Member Since August 7, 2006

criticalartware is a collaborative [application/platform/concern] compiled at the turn of the twenty first century to address hyperthreaded hystories + [software-as-art/art-as-software]. we are interested in the [connections/ruptures/dislocations] between early moments of artware or Software Art and other instruction set oriented approaches to {conceptual|code}-based artmaking such as Fluxus, Conceptualism, early Video Art, etc… By drawing [parallels/paths] between the [concepts/discourses] of these early moments, we critically question + [re]connect the current context to rightful unruley pasts in a multitude of [personal/subjective] hyperthreaded [her/hi/hy]stories.

in order to do this we interview people who are active in these areas + can speak to their personal experiences of these developments. we have interviewed people such as Kate Horsfield, low-fi, Sherry Miller Hocking, Peter Luining, Dan Sandin, Josh Goldberg, Jane Veeder, Josh Kit Clayton ,Tom Betts, Golan Levin, Olga Goriunova, Alexei Shulgin, matthew fuller, Rene Beekman, Joe Gilmore, Simon Yuill, Sergey Teterin, LoVid, etc… + either now or will soon distribute those interviews (in various formats) freely online as shared cultural resources.
