Cory Arcangel (born 1978) is an American artist whose work explores the relationship between technology and culture. His work is in New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian, and the Tate. A classical guitar player and coder, he has a Web site that automatically updates every time someone tweets the phrase 'follow my other Twitter', and the blog, Sorry I Haven't Posted, that re-posts other people's apologies for not blogging.
Man. I wish I'd come up with that idea. #amwriting * Engadget * For some, Twitter is both a distraction and a medium for a peculiar type of written soliloquy. It's the confluence of those two streams that makes artist Cory Arcangel's new book, Working on my Novel, particularly poignant * The Verge * The tweets were found by searching Twitter for the phrase "working on my novel," and originally compiled at Arcangel's twitter account, @wrknonmynovel. Seriously meta. And seriously funny-sad * * Can't wait to finish this : ) so can work on my #novel -- Mark Sinclair * Creative Review * Arcangel's work regularly uses appropriation, whether it's hacking video games, excavating Andy Warhol old computer console illustrations or creating hi-tech art inspired by Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone". Working On My Novel sticks to those themes of endless recycling, transferring one form of media to create another - and as always, it's pretty funny * Dazed and Confused * It is hard to imagine a book more of its time than Working on My Novel... Arcangel has reflected something poignant about this collective yearning for creative individuation, about how technology seems to facilitate self-expression while effecting a strange obliteration of the individual-a symbolic compression of the self into the repository of the personal brand... The playful suggestion here seems to be that Working on My Novel is itself actually a novel * New Yorker * An epically brilliant work by a great American artist and author -- Jonah Peretti, co-founder of Buzzfeed
