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)

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:

after few days the version 2 :
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-).
