post- media art manifesto


coherent!
Thank You Curt, i enjoyed and this is the result:

Work of Post-Art in the Age of Generative Reproduction

The flux creates, the body permeates. In the material reality, art objects are resurrections of the iterations of the flux -- a flux that uses the body as a machine to deconstruct ideas, patterns, and emotions. With the synergy of the electronic environment, the flux is reaching a point where it will be free from the body to transcend immersions into the machinations of the delphic reality. Work of Post-Art in the Age of Generative Reproduction contains 10 minimal dhtml engines (also refered to as "shopbots") that enable the user to make cool audio/visual compositions.

measuring chains, constructing realities
putting into place forms
a matrix of illusion and disillusion
a strange attracting force
so that a seduced reality will be able to spontaneously feed on it

spritehat +^+°'s work investigates the nuances of pixels through the use of stopframe motion and close-ups which emphasize the Generative nature of digital media. +^+° explores abstract and cool scenery as motifs to describe the idea of cyber-intuitive reality. Using bobo loops, cathode rays, and interactive images as patterns, +^+° creates meditative environments which suggest the expansion of space...

post- media art manifesto


Art is dead, so what is left is to kill artists". [Ioffe]

(Ok that was only to get some audience attention).

... Hello,
I would like to express my thought about the manifesto.
I think we are witnessing the rise of the need for a manifesto even between those who enquire in the field of new media art, a need that could reflect the will to get out from a state of common confusion.
Maybe artists, in this era, have too much power on reality, too many tools to create and manipulate it and the result appears to be chaotic.

THE NEED:
- I can remember the manifesto by dark mountain
http://www.dark-mountain.net/about-2/the-manifesto/

- My personal humble attempt to engross people in creating a manifesto (years ago) started with the idea of searching in a rarefied level of shared principles to fix them as a starting point, for example:

UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS
(approved by General Assembly of United Nations in New York, on December 1948)
Art.1- All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

CHARTER OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS OF THE EUROPEAN UNION
ART.11 - Freedom of expression and information
1.Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.
2. The freedom and pluralism of the media shall be respected.
ART.13 - Freedom of the art and sciences
The arts and scientific research shall be free of constraint (*accorded to ethical limits) (...)

I invite YOU Kim and those who are interested, to give a look to a discussion that i started with a friend on our communication board.
http://www.underconstriction.net/en/2009/10/action-based-art/

At the end the question remains unsolved:
what is art?
why art should exist?
and so on...

Please Kim join to the discussion board if You find it useful.

- again the present one by Kim http://nmamanifesto.blogspot.com/
It's meaningful that the Post-media art manifesto contains (point 8. ...What should be the art for in the present era?) a question whose answer we would have been expected to get from the manifesto itself.

THE ANSWERS:
This means that we are looking for answers.
Who cares?
Maybe someone cares.

THE CURE
if we suppose that there's a need for a manifesto, i would suggest few steps:

Check who cares (who? how many?)
FInd or define principles
Share principles
Write a draft of the "charter"
Invite people to join

My personal opinion is that Artists are humans so their needs are not just those of the world of art: an artist's manifesto is about the era in which artists are living (in).

I found the thread very interesting.

I'm so sorry for my english.
I hope it wasn's to bad.
