For his exhibition, Totally Barely at NO FOUNDATION, David Hanes’ two new bodies of sculptural works address cultural developments in the use and distribution of images and objects. The smaller sculptural works in Hanes' Popular Objects series were created using trending items purchased on eBay. The objects themselves are coupled with digital photographs of themselves face mounted to plexiglass. The shiny photographs act as a digital mirror, simultaneously reflecting and cataloguing these objects. Together, these two series of sculptural works aim to represent the translation of auratic value from the dematerialized online world into physical space, questioning the possibility of these extracted objects holding any of their original desirability.

David Hanes is a visual artist whose trans-media practice explores the space bridging lived experience and art. His work describes a personal relationship to a visual culture that is linked to the underlying currency of everyday life. Exhibiting in both offline and online communities, Hanes has shown work in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Syracuse, Kansas City, Vancouver, London (UK) and the Internet. Hanes runs the "sincerity" blog echolessness.tumblr.com and is the co-founder of the online project yoguy.info. He currently lives and works in Toronto. Website: davidhanes.info

OPPORTUNITY

Call for Artistic Proposals and Submissions_An ILLUMINATED iDENTITY (Images Festival Toronto)


Deadline:
Sat Dec 15, 2012 00:00

Location:
Toronto, Canada


DEADLINE: December 15th, 2012

for addition information contact curator David Hanes:
david.f.m.hanes@gmail.com

Open Call: Undergraduate and Graduate student artists working in and responding to a question of identity and individuality in a context of the Future-Present (democratized
surveillance, weaponized branding, mobilized e-motions, and mythological realities).

XPACE/IMAGES festival is seeking proposals from student artists who are interested in responding to a question of the Future-Present. One could think of the term "Future-Present"
as being a condition in which our dreams of the future collide with the reality of the present and where the real and imagined world are as one after the idealized World of Tomorrow has been dissolved. We live in a world that integrates technology with daily life, causing physiological
and psychological shifts, giving us a kind of cybernetic lens in which to view the world. A lens that not only affects the way we think about ourselves and the world but also the images we use to represent that world. Now that peoples, places, and things are all accessible at the click of a button, what does it mean to be an individual in our contemporary condition and how are our identities formed? Proposals should consider the space the artwork occupies, the media used and its relationship to the subject in question, and a thorough understanding of the relative condition being: the Future-Present.

Proposals are encouraged to be innovative and critical but also visually stimulating and sensorially provocative.

Examples may include, but are not limited to:


    Electronic Submissions only can be sent to: david.f.m.hanes@gmail.com

    Deadline: December 15th, 2012

    DISCUSSION

    Five Videos: Jennifer Chan's I Like To Watch


    The correct, NSFW/original "I Like To Watch" by Chris Korda is hosted on his website: http://www.churchofeuthanasia.org/catalog/video.html (Porn won't stay on YouTube)

    DISCUSSION

    Recommended Reading: Net Narrative catalog


    I really enjoyed reading about the political dynamics of postinternet and the complexities of artistic subjectivity that using different platforms fosters.

    as for the question""What happens when a network that is the product of collective intellectual and social labour becomes commodified without the consent of that network?"

    An expected answer is that people get angry and defensive, distrust academics who don't practice art but theorize it, net veterans act like you are on their turf...intergenerational and intersubjective conflict as far as i know :o

    I think this is a progressive move though, because people who have practices based on lulz and net kitsch for example start voicing their dissent or feeling like they have something at stake (for example, the "new media community" vs. Claire Bishop) and become more open to talking about their practices instead of the refusal or inclination to non-verbal means to discuss their work.


    DISCUSSION

    Art on the Beautiful Island


    wayjayth, thanks for the correction and my apologies for misinterpreting the nationality of the artists. It was absolutely my mistake for misreading the Chinese names for being people from mainland China/of Chinese ethnicity. I grew up in Hong Kong; I should know better.

    Overall I feel like Rhizome cultural reporting overlooks media art in Asia (not their fault if no one is based there) and I happened to see that show and wanted to mention my experience of it.
