Randy Adams (aka runran) – digital artist

Those who remember the trAce Online Writing Community (1995-2005) won’t have forgotten our fearless editor-at-large Randy Adams (aka runran). He was an indispensable part of the team, and an accomplished digital artist in his own right.

Randy died in 2014, way too soon, and is missed by many.  He was a man of contradictions – tough, spirited, and straight-talking, but endlessly kind, supportive, clever, and supremely talented. He always had time to help upcoming artists in the early years when the very notion of digital art and literature were too new to be taken seriously. We miss him a great deal.

His good friend and former colleague at trAce, the digital designer Chris Joseph, has recreated Randy’s blog  at https://remixworx.com/runran/site/ . The collection includes several of his early digital works, in addition to his writing, audio work and photographs. The bulk of Randy’s digital work is still available on the remixworx site he founded at https://remixworx.com/?cat=14 . Please visit and enjoy this fascinating collection.

Indian edition of ‘Technobiophilia: Nature and Cyberspace’

Bloomsbury are working on an Indian edition of ‘Technobiophilia’. No publication date as yet.

This is an exciting prospect! I’m looking forward to hearing what Indian readers think of my research and I’m sure they’ll bring some interesting new cultural perspectives to the relationship between nature and technology. I look forward to their feedback and thoughts.
