the “aleph null 3.0” project, by jim andrews

Here are some different views into a project called Aleph Null 3.0. This is an interactive, generative project I wrote in JavaScript/HTML/CSS. There are 21 participating artists, including Jim Leftwich. The different URLs below open up the app to view work by the different artists. There’s also an essay with videos about the project at

You can see Jim’s bio at
and the slideshow of 100 images of his used in Aleph Null at

I wrote an earlier graphic synthesizer called dbCinema in Director/Lingo. I used some of Jim’s work in it here:

the ecstatic nerve
“From one perspective, a programme for a radicalized practice of Thought; from another perspective, a fractured history of certain 19th and 20th Century avant-gardes; from yet another perspective, an experiment in utopian historiography.”
“This is the central site for a long-term project to research, examine, and respond to the radical collective of writers, theorists, architects, and visual artists who operated in Paris between 1829 and 1835 under the names of the Jeunes France & the Bouzingo, and through them to build a critical understanding of French Romanticist subculture through the historical lens of a continuing politically vigilant Anglophone avant-garde.”
