BIO
Eric Dymond is an artist who works with many tools and programming languages.
He graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design with a BFA in studio.<br />
He exhibited paintings in Toronto, Detroit, New York, Montreal and London during the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's. The paintings were created with sandblasted sprays employing formal themes from the history of painting (still life's , individual portraits, traditional landscapes) . These series appear minimal with repeating content and are a form of Serialism.
In the early 1990's he began working with digital media, building perl programs with TCL/TK, web sites (see the doorway on Leonardo) and stand-alone applications.
He continues working in all media, rejecting specialization.

DISCUSSION

Wikipedia Art


Well, there is an assumption here that could generate more interesting discussion.
Wikipedia exists as an online collaborative encyclopedia. But why do encyclopedias exist? If knowledge is fixed, and the wiki-police seem to think they recognize valid documentation of the world around us better than the collective invlolved in this project then we have a problem. It becomes the judgment of a coterie that determines *truth* or at least *what is it?*. If this project challenges the politcal hierarchy of an encyclopedia with a ^sparkling^ reputation, then it's a good thing.
The most obvious comment here is that a good chunk of wikipedia wouldn't exist without the content provided (without consent) by artists, engineers, etc. etc., most of whom are of course dead.
If the collaborative nature of the artwork and it's lack of a fixed point induces nausea in the wiki collective, then it's probably doing what art does best.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (2009) - Curt Cloninger + Google


and strangely, after 2 clicks the disease link took me to:

" announcing new guest reblogger, Tom Moody
We're happy to announce our new guest reblogger. Tom Moody is a New York-based artist. His weblog documents his studio practice, and also features rants on art, music, film, politics, and low-tech cyberculture. suite! Take it away Tom...
"
which works on many different levels.


DISCUSSION

Response to &quot;New Media Artists vs Artists With Computers&quot;


was there a competition? am i missing something?
i see broadsides from Tom with an odd need to draw parallels where none exist.
net artists vs. artists with computers?
that's sophomoric nonsense,
and truly lazy theorizing. it's a crutch used to illustrate a point that can't be argued with originality.

and those are my broadsides.
where's my shoe, aha here
