" of it is quite
different from that of an ordinary list-of-thumbnails WWW gallery.
