A Speed Show is an exhibition format developed by Aram Bartholl.
The basic idea of this exhibition format is to create a gallery like opening situation for browser based internet art in a public cyber-cafe / internet-shop for one night. The exhibition format is free and can be applied by anyone at any place.
.
"Becoming, Not Being" is in reference to flux, change, turbulence, evolution, emergent phenomena, consciousness and the Internet. It's a way of thinking of 'non-selfhood' and an openness to change and flexible notions of self and other. It is a model of thought in which travel and movement, rather than destination and place, become areas of investigation. The world is in constant flux, which creates infinite opportunities for discovery and rebirth. There is no empirical objective structured reality in which we live, but rather fluctuating interference patterns and fractal levels of consciousness and thought which are constantly forming and dissolving like flocks of birds. These spiritual notions of impermanence, non-selfhood and interconnectedness are analogous to the structure of the Internet and the ways in which it has transformed, and will continue to transform human consciousness. I have asked participating artists in "Becoming, Not Being" to consider the title of the show and interpret it freely as they see fit. - Sterling Crispin
