BIO
D S Pollack as Chase Alias

Performance Artist

Pollack Questions the Idea of Identity in his Performance Art by using Method Acting Techniques Creating Different Identities and Interacting with Other Using Online Social Networks. His Work Add the Internet as a Character and he Emphasizing Mimetic Existentialism. Unlike most Performance Art which lacks any substantial proof of its existence(record), Pollack does use his abilities as a photographer, videographer and Immersion Journalist to record his Intimate Performance Art.

When people ask how I make a living as a Performance Artist, I simply smile and say "Well, to me, living is the performance and existing is the art." -DS Pollack

All love is self-love. All interpretation is self-interpretation. The value of "interpretation" is that through it, one might expose reality, or explain oneself. –Ai WeiWei

The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticizing others, we should evaluate and criticize ourselves. Ask yourself, what am I doing about my anger, my attachment, my pride, my jealousy? These are the things we should check in our day to day lives. -Dalai Lama

"I try to see myself as a sacrifice, just to show the kids they ain't the only ones who up at night." -Kid Cudi

'In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art. ” —Sol LeWitt

Notes on a definition of Net Art based on what I remember from a borrowed copy of Nettitudes



Defining Net Art, a Thread on Rhizome.org a Response
by DS Pollack as chasealias

An interesting thread has been popping up on my email these days. I guess there is a sort of ongoing conversation about the defining of Net Art. It's based around the application process for Net Prix. Which last year attempted to ask for that very definition. I have been carefully listening for my opportunity to chime in.

The thread on Rhizome.org adds valuable a perspectrive about the limitations of previous Net Art definitions. Leading to the interpretation of a need for Net Art to have a greater resemblance to Art in general. The Art and Artist must take into a account the viewer's responses, reactions and interactions. "I agree with this. Art and Artist's should utilize responses, reactions and interactions of the viewers as a basis for conceiving and creating Net Art". This is where I define Net Art, Alter Art(alter-ism), Conceptual Art and Particularly Dada Style Performance Art which when executed online as Net Art can hope to fulfill these issues.

Immersion Journalism and Social Networks have provided a natural progression in Net Performance Art(Alter Art).

First and Only Artists Run Art Fair Scheduled to Open at Wyndham Garden Inn, NYC during Armory Art Weekend

New York, NY – February 13, 2012

Theorize New York: Impossible to Understand, 2012 Black March Edition is the first and only artists run intimate art fair in NYC that will open its doors at Wyndham Garden Inn, Chelsea during Armory Art Week from March 8 through March 12, 2012.

Theorize New York: Impossible to Understand was conceptualized and organized by three artists, Eric Ginsburg, David Pollack and Marina Reiter, as a response to the corporate greed model of the “Blue Chip” gallery and art fair system. Theorize New York is an art fair for collectors and artists run by artists.

“We are very excited to be able to bring this new art fair concept to the artist community,” said David Pollack of Theorize New York. “Theorize gives artists the opportunity to present their work to collectors and galleries directly and engage in an open dialogue. It’s all about giving the artists exposure, a chance to be seen and heard.”

Theorize New York: Impossible to Understand, 2012 Black March Edition Contemporary Art Fair will run March 8-11, 2012 at the Wyndham Garden Inn Chelsea located at 37 West 24th Street, New York City, New York 10010. The art fair will be open daily 12pm -10pm with the Grand Opening scheduled for Thursday, March 8th (5pm Exhibition opens; 6pm -10pm Opening Party).

What is the curatorial aspect of the exhibition Mr Hall? Is it Digital Portraiture? How does "One Portrait" convey a message to us? Perhaps the simplicity and elegance of it's understatement is a part of the esoteric nature we have come to expect in the contemporary art world of today.
