You Have to Die to Be Reborn

I'm excited to share my new project with you. It is called The Electric Mainline, because today information is a form of addiction. The purpose of EM is not detox or rehab from this addiction, but learning how to address and live with it. EM is a kind of news filter. presents information you can get anywhere on the web - the latest news stories, those stimulating bursts of data. Information on the web is largely presented pre-understood, pre-digested and the reader must do very little except lie back and receive it. On EM this information is presented according to an artistic impulse, one driven towards uncovering the strange, surreal, sci-fi undercurrents in the events of the day.

In other words, imagine if you read Google news, but it was edited by David Cronenberg.

EM is always on."
