INTERNET-SURFING, DISH-WASHING DOMESTIC ACTIVITY HAS NO BORDERS...
SOME MAY NOT AGREE THOUGH. HOW ABOUT AN OPEN DISCUSSION
ADDICTION AND THE PRESERVATION OF FAMILY LIFE-AS-WE-KNOW-IT.
REAL LIFE HUMAN INTERACTION, TALK, CARE, DEPTH OF EXPRESSION...
SIMPLICITY OF THOUGHT...
DON'T GET ME WRONG (NOT THAT IT WOULD MATTER SO MUCH) ,
I LIKE THE WEB,
BUT ALL GOOD THINGS HAVE A POTENTIAL DOWNSIDE (TRUISM).
DESIRE TO TALK ?

Ben Kinmont answers:
i'm not sure i understand you correctly, however, i don't believe
the web to be an answer to domestic issues, if that's what you
mean. at this point i'm exploring it as a tool, a means for
collaboration and distribution. more as a way to make an offer
available to those on the web, to see if they are interested in
participation in something a bit unusual, something which some-
how documents our necessary lives of maintenance, and whether or
not that can be thought of as art.
