Applied artist and linquist, also a new genre artist interested in exploring visual rhetorics and the intersections of art, activism and new technology. Since 2000 working primarily in digital media for the internet.

ARTIST STATEMENT
"The conditions and means of artistic creation have changed drasticly through development of technology, usage of numerouse tech- tools and with the transition to new virtual territory.

Humans became chief designers of the environment and life on the whole. Environment today and in the future is about designing versus chaotic / natural growth. "Letting go" of design might be one of the hardest and most unnatural things to do, yet can perhaps elicit rewards far greater than humans can produce.

New art genres are formed in the digital sphera; to fine 2D arts, digital art actictivism, webart
interventions, new visual arts and variouse projects with combined new medium technigues.

However, the new media also has its limitations; such as modality of creating by tool tech- grade or availability, fear of virtual non freedom ( profiling, closed environments, controlling, subjection, discrimination...). New media artist become not just visual designers but social activists as well. That is what I and other digital artist do, in real or virtual world."

DISCUSSION

Re: East Art Map


> The project "East Art Map - A (Re)Construction of the History of
> Contemporary Art in Eastern Europe" -

General impression: good skin but site design intended to broadband users only. hard to browse. content?

Parole: "History is not given. It has to be constructed."

For whom and why?

Namely, reconstructed histories usually come into being in certain contexts, for certain audiences, purposes and platforms.

DISCUSSION

Re: Darko Maver


just shows how media manipulation / identity invention/ identity highjacking is easy on the net and how far it can go ( no limit).

nevertheless nicely thought, researched, performed and with a great finale. great stunt!

excellent. to the point. perception is about resources.

few more words on the distances:

it would be interesting to see the radius of the people on the geographical south.

according to world tourism org 80%of travellers come from just twenty countries of the world so other places must be virtually unreachable for them. tourism is privileged characteristic of the world's Minority, just as internet is.

travel is an essential, fundamental component of the consumer lifestyle.
