noplace (2007) by MW2MW


noplace is an installation and website by artist group MW2MW (Marek Walczak and Martin Wattenberg). Drawing on the constant production and organization of information online, the artists developed software that arranges hundreds of feeds according to categories such as "fantasy," "paradise," "dreamscape," and "limbo."� This grouped material is then composited and projected, producing an overwhelming visual environment. By tangibly manifesting the contemporary experience of information inundation, the project proposes to generate "a browser in physical space". The work was included in the group exhibition Video Vortex at the Netherlands Media Art Institute, and will be in the upcoming China New Media Arts Exhibition 2008. - Ceci Moss
