Jonathan Harris and digital artscapes

What interests me in Jonathan Harris's projects is the ability to create stories from different platforms, basing oneself on already existing material out there; out there could be the net, the flood of information that are being uploaded and left on the portals, websites, podcasts...
Being able to archive other people's stories and deciphering them to pure data to be able to manipulate them later on into an interesting form of art seems to be an excellent pathway to the habit the artist has acquired in his early years.
