Dates:
Mon Jun 27, 2005 00:00 - Mon Jun 27, 2005

Using ivisit software, I created a video chat room Installation. Anybody is welcome to partecipate to my project, starting from june 21th to july 6th, 2005. Go inside the art section using ivisit software(www.ivisit.com), and look for Digart_world.
You can web cast video, sound, or live events, or just chat with us.

Check also the website of the show www.digart.net/e-xtensioni

Main thopics of the discussion are:

Art and language:
Short term predictions on the creative potential of the Internet.
If creating on the internet is an art form, have you already seen a masterpiece?
What specifically distinguishes net.art from other art forms?
Does the Internet truly transform the dimensions of space and time?

Social themes:
Chat: love and sex online. Only a game or something serious?
The diffusion of works of art online. Who earns and who loses?
What about trying to limit criminality and online terrorism?
The future of technoscience: more robot? more web? more teletransport?

Political ideological themes:
Internet rhymes with democracy or anarchy or dictatorship?
There are those who say monitoring the Internet is not political control.
The hackers. They are the defenders of freedom? Or more like criminals?
Whoever spies or uses telesurveillence online, show yourselves.
We hope access and connectivity online brings peace.

E-XTENSIONI- Extensions between body, mind, and electronic worlds


Dates:
Tue Jun 21, 2005 00:00 - Mon Jun 20, 2005

INSTALLATIONS JUNE 21 TO JULY 6, 2005

EVENTS 1 - 2 - 4 - 5 - 6 JULY, 2005

Chiesa San Giacomo Degli Italiani - Via Depretis 50, Naples(Italy)

http://www.digart.net/e-xtensioni

This first exhibition promoted by Digart, in Naples at the church San Giacomo degli Italiani, presents an exhibition and series of events dedicated to the extension of the body and mind through art and techno-science.
What does one intend by ‘e-xtensioni’? An anthropologist would say that which has always distinguished man from any other animal and the characteristic of the human species is the use of instruments, as a means to improve their condition: in other words, to become civilized. Clothes, the wheel, writing, the paintbrush, and a myriad of other utensils represent an extension of the body and human intelligence. The sophistication of the instruments that humanity has invented, has characterized each phase of the evolution of civil societies, each time creating its model.

Today, in an era of faster and faster growth, from the internet to cyberspace, from robotics to genetics, each extension becomes more complex and sophisticated, to the point that it becomes difficult to distinguish that which is artificial from that which is real, like a prosthesis for the body, distinguishable only by means of equipment just as sophisticated; or between robots that were yesterday mechanic, and today are electronic; the initial models completely remote controlled by humans, which have now been substituted by autonomous models, able to interact and make decisions in self-sufficient ways.

They are equally extended, our collective bodies and minds using internet and cyberspace on behalf of millions of individuals all over the world, or the manipulation of DNA on the part of genetics. Conservative culture indicates that scientific research and technology is a dangerous end with harmful results that will distort the human species from the essence of its most intimate nature, but it does not consider how much our quality of life has improved thanks to this research.

In the area of creativity that includes -the visual arts, mass communications and performance art - E-XTENSIONI wants to contribute to the development, not only locally, of the events and the contact between the public and these practicing artists, ready to “e-xcite,” and inspire poetry, in order that new artists and their experts can enliven the spectators imagination with good will and the conviction that they can- together - extend life and beauty to the “tecniche.”

This exhibition could not be possible without the support of the institutions listed below, and above all the generosity of the artists and critics, who readily supported this initiative with enthusiasm and an unequaled collaborative spirit.
