Always Evolving, Historically Rooted — Rhizome Needs Your Support


Still frame from Cory Arcangel, Various Self Playing Bowling Games (2011), as featured in Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools, curated by Christiane Paul for the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Rhizome puts the future of new media art in dialogue with its past — support the conversation, donate today.

Rhizome has been online since 1996 and I have been lucky enough to witness its growth from an informal email list to the organization it is today.

What I appreciate about Rhizome is that even as it continues to evolve and reinvent itself year after year, seeking out emerging ideas, artists, and areas of practice, it remains firmly rooted in a historical context. This can be seen not only in its pioneering work in the field of digital preservation, but also in programming and writing that finds contemporary relevance in media archives and brings different generations into dialogue.

Rhizome is a vital link between the past, present, and future of art and technology.

Support them, as I do. Give today.

— Christiane Paul, curator and scholar

WHITNEY SUNRISE AND SUNSET:
Stephanie Rothenberg, "Outlook: Untitled"
MARCH 30, 2010-

http://www.whitney.org/Sunset

SUNRISE AND SUNSET is a series of Internet art projects commissioned by the Whitney Museum specifically for whitney.org to mark sunset and sunrise in New York City every day. Unfolding over a timeframe of ten to thirty seconds, each project accompanies a transition of the website’s background color from white (day) to black (night) and vice versa. A new project will be posted every three to four months.

The second commission in the series is “Outlook: Untitled” by artist Stephanie Rothenberg (http://www.pan-o-matic.com/about). At sunrise and sunset, a frenzy of faux pop-up advertisements referencing the current world economic crisis take over the screen space of whitney.org. The advertisements are interrupted by a spinning globe that turns into a Magic 8-Ball fortune telling game, inviting visitors to “try me.” The Magic 8-Ball delivers ambiguous messages or cryptic advice about our possibilities of shaping economic structures or affecting the state of the world at the click of a button. “Outlook: Untitled” employs the strategies of mediated Internet culture in which all meaning is delivered instantaneously in visual packets of bits and bytes, yet at the same time, it generates messages that disrupt and question this creation of meaning.

whitney.org - sunset / sunrise series presents
Untitled Landscape #5 by ecoarttech
http://whitney.org/Sunset

A series of Internet art projects commissioned by the Whitney specifically for its new whitney.org site mark sunset and sunrise in New York City every day. Unfolding over a timeframe of ten to thirty seconds, each project accompanies a transition of the website’s background color from white (day) to black (night) and vice versa. A new project will be posted every three to four months.

First in the series of commissions is Untitled Landscape #5, a project by the collaborative ecoarttech (Cary Peppermint and Christine Nadir - http://ecoarttech.net). At sunrise and sunset, fluctuating orbs of light disrupt the "digital landscape," and the information environment of whitney.org is disordered by ecoarttech's visuals, suggesting a natural phenomenon. The size and speed of the orbs will vary based on the number of visitors to whitney.org since the previous sunrise (for sunset) or sunset (for sunrise); higher visitation results in larger, slower-moving orbs. ecoarttech's work has consistently explored relationships between landscape, technology, and culture, and their commissioned work for whitney.org metaphorically explores the museum's information landscape as it is shaped by its visitors.

To see sunset or sunrise, be anywhere on whitney.org.
