Lee Marvin Toolbox

Lee Marvin Toolbox
by
Jorn Ebner

is now available in English translation - at www.leemarvintoolbox.net

Lee Marvin Toolbox was awarded the Kunstpreis 2001 of Medienforum Munchen.

The jury - Monika Fleischmann (GMD, St. Augustin/Bonn), Gerfried Stocker
(Ars Electronica Center Linz), Tjark Ihmels (award holder 2000) as well KP
Ludwig John and Ulrich Muller (both Medienforum Munchen) - decided
unanimously for the project LEE MARVIN TOOLBOX of London based artist Jorn
Ebner.

Lee Marvin Toolbox is a filigree and elliptical work for the internet. With
Flash animations which can be stylistically ascribed to the young British
design-school, Jorn Ebner makes Navigation on the internet his subject
matter and counters them in an ironical way with the famous cowboy song, "I
was born under a wanderin star".

The work is best viewed with Internet Explorer 5.x and higher, and requires
a Flash5Player Plugin.

    This piece is tremendous!
    The description-

    <...stylistically ascribed
    to the young British
    design-school, ....Navigation on the
    internet his subject...
    .....counters them in an ironical way ....>

    made me fear the worst.
    The work is great, like a sort of multimedia Ben
    Marcus.
    Wonderful stuff!
    Michael

    I couldn't get it to work on pc - I thought that it was an ironic piece so I
    laughed very quietly...

    It's great -worth persisting with, even to the extent
    of going to somebody else's place, comandeering their
    computer and watching it there.
    So frustrating when you've worked hard on a piece
    ,done all the right things and it doesn't run for some
    deeply arcane reason on some particular machine.
    But the piece itself- hard to say why it's great but
    there's something deeply touching about it. The use of
    the Lee Marvin thing is not just tedious chummy
    postmodern club irony but transcends it completely.
    And there's something about the way the various
    windows pop up against the background of the cheesy
    and yet rather beautiful song that again I have to say
    is *moving*. So hard often to say exactly why one
    thing feels like authentic art and another phony but
    this piece definitely does it for me. They were right
    to give it a prize.
    persist!

    Will try again - got nothing against irony or satire at all. Some of the
    most effective art/music is ironic and still possesses soul...
