online art interventions

Posted by lysanne | Thu Jan 3rd 2013 11:12 p.m.

Hi, I'm looking into online projects, mostly social media based, which could be considered as art interventions online.
I have found the project les liens invisibles, and Paolo Cirio's work to be interesting in this matter. Would there be other projects/readings out there?
thanks!

    Hi there

    I worked with a group of artists in 2011 and 2012 to develop 'Dawn Chorus', an intervention into Twitter. The intervention took the form of us writing the dawn over Twitter, from different locations across the UK. We wanted to intervene into the space of Twitter, which is often seen as literal and ego-driven, with a poetic, playful, semi-fictional account of the dawn.

    In its first iteration, Dawn Chorus was performed entirely online. We liked the idea of different readers seeing different versions of the performance, depending on who they followed. The second time, Dawn Chorus was also streamed live to Vox Populi performance space in Philadelphia (where it was of course not dawn!), and the third time we held an event at a medieval tower in east London at dawn, which included tweeters, storytellers, performers and other artists.

    In each case we tried to make links between the real world and the online world, and to explore how the two realms interact. For obvious reasons, these are difficult projects to document, but we have some transcripts of the performances, and there is some information on my website:

    thanks

    Hi Lysanne,

    My name is Laís and I'm a Brazilian artist. I'm currently pursuing a Master in Fine Art at School of the Art Institute of Chicago - SAIC.
    One of my Saic professors forwarded your post on Rhizome to me. I've a social media art project that uses Facebook as a tool of interaction. Today it has more than 11,000 fans from all over the world.I’ve been exhibiting this work worldwide. In 2011, the project Born Nowhere was selected to Paraty em Foco 7th International Photo Festival, the biggest photography event in Brazil. That same year it received the Juror's Prize from Barbara DeGenevieve at Filter Photo Festival 2011 in Chicago. This work was also shown twice in Venice, Italy in 2012. My work has been published in well-known magazines and blogs in South Korea, Romania, Spain, Italy, USA, Brazil and Mexico. These publications include El País, The Creators Project, Lenscratch, Itsliquid and PDN Pulse.
    I would be very grateful if you could take your time to have a look on my Born Nowhere project.
    The fan Page is:
