My interests and tastes tend to run toward: art as experience, participatory art, performativity, interactivity, video art, plain old low-tech drawing, speech and action (thanks Arendt, Butler, and Habermas), open source, copyright and issues of fair use, appropriation, psychogeography, relational aesthetics, the internet as an alternative medium, programming, critical and cultural theory, and a lot of other things which can lead a person to use a lot of art-jargon.
