“Video is the new net art” writes Mark Amerika on Twitter! Given that video art is considered to be one of net art’s original sources, this statement may appear somewhat contradictory. Yet it mirrors the works brought together for this exhibition as well as some art forms emerging on the Internet. Standing at the crossroads of video, cinema and hypermedia, such mixed experiences are revamped via current technological tools such as Video Jockey and animation softwares, webcams, YouTube, Flickr, streaming, cell phone. More importantly, they are revitalized through chance, that great force of the imagination through which the computer’s media principles of predictability are diverted.
These projects are presented in the CIAC e-magazine and will be featured on the Biennale de Montréal space during the month of May.
The CIAC's e-Magazine special edition "Biennale de Montréal" is now online and...in space!
The virtual and in situ exhibition Chance : An Imaginary Tool for e-Art features original artworks from five net artists : Mark Amerika, Grégory Chatonsky, Thomson & Craighead, Martine Neddam and Jhave :
