BIO
Rob Myers is an artist and hacker based in the UK.

I have been creating images of the contemporary social and cultural environment through programming, design software and visual remixing since the early 1990s. My work is influenced by popular culture and high art in equal measures. My interest in remixing and sampling has led to my involvement in the Free Culture movement. I have been involved in the public consultation regarding the Creative Commons 2.0 and CC-UK licenses. All my visual art is available under a Creative Commons license.

My interest in programming has led to my involvement with the Free Software movement. I developed the Macintosh version of the Gwydion Dylan programming language compiler. All my software is available under the GNU GPL.

We are greatly enjoying talking about ourselves in this way and are considering becoming king of Poland.

Breaking the Ice


Netart doesn't make sense in ten-year-old list serve terms, or veteran websites still clinging on to their 227 page archives. It makes sense now and only now"

Did IQs drop sharply while I was away?

DISCUSSION

‘Decode’ at the V&A: Digital Reflections and Refractions


I held of on reading this until I (finally...) finished my own review of Decode.

Some of the works were out of order when I visited as well. ;-)

I think the lack of context might be because the show presents the work as "design" rather than art (for whatever reason). It's about the aesthetics and the technique, not the content or the subject. I was glad to see such a major presentation of digital art. But I was disappointed that it wasn't really framed as art.
