Through one hundred works—restaged and contextualized on a weekly basis at a dedicated microsite—the series will take on the complex task of identifying, preserving, and presenting exemplary works in a field characterized by broad participation, diverse practices, promiscuous collaboration, and rapidly shifting formal and aesthetic standards, sketching a possible net art canon.

ART PROJECTS

Play-lets

playlets.PNG

Launch project

Play-lets is a project for the web by Conor McGarrigle which explores the structure and nature of memory. It is based on the writings of psychologist August Klein and on the deconstructed memories of artist Arthur X. Doyle.

Playlets "are mini episodes which form the structure of memory, they act like navigation aids for the brain with each one pointing to memories from a specific period of time, enabling the mind to recall memories in a time context." August Klein.

It is important to read the background information on August Klein and Arthur Doyle to understand the thinking behind this project.

The project is designed to encourage exploration, there are 25+ pages with no beginning, middle or end, but there is a journey. There are many hidden links and many different ways to navigate through the work.

Microcodes are very small code-based artworks. Each one is a fully contained work of art. The conceptual meaning of each piece is revealed through a combination of the title, the code and the results of running them on a computer.

MISSION ETERNITY

Afbeelding 4.png

MISSION ETERNITY is a METAPHYSICAL adventure: an arcane network of computers, mortal remains, human emotions, cargo containers, scientists, artists, lawyers and hackers - a technical, as well as an organizational and economic nightmare.

MISSION ETERNITY is hybrid art. There is no classic category for such an operation: the venture is far too hubristic, too complex to explain, involving too many specialist disciplines and too many people to fit into one single box - or a website. This documentation is just the tip of the iceberg. Goto MISSION ETERNITY

Around 70 international artists selected with various aesthetic and conceptual approaches who work in fields such as Digital Art, Net.Art , New Media, Interactive Art , Multimedia, JavaScript, Glitch, Video, Online Performance, Animated GIF, and Digital Image.

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.

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 0P3NR3P0.net open database repository for media art.  Over 75 artists have contributed so far to the NetArtizens Open Online Exhibition at 0P3NR3P0.net, an evolving showcase of online works submitted between March 2 and April 2, 2015.
