Re: Re: Cloned Object or Cloned Zanni ? This is the problem


Does the artbase have an historicization function?

Does the artbase have "quality" as distinguishing mark?

what happened with " Hole in the Sky " by Tom Scarpino (Hi Tom) http://www.rhizome.org/object.rhiz?14018 it's not a great thing for the reputation and the reliability of the artbase. Above all because it's a "curatorial oriented" process and not an automatic one.

1- Everybody depends from others, but in this case the work it's the same.

2- There isn't a duty in knowing my 2001 work (even if it passed through the list) but once this thing has been emphasized , why any official voice wrote me back?. ... everybody can make a mistake.. where is the problem?

I'm really disappointed from this behavior
i was expecting an answer from the artbase crew.

Thank you

Re: Cloned Object or Cloned Zanni ? This is the problem


Hi Marc,

no I didn't approach him, because I think there is no reason. Perhaps we had
the same idea.. There is just a difference in the time and as author I
wanted to remark what I did.

I think this fact hides two key issues present in new media art works:
I mean memory and authorship.

Due to the ephemerality of net works, this two factors require a lot of
attention in an historicization - storage process. (even if partial as the
artbase is)

I sent that email to Rachel and Mark but they didn't answer.

Cloned Object or Cloned Zanni ? This is the problem


Dear ArtBase Watchers,

I've just seen the " Hole in the Sky " by Tom Scarpino (Hi Tom) http://www.rhizome.org/object.rhiz?14018

I was wondering if any of you saw my piece done two days after the 9-11 fact. (more or less 2 years ago)
It's the same piece: http://www.zanni.org/pagine/menu12twc.htm

after few days the version 2 : http://www.zanni.org/pagine/menu12twc2.htm
following that first concept but exploring the idea of how -for our generation- 2 simple parallel rectangles could not be seen anymore only as 2 simple geometric figures.

I think some of you remember when I sent an email asking for 3 minutes blank page.
A digital extension of the minute of silence. After that invitation my home page was set with those 2 not loaded images.

Then on July 31th 2002 my Cabinet magazine #7 commission was launched (special issue about -FAILURE-).
"ATTEMPT TO BET TWO FICHES" : http://www.cabinetmagazine.org/art/index.php
