"Psychedelic Pie" and "The Last Collaboration"
"Psychedelic Pie" is a psychedelic video with a psychedelic sound-track, created from materials found on the Web. You can see the video on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jS4Wpx5QKXc, or on my site at http://edwardpicot.com/psychedelicpie.mov.

Also new: my review of "The Last Collaboration" by Martha Deed and Millie Niss. The review can be seen on the Furtherfield site at http://www.furtherfield.org/features/articles/last-collaboration, and the book itself can be seen at http://www.furtherfield.org/friendsofspork/lastcollaboration.html. Millie Niss was a writer and new media artist who died in November 2010. Martha Deed is a poet and psychologist, also Millie's mother and long-time collaborator. "The Last Collaboration" is about Millie's last days in hospital. It's acutely insightful, and it's also a significant work of art.
