Net artist, media artist, curator, writer, street artist, activist, educationalist and musician. Emerging in the late 80′s from the streets exploring creativity via agit-art tactics. Using unofficial, experimental platforms such as the streets, pirate radio such as the locally popular ‘Savage Yet Tender’ alternative broadcasting 1980′s group, net broadcasts, BBS systems, performance, intervention, events, pamphlets, warehouses and gallery spaces. In the early nineties, was co-sysop (systems operator) with Heath Bunting on Cybercafe BBS with Irational.org.

Our mission is to co-create extraordinary art that connects with contemporary audiences providing innovative, engaging and inclusive digital and physical spaces for appreciating and participating in practices in art, technology and social change. As well as finding alternative ways around already dominating hegemonies, thus claiming for ourselves and our peer networks a culturally aware and critical dialogue beyond traditional hierarchical behaviours. Influenced by situationist theory, fluxus, free and open source culture, and processes of self-education and peer learning, in an art, activist and community context.

Re: [thingist] Re: RHIZOME_RAW: [l0l] LOL#24


I reckon Eryk's got a point,

May be its time to get on with taking things a bit further now, a bit more
respect for each other instead of beating each other over the head. There
have been some pretty interesting items lately that could have been explored
by list users more effectivey that have not been discussed. What's the use
of people bothering to think about something if flame wars keep cropping up.

Let's get busy with debating in depth, plus having playful messages that are
(creative and imaginative) above using the word 'fuck' all the time. It does
get a bit boring, shit - even i'm getting bored with it...

Are They Really?

Blank'the Walker Center for Contemporary Arts is an important online space =
for contemporary digital art'.

Are They Really?

I recently posted a link submission to Walker Arts center suggesting that w=
e would put a link on our site from www.furtherfield.org if they could do s=
ame for us.

furtherfield are an independent collective that has been hosting and suppor=
ting art and net projects for about six years now. We have gain finance by =
independent sources until recently (out of our own income).

I got an email back saying 'We set up links that have a direct relationship=
to Walker, ie: community partner, copartner on an event, sponsorship, rela=
ted to an exhibition, etc. Unfortunately, I can't create the link to your s=
ite since there is not a relationship with us'.

I believe that this is wrong and reflects that the policy is institutionall=
y bound, an isolationist default and does not in any way wish to be open to=
other net arts (groups) outside their own minimal agenda.

By only linking with in-house groups - this gives off the message that they=
are not sharing a platform with independent Internet art collectives. It s=
eems that in reality, their function is to gatekeeper and not share amongst=
the many...

They should question this policy immediately.
