ASCII (Archeospiritist Study and Consortion Initiative, Illinois) is an event where participants are entrusted to uphold the following 3 core specifications:
1. An edition of artifacts shall be created, to be distributed freely.
2. Editions must involve recorded audio.
3. Attire shall always be elegant.
In addition, participants are entreated to observe a prompt (in lieu of an articulated curatorial theme) from Caroline Picard, which is a writing inspired by Marion Laval-Jeantet’s “May the Horse Live in Me” (http://www.archeospiritist.com/docs/carolinePicard__ascii3-Prompt.pdf) as well as her video selection (http://youtu.be/yx_E4DUWXbE).
Furthermore, recommended specifications are made available to the participants, as well as participant-sourced specification extensions. Information at http://www.archeospiritist.com.
Event guests are not subject to specifications nor sanctions, but elegant apparel is always enjoyed by all.
ASCII is a specification platform designed to elevate our personal, mundane rituals of audio data trafficking to a dedicated craft and an etiquette.
