"I wished to make porn loops accessible via URL (browser) and QR-Code (stickers) for tablet and smartphone screens, the new peep show digital mobile devices, approaching gifs as Stan Brakhage approached films and approach porn as Lasse Braun did it producing film loops but, this is not the golden age of porn, Red Link District, as well as Pirate Porno Material 1&&2, are gif loops from the dark age of porn.
Thoughts about pornography….."

About the Shredder
Why Shred the Web?

The web is not a publication. Web sites are not paper. Yet the current thinking of web design is that of the magazine, newspaper, book, or catalog. Visually, aesthetically, legally, the web is treated as a physical page upon which text and images are written.

Web pages are temporary graphic images created when browsing software interprets HTML instructions. As long as all browsers agree (at least somewhat) on the conventions of HTML there is the illusion of solidity or permanence in the web. But behind the graphical illusion is a vast body of text files -- containing HTML code -- that fills hard drives on computers at locations all over the world. Collectively these instructions make up what we call 'the web'. But what if these instructions are interpreted differently than intended? Perhaps radically differently? Read more »


darknet shopper

The Random Darknet Shopper is an automated online shopping bot which we provide with a budget of $100 in Bitcoins per week. Once a week the bot goes shopping in the deep web where it randomly chooses and purchases one item and has it mailed directly to the exhibition space. Once the items arrive they are unpacked and displayed, each new object adding to a landscape of traded goods from the Darknet.

The Random Darknet Shopper is a live Mail Art piece, an exploration of the deep web via the goods traded there. It directly connects the Darknet with the gallery. By randomizing its consumerism, the bot is guaranteed a wide selection of goods from the thousands listed on deepweb markets.

!Mediengruppe Bitnik (read - the not mediengruppe bitnik) live and work in Zurich/London. They are contemporary artists working on and with the Internet. Their practice expands from the digital to affect physical spaces, often intentionally applying loss of control to challenge established structures and mechanisms. !Mediengruppe Bitniks works formulate fundamental questions concerning contemporary issues.

Indirect Flights

indirect flights

Indirect Flights, a new online work by Joe Hamilton with sound by J.G. Biberkopf and supported by The Moving Museum, is a sprawling landscape of layered images. Raw materials, satellite images, organic textures, brush strokes and architectural fragments are all blended together into a dense panorama extending in all directions. As you pan across the terrain like Google Maps the layers move at different speeds giving the illusion of depth, constantly changing what is hidden and exposed. This shifting composition is an attempt to depict contemporary landscape, in a moment defined by the proliferation of digital technologies and the global transportation of bodies, commodities and goods. Launch Indirect flights

it's doing it / it did it

It’s doing it is an online group exhibition of computer generated images that autonomously updates on a daily basis over the course of 45 days. All of the works in the show are instruction-based artworks expressed through computer programs written by the artists. These programs generate new images once daily that can be viewed on the website. Each instantiation of the show, while being similar to the previous and following ones, is unique, emphasizing the expressive, data-driven, and intelligent possibilities of randomness for art creation in the context of the digital. Previous iterations of each artwork can be seen by changing the date in the top right of this page. Launch this project.

Catalog of Internet Artists Clubs

Websites in the catalog are categorized as either surf clubs, art clubs, or related sites. The term surf club originated from the Nasty Nets group blog tagline "Internet Surfing Club," and is often used to describe group artist blogs where the prevailing subject is internet culture and aesthetics and where lines are blurred between the roles of artist, curator, and archivist.

The 3D Additivist Manifesto

"We call for you - artists, activists, designers, and critical engineers - to accelerate the 3D printer and other Additivist technologies to their absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird."
Submit to The 3D Additivist Cookbook... Answer the call:
#Additivism is essential for accelerating the emergence and encounter with The Radical Outside.
The 3D Additivist Manifesto was created by Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke, with sound design by Andrea Young.

The NetArtizens Project


Created by Furtherfield with Nick Briz & Joseph Yølk Chiocchi
. Launch The NetArtizens Project or Launch NetArtizens Open Online Exhibition
In the age of social media, our conversations, gossip, discourses, research, decision making, organizational and artistic work are “intertwingled” (to use Ted Nelson’s playful term) with exponentially exploding repositories of media and information. Nowadays, our everyday communications are embedded with the metadata of search querys, hyperlinks, hashtags and usernames. To the extent that we practice these new techniques of “social taxonomy,” how can we use them to examine and dissect our individual and collective net behaviors?

During the month of March 2015, The NetArtizens Project was conducted as a social experiment in discourse and artistic production across 3 network channels: the NetBehaviours Mailing List, Twitter @NetArtizens, and the open database repository for media art.  Over 75 artists have contributed so far to the NetArtizens Open Online Exhibition at, an evolving showcase of online works submitted between March 2 and April 2, 2015.

My Desktop Life

my desktop life.

My Desktop Life is a new tool made to create online in a very free and personal way. It’s now on view in Art On Your Screen in ZKM Karlsruhe, who initially sponsored its creation.

With my new tool I could make several short films entirely created in a browser and displayed inside a browser. 
Here you can watch a creation I made called “This is home”.

Watch it, it’s seven minutes long and if you want to know how it’s made, follow my instructions. Notice on the left-hand top corner a very small check box, click on it, and see the film editor at work. Don’t hesitate to play with it and modify whatever you want in order to understand the functioning.
This prototype of an online editor is an opening for new opportunities of creations inside a browser.
 I’m currently working on the interface that will let user create with the use of the same tool as mine.
Next year, you will hear more about it.
 So stay tuned.

With MyDesktopLife, it is just the beginning of a long story of online creation.
