Abstract or Description

Software artist Graham Harwood wanted to give his mate Mervin Jarman of the artist collective Mongrel something useful for his trip to Jamaica. Mervin was going back to his native country for a couple of months to give some digital tools to Jamaicans who hardly have any access to computer technology.

Harwood thus began building a software tool called Nine(9), in 2001 as artist in residence of Waag Society.

Nine9 consists of sets of 9 maps in which sound, text and images can be connected to each other in a simple way.
Nine9 is the online follow-up of Linker. Linker is software developed by Mongrel. Linker also exists of a base grid with nine frames. With these frames, a story can be created with linked photographs, text and other media. The software (for Apple Mac) can be downloaded from the Mongrel website.
