Long DescriptionInstead of treating art as a unique creation that requires reason and refined taste to appreciate, Elizabeth Grosz argues that art-especially architecture, music, and painting-is born from the disruptive forces of sexual selection. She approaches art as a form of erotic expression connecting sensory richness with primal desire, and in doing so, finds that the meaning of art comes from the intensities and sensations it inspires, not just its intention and aesthetic. By regarding our most cultured human accomplishments as the result of the excessive, nonfunctional forces of sexual attraction and seduction, Grosz encourages us to see art as a kind of bodily enhancement or mode of sensation enabling living bodies to experience and transform the universe. Art can be understood as a way for bodies to augment themselves and their capacity for perception and affection-a way to grow and evolve through sensation. Through this framework, which knits together the theories of Charles Darwin, Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, and Jakob von Uexküll, we are able to grasp art's deep animal lineage. Grosz argues that art is not tied to the predictable and known but to new futures not contained in the present. Its animal affiliations ensure that art is intensely political and charged with the creation of new worlds and new forms of living. According to Grosz, art is the way in which life experiments with materiality, or nature, in order to bring about change.

The data feed API is URL based, but if you prefer to use the REST interface, you can do most things using that method.

Your API key should be in the request header "x-api-key" but will also work on the URL if you prefer using keycode=????????

When accessing the API using REST, the URL needs to be in this format:


version: The API version you are trying to access starting with the letter "v" followed by the version number as an integer. (ie: v3 or v2)

action: The action you wish to perform. Not all actions are currently available using the API. The ones that work currently are:

dataID: This is the data you are searching for. For "find" this is an EAN or UPC code. For "search" this can be any text properly encoded for he URL.

To get your data back as XML, put "application/xml" in your "accept" header. If you prefer JSON (the default format) you can leave off the "accept" header or send "application/json". You can also include your preference on the URL using mode=json or mode=xml but using the request header is the preferred method.

We will continue to add more REST interface features in the future so be sure to check back on this page every once in a while.

*** Updating data via the REST interface is not ready yet but will require test=1 on the URL as the first variable if you are testing your application to prevent actual data updates. Placing it later on the URL could cause this variable to be skipped if you have errors in your URL.
