Founded by experts from the former NIMk, LIMA is the international platform for sustainable access to media art. With knowledge and passion for both art and technology, these experts are insuring that video, digital and performance artworks can and will be presented now and in the future. Through (online) distribution of our own collection, we keep abreast of technical issues and advances. With our storage and digitisation services we are additionally able to provide support to museums, galleries and individual artists. And in collaboration with artists, museums and universities LIMA carries out research in preservation and accessibility of this segment of our cultural heritage. Launch: LIMA
1:1 was a project created in 1999 which consisted of a database that would eventually contain the addresses of every Web site in the world and interfaces through which to view and use the database. Crawlers were sent out on the Web to determine whether there was a Web site at a specific numerical address. If a site existed, whether it was accessible to the public or not, the address was stored in the database. However, the Web was changing faster than the database was updated and in 2001 it was clear that the database was outdated.
1:1(2) is a continuation of the project including a second database of addresses generated in 2001 and 2002 and interfaces that show and compare the data from both databases.
Geoffrey Lillemon (1981 USA) brings a classic romantic painting and drawing style to technology to reinterpret artistic practice. As one of the leading artists of the Net Art Movement, Lillemon has consistently foregrounded the interplay between the digital and physical world in his work, blending the traditional mediums with interactive animation that responds to human touch, brainwaves, and even heartbeats. Using various art forms, from mixed and moving media to literature and soundscapes to classic portraiture, he creates works of hallucinatory poetry that reach into the infinite depths of the subconscious where the real and the imaginary interact. Lillemon has exhibited internationally as Oculart, including being the Invite d'Honneur at the Centre Pompidou, was a founding member of studio Champagne Valentine, and is currently an artist in residence at Random, Amsterdam, Netherlands
