Net Art Versioning


using the same kind of language to different ends doesn't seem a good choice. I mean, using "net art 2.0" with a different intention than the use of "web 2.0" is contradictory. You want to say something, but the words you use mean another thing, very different...

Insisting on the use of "net art 2.0" would obligate you to ALWAYS make the (good) clarification made by Whid. If not enough, it also brings a kind of "futuristic logic", like the ones which drive the market, the industry and their discourses.

best,
andrei

CALL FOR WORKS - Percursos Project


CALL FOR WORKS
Percursos Project
2007

Paths of the gaze, paths in time, paths taken in space, in the city,
in the landscape. Paths one can draw, imagine, make possible,
traverse. The Percursos Project is an initiative of a
multidisciplinary group of artists (acting in the area of visual art
and design) moved by the desire to find new ways to perceive normally
unnoticed situations in daily life. Percursos aims to establish
dialogues through artistic proposals introduced as elements of
"contra-flux" (against the flow), thus suggesting conversations,
sharing and exchanging many different possibilities and gazes in
relation to daily reality and the city.
Percursos is taking place in the city of Porto Alegre (Rio Grande do
Sul, Brazil) from the 11th of September to the 11th of December, and
includes exhibitions, performances, interventions and web art. As part
of this project, we are launching this announcement for work
submission in order to show and diffuse works by artists as well as
open this exchange network up to the public.

Re: RHIZOME_RAW: Rothko Generator - last chance to see


hello Maya,

I really love Rothko paintings and I am very curious about the work. I
looked at the images and videos in your site, and I was asking me: what are
the work characteristics that are different from the work by Rothko, and how
the fact of they are generated from internet data affects them? I can see
the movement (the animation of the paintings) in the videos but, because I
am seeing only the documentation, I guess that there is more to be seen in
the work (i.e., your work brings movement to Rothko paintings, but I guess
it brings more things too, although I cann't be sure about what they are).

bye, and congratulations for the exhibition,
andrei
