I have work in the second part: Quality Control, Opening 19 December 2011 @ CAC Cincinnati

Guest curated by Jordan Tate and Aaron Walker, this exhibition presents three distinct subsets of video art practice. Each one addresses specific concerns relative to the history and future of video art ranging from early portapack experiments to more recent explorations of internet culture and sculptural video installations. The first installment, Screen Test (Nov 5), traces the history of performance video, showcasing the changing role of technology and new media trends. The second, Quality Control (Dec 19), looks at process-based works and the role of video art in a broader, new media context. The final phase, New Forms (Feb 11), builds on the previous installations to consider the future of combined media works and challenge popular assumptions of both the form and function of contemporary video art.

Runtime 3 min 20 seconds

Simulation of a Feeling is a virtual scene constructed of dual holographic cubes within a Second Life landscape. From the cubes Thalia Raftopoulou reads aloud descriptions about platonic solids in her text-to-speech voice. The simulation is an experiment in virtual presence modeled after the weird feeling I had while watching the 1999 virtual reality themed film eXistenZ.

Thursday, 10 November - 30 December 2011

The first exhibition opens the 10th of November at 18.00 in 'Ten Prinsenhove', Koningstraat 8, 2000 Antwerpen

At 19.00 an opening speech by Annick Schramme and some live music by Newton at 19.30

"Since the invention of the animated gif in 1987 the moving image became a well spread fact on the internet. Today, more and more the Gif is experiencing an upraise in popularity and even entering the field of Art.

The animated Gif was invented in 1987, which makes us wonder if there is a Gif today still looping since then. Seeing there is no record of the longest playing Gif, this 'competition' and communal exhibition will mark the start of the loop."

Speed Show – “Becoming, Not Being”

becoming not being2August 27th 9 pm – 2 am

internet-cafe Bordeaux
Schonhauser Alle 52a
10437 Berlin, Germany

“Becoming, Not Being” is in reference to flux, change, turbulence, evolution, emergent phenomena, consciousness and the Internet. It’s a way of thinking of ‘non-selfhood’ and an openness to change and flexible notions of self and other. It is a model of thought in which travel and movement, rather than destination and place, become areas of investigation. The world is in constant flux, which creates infinite opportunities for discovery and rebirth. There is no empirical objective structured reality in which we live, but rather fluctuating interference patterns and fractaling levels of consciousness and thought which are constantly forming and dissolving like flocks of birds. These spiritual notions of impermanence, non-selfhood and interconnectedness are analogous to the structure of the Internet and the ways in which it has transformed, and will continue to transform human consciousness. I have asked participating artists in “Becoming, Not Being” to consider the title of the show and interpret it freely as they see fit.

Impulse 101: An essay about art, the internet and everything




I have discovered the existence of time travelling bandits who steal your original thoughts. They download your files and images, sift through your newest ideas and return with them to the past. They spend years developing and articulating these ideas, using them to give lectures and to write books and essays. Decades, sometimes centuries, later you will discover your ideas in these books and realize what has transpired. At least that is how I like to imagine it happens.

When discovering your writings and artworks have already been done, often in better and more developed versions than your own, it is easy to become discouraged. Instead of feeling like a bad photocopy, I have decided to treat this experience as validating, as being on the right track.

Impulse 101 is a story about art, the internet and everything.

This story is a bus ride from cave painting to post-internet art; along the way it stops to pick up important passengers such as perfectionism, science fiction, minimalism, technology, interactivity, and generational theory. It is a relatively chronological narrative beginning with the evolution of art institutions, the development of the contemporary gallery, and conflicts regarding audience. The story ends with the unification of the preceding topics and the transition from artistic contemplation to erudition which ultimately manifests in a specific approach to art making.

This essay was written with a degree of user-friendliness in consideration of a broad readership.

Wappen is a concept for an exterior installation on the Kammer der Technik building which houses the art space Weltecho.

Wappen, or coat of arms, identifies Weltecho as a citadel of the art world. In place of a shield, this coat of arms holds an icon which takes form only after an act by the observer.

The installation is 10 x 10 meter sign mounted on the northern façade. The shape of the sign forms a white cube. The white cube is depicted as a three-dimensional representation of a tesseract, or hypercube. Its contours are defined by retroreflective sheeting; the image becomes revealed or obscured contingent on ambient light.

A white cube is a term used to describe a contemporary gallery or art space; the white cube houses art objects and presents the viewer with a void for the unadulterated reception of artwork. A white cube provides a timeless space; furthermore the burdens of its physical location and influence of the exterior world are diminished. Not all art spaces conform to this white cube classification, nonetheless identifying a location as a white cube readily conveys the underlying archetype. Like a flag driven into a mountaintop, the emblem of a white cube on the building brands the Kammer der Technik as an art space.

In Wappen, the depiction of the cube is shown as a hypercube; this image extends the metaphor of the white cube into four-dimensional space. As we are bound to three-dimensional space, we cannot directly experience the fourth dimension. Like the arts, the abstract concept of the fourth-dimension cannot be held or touched and is only made material when imagined.
