***Advertisement for Myself***


I wanted to gather together URLs for purchase etc. of my work available 
online. This is probably incomplete, but for those who are interested, it 
is probably useful. Note that Printed Matter carries a number of things.
I definitely recommend the books - VEL, The Wayward, Sophia, .echo. There 
are days I wish I was a store. Those are the days I could still wish.

by Alan Sondheim
Based on Virtual Environment work, an intense selection of recent texts
on motion capture, avatars, online experience, and language. A must!

by Alan Sondheim
Alan Sondheim's new ebook, .echo, takes you on a fascinating journey with 
Nikuko Meat-Girl into the language of avatars, transliterate lovemaking 
and virtual subjectivity. While interacting with Sondheim's ebook of 
mystical eroticism, the reader will lose themselves in a net.fiction 
charged with sex, obsession, codework and real bodies pushed to the limit. 
A provocative theory-world presented in the guise of experimental 
narrative, .echo takes the reader on a high-speed, yet zen-like trip 
through a hallucinatory landscape that one can imagine used to be the 
world. There's never been anything like this book as it confounds the 
relationship between America and Japan, prosthetics and aesthetics, 
visible words and invisible intelligences. Enter at your own risk!

Sondheim, Alan; Sophia, ISBN 1 84254 583 3; published July 2004, 
reprinted November 2004
One of the author's rare texts of philosophy, an extended meditation on 
world and worlding, written with a unique style and structure. Perhaps the 
best guide to reality ever written!

The Wayward
Salt Books
The Wayward is an exploration into virtual life and theory. It uses tools 
from codework to traditional genre; much of its work is the result of 
programming intended to create systems of circulating texts. Think of The 
Wayward as a poetics of the imaginary, stumbling over the grounds of the 
real - constantly questioning linguistic referents and 'meaning in 
general.' The work is a ground-breaking exploration of the roots and 
structures of online and offline life, in which language simultaneously 
explodes and implodes. Conversations among 'emanents' dominate 
inconceivable landscapes; sexualities are constructed and deconstructed. 
There's not another work like it.

Being on Line is an historic exploration of the theory and practice of 
virtual identity as well as its effects. Unlike many recent books on the 
Internet, it focuses both on the promises of the technology and the actual 
content being developed by users of this form of exchange. Among the 
thirty-two authors are Angela Hunter, Ellen Zweig, and Nesta Stubbs; net 
feminist Doctress Neutopia; anthropologist Roger Bartra; and theorists 
Friedrich Kittler, Slavoj Zizek, Mark Poster and Gregory Ulmer. Artists 
include Mike Metz, Alice Aycock, Peter Halley.

Alan Sondheim
Hollywood (1981) 16mm, b&w, sound, 70 min. rental price: 140.00
The triangulation of three women and a man, set against the 
psychogeographical landscape of Los Angeles-Hollywood in particular. With 
Jocelyne Doray and Laura Parker. This film was designed as an $800 
"feature" complete with characters. Its theoretical basis is from Luce 
Iragaray and others concerned with the phenomenology of feminine space.
... Los Angeles appears laid out like the flesh of a postmodern body. 
Characters speak and intermix their own and other' lines, and ruptured 
desire flows everywhere through the work. The film is also a strange 
homage to Los Angeles, with shots ranging from Laurel Canyon to the 
Central Market, from Pasadena through Hollywood...The landscape is always 
vaguely catastrophic, inscribing the characters in terms of one another, 
but -- as in a great deal more recent work -- identity is always fluid.
