Human Readable Messages Mezangelle

Mez Breeze developed, and continues to write in, the hybrid language mezangelle. Her unorthodox use of language demonstrates the ubiquity of digitization and the intersections of the digital and the real that are increasingly common in 21st century life. As well as creating static literary texts using mezangelle, Breeze also creates multi-disciplinary multimedia works online, and participates in online happenings that blur the lines between on- and off-line behavior.

Artcontext

Mazecorp

Mazecorp \Since 1999, the work titled "Mazecorps" is reflecting a maze-like construction which refers to the possible relationships between cinema, poestry, and networking. That maze has four starting points, encoded by terms representing witnesses of arbitrary arrests. : "à présent - une arrestation - au matin - une mémoire" ("by now - an arrest - in the morning - a memory"). The arbitrary arrest of the photographic act is noticed for photographies are the key elements of mazecorps' story.

Poietic Generator

Poietic Generator a Contemplative Social Network Experiment, since 1986. Every player draws on a small part of a global mosaic formed by the dynamic juxtaposition of those parts, which are manipulated by all the participants (eventually it will be possible for several thousand players to play simultaneously). Every player can therefore change the sign in his/her square, depending on the overall state of the image, which itself depends on the actions of all the individual players.

The Plain Text Players

The Plaintext Players were an online performance (or "cyberpformance") group specializing in directed textual improvisations. Along with a few other groups, they jumped in early with the idea that writing could be a fascinating form of performance, and that writers need not be restricted always to the fixed, edited final text as a mode of production.

The Players have been creating live online and mixed-reality performances since 1994, working with a core group of members and a rotating roster of guest artists.

Dollspace

Dollspace is a web environment, a labyrinth for doll and her orphan words to haunt. Slowly it is shape shifting into a new work,'a smear of roses.'  This fictional hypertext contains several hundred pages which are displayed ni various textual fragments, reproductions of e-mails sent by the characters, images and photographs. Doll Yoko, the central figure of Doll Space , is an imaginary character, half dreamed, half real, both dead and alive: a ghost.

UNOSUNOSYUNOSCEROS

This net-art page by Arcángel Constatini, an astonishing rich and original exploration of hyperlink alternatives and interactive oppertunaties. Arcángel Constantini explores a wide range of media and alternative resources to fuse his ideas and concepts, both in the context of concrete objects and digital processes which include the exploration of sound and noise performance, as well as the art of hacking. He is obsessed with all types of objects and their re-contextualization in temporal spaces, and reconsiders their aesthetics and connections to questions about our existence.

A is for Apple

A is for Apple is a flash website project that uses the hypertext linking of interactive work to investigate a cryptography or hermeneutics of the apple. Using a series of associative links, the work looks for hidden meanings, coincidences, and insights that stem from the apple.  The image of the apple leads to references and ideas borrowing from western metaphysics, popular culture, the history of cryptography, ideas of language, and psychoanalysis. The piece was constructed using the paradigm of collage. First paper collages were made that became the basis for Photoshop images.

Dream 7

Dream7 is a net art piece which purposefully lingers in a state of precognition. Using icons, signs, words, sounds, and symbols Dream7 creates sense impressions that attempt to communicate with the viewer on an almost unconscious level. Dream7's pre-cognitive pieces are not random noise. The narrative slices/trajectories and the vague pictorial objects are purposefully assembled as to evoke a sense impressionistic response.

Museum of Rumour

The Museum of Rumour presents ongoing 'pataphysical research into the study of rumour. It uses a sort of 'gay science' of multiple and contrary theories - from the physics of motion to the surface tension of surfaces to the theory of six degrees of separation.

In particular the museum charts the uncanny connections of the so-called 'small world effect' by mapping the intersections of rumours through the nodal point of Gertrude Stein a well known figure of rumour.

Every icon

Can a machine produce every possible image? What are the limits of this kind of automation? Is it possible to practice image making by exploring all of image-space using a computer rather than by recording from the world around us? What does it mean that one may discover visual imagery so detached from "nature"? (from: artist statement)

Sensity

A series of artworks based on sensing the environment. The results are the visualisation and sonification of real time spaces.

Sensity artworks are made from the data that is collected across the urban and environment infrastructure. The sensors interpret the micro-data of the interactive city. The output from the sensors display the "emotional" state of the city online in real time and the information is also used to create offline installations and sculptural artworks.

Several artworks have been made, and several new physical cities are in development for 2009.

Brandon

Shu Lea Cheang’s BRANDON from 1998-99 is a recently conserved interactive journey that both reconstitutes and speculates upon an ‘all American’ road trip and is inspired by the tragic true story of Brandon Teena, a trans* teenager who was raped and murdered after being ‘outed’. Brandon is a multifaceted web project that uses the nonlinear and participatory nature of the Internet as a means to explore and illuminate Brandon Teena’s tragic story.

ASDFG

"An experimental website, using randomly generated ASCII art and Javascript. Jodi uses the browser to dissolve the configuration of ASCII elements with a figurative contour on the level of the source code into an irritating sequence of signs: lines, dashes, points and cyphers in repeating sequences and variations." —Thomas Dehrer «History of Computer Art»

Bodies INCorporated

Bodies INCorporated is an investigation into social psychology and group dynamics, actualized in corporate structure. It is a collaborative project on many levels, from the team of artists implementing it, to the actively participating audience attempting to gain shares in the body of work. At surface, Bodies INCorporated is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on some of the more obvious contradictions of corporate culture, particularly for those working with art and technology.

LOVE

And that everything one day, an hour, one letter, or one word will be over and just cannot ever be over. A net-art piece by Group Z(Belgium).

LOVE consists of 7 series of 7 pages. They are linked together in an interface that lets you navigate from page to page in 5 directions. From almost every page you can reach 5 other pages.

vISual CHaoS

Visual Chaos is a short web work that that explores the idea of chaos on the web. It uses the space of the web as a sculptural space, allowing viewers to interact with animated graphics to delve deeper and deeper into an imaginary city. The images are culled from various print media sources. The texts are either found passages from urban theory or specifically written poetic musings on the city. The site explores ideas relating to an abstracted idea of the city. The images depict shadows and bodies. It explores the ideas of being swallowed by the city.

The Doorman [passing]

"The doorman" is an interactive, 'photo-cinematic' flash piece, created with documentary photos of the subject shot over two months. Like insert-cuts in films, the sequences can be played over time and arranged in your mind.

A doorman spends his days in the dark of his lodge. His chair gives onto a wall at one corner of the entrance hall. He cannot have an entire view unless he stands on the sill of his porter's office window.
Like the doorman of a theatre who cannot enjoy the show, the doorman sits in his lodge, just witnessing other people passing by.

/source/(postfactual)

A seemingly void, monochrome white surface is all it shows; and frustrates the viewer with a mouse cursor, which is difficult to locate, to control and direct, as isolated potential ‘facts’ pop up in interaction with the cursor : appearing but distorted, head-over and uncomfortably remote, as if projected onto the reverse side of the computer screen. Accumulating alternative facts are accompanied by outbursts of sound and bustle, only to be quenched and extinguished shortly afterwards.

/unstable/

 / unstable /, 2017 is an intuitive 'game' without rules. Again, it confronts the viewer with nothing more than an ‘empty’, white display; and with a cursor that is uncomfortably vague, inconsistent and difficult to locate.

During the opening we copied the whole show and published it on our website without restrictions. Our action upset Hell.com and lead to a cease-and-desist request. While Hell.com recently ceased to exist, our version remained visible ever since."

Beyond

Beyond is a mysterious virtual world. In a playful spirit of philosophical inquiry, it explores the paradoxes of technology, desire, and the paranormal posed since the birth of mechanical reproduction; the phonograph severing the voice from the body, photography capturing the soul and cinema resurrecting the dead. Instructions: - Drag your mouse to the left or right to move around a panorama.

- To move from one place to another, hover the mouse over different objects. When the cursor changes to a hand, you are over a hot spot. - Click on a hotspot to explore.

Body Anxiety

Body Anxiety shares the varied perspectives of artists who examine gendered embodiment, performance and self-representation on the internet.

Throughout art and film history, the female body and nude has been an ongoing subject in male-authored work. More often than not, the woman’s body is capitalized on in these works while their voice is muted. From the Seventies onwards, female artists employed video and performance to reclaim their bodies from this art historical trajectory.

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.

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.

Cameron’s World

“Cameron’s World,” built by Berlin-based designer Cameron Askin, is a frenetic web-collage created as “a love letter to the internet of old.” Divided into thematic rows of over 700 images Askin sourced from archived pages, the website is a well-organized gallery exploding with decades-old browser detritus composed of blinking texts, animated pictorial cursors, MIDI files, and cheesy GIFs.
