Urban Island > http://www.urban-island.org

Applied artist and linquist, also a new genre artist interested in exploring visual rhetorics and the intersections of art, activism and new technology. Since 2000 working primarily in digital media for the internet. Her work has been shown internationally in online and offline venues such as Stoke Newington Art Festival, Art Addiction 1st Medial Biennial, Absolute arts.com, Artmajeur, D'Art etc.

ARTIST STATEMENT
"The conditions and means of artistic creation have changed drasticly through development of technology, usage of numerouse tech- tools and with the transition to new virtual territory.

Humans became chief designers of the environment and life on the whole. Environment today and in the future is about designing versus chaotic / natural growth. "Letting go" of design might be one of the hardest and most unnatural things to do, yet can perhaps elicit rewards far greater than humans can produce.

New art genres are formed in the digital sphera; to fine 2D arts, digital art actictivism, webart
interventions, new visual arts and variouse projects with combined new medium technigues.

However, the new media also has its limitations; such as modality of creating by tool tech- grade or availability, fear of virtual non freedom ( profiling, closed environments, controlling, subjection, discrimination...). New media artist become not just visual designers but social activists as well. That is what I and other digital artist do, in real or virtual world."

Re: Join the De-Tourism Center and rework the circuits of bucolic tourism!


Problem with tourists and tourism is that this industry viewes places as an aggregate of tourist attractions, looking for of cultural differences and local identities while the tourist cannot keep track of historical transformations without critical opinion except when it comes to personal comfort.

Tourism migrates cultures and changes traditions. The mass of the tourist globalisation supersede cultural diversity and standardise tourist experiences.

Through its 'needs', the industry oftenly creates monuments, events and custums, reshapes the environment to be touristically validated. The growing volume of tourism also speeds up the process of monumentalization. Inherited architectural and artistic styles, political prejudices, religious myths and traditional customs are no longer meant to be transcended but touristically consumed without consideration.
Heritage tourism, eco tourism and cultural tourism are just self-pretend cleverly labeled modern tourist products, invented just as all other before them ( exotic travel, adventure travel ...).

We are going through the stage of Total tourism which transforms drug dealers shooting at each other or any other social phenomena in an exciting tourist scene and usable 'product'.

Program Creators for digital asset management systems operating on

See http://www.interwoven.com or http://www.artesia.com/html/products.html

Does it all melt down to entertaining communication channels where in knowledge based society the only currency is 'time/ not money is a value' so we spend our time on 'creative': ideas, art, interactivity, trends...

I want to know whether the noise energy in eter as 'material' can be stored and produced into a usable form instead of cluttering the environment. Where is a point of saturation?
Appreciate a link.
