JavaMuseum - Forum for Internet Technologies in Contemporary Art
www.javamuseum.org
entitled
"Fundamental Patterns - Peripheral Basics"
is online since 8 November 2002.

***********************************

summary:
JavaMuseum is proud to give the JavaArtist of the Year Award in 2002 to one
single artist:
Calin Man from Arad/Romania,
an this outstanding net artist who combines artistic expression and
statements with substantial power, technological activity and excellence in
sustained work.

The show of
"Fundamental Patterns - Peripheral Basics"
is based on an online competition of the same name
and consists of three parts:

1. solo presentatation of Calin Man, winner of JavaArtist of the Year Award,
2. finalists of the competition
3. exhibition out of concurrence, entitled "MANDALA"
refering to the subject of the show by students of the
University of the Philippines under the supervision of Fatima Lasay.

************************************

introduction:
The second year's program of JavaMuseum, eg "2nd of Java series"
has a special subject during one running year (Spring 2002-Spring 2003),
entitled:
"Fundamental Patterns - Peripheral Basics".
After the first event in July, entitled "Actual Positions of Italian
Netart",
the main show of of the year in the framework of "2nd of Java series"
represents
"Fundamental Patterns - Peripheral Basics"
discussing and confronting artistic and philosophical positions of
Western and Eastern culture:

What are the fundamental patterns of contemporary living and art,
what kind of peripheral basics are defining them?
What are the fundamental patterns of the virtual
environment of Internet? Mere simulation?
Or rather something profoundly new?
In which way changed patterns and the peripheral
basics from physical to virtual level?
How do they influence sensual and intellectual perception ?

The special interactive exhibition interface created by
Agricola de Cologne, media artist operating from Cologne/Germany
and curator of this show
takes all the aspects and composes them to a kind of Western "mandala",
interlinking the material and spiritual, a way which is taken by the
competition finalists in different individual ways:
The answers are not clear yet as the way is the goal.
