Every night at midnight in my local time-zone, a new headline is posted on the website – generic words of wisdom and advice that have been culled from a daily horoscope allegedly created in response to the date and time of my birth. Black text on a white background: each entry creates an intimate encounter with a sentence so general that it becomes endlessly relatable, holding potential meaning for every reader to identify. As the proverbs and guidelines offered by Recalculating Route change daily, there is no access to the previous sentences and no opportunity to take a glance at future ones. The title of the work emerges from the vocabulary of GPS device when calculating the route to a given destination.
Recalculating Route is the first part of the online trilogy, No Time for Nostalgia [dot] Now.
