Gesamtkunstwerk

My argument is that the barrier that once stood between fine art conceptual thought and design conceptual thinking is being broken down as a result of globalisation. [...] I intend to study this by comparing the conceptual thoughts and theories of an internationally recognised fine art master (Joseph Beuys) with the work of a modern day multimedia designer, artist, hacker, performer and genius (Hans Bernhard). [...] Realistically designers are fundamentally different to artists in some ways, for...

Aesthetic Biology, Biological Art

Reading over Jeremy Rifkin's article "Dazzled by the Science," one is struck by a paradox. On the one hand there is the litany of controversial examples pertaining to biotechnology and art. [...] There's a position, [...] and it's very clear: biotech is bad. Or, if we were to be more generous, we would say that Rifkin's position is that biotech is an infringement upon nature, and as such is morally reprehensible, not least because it is driven by economic imperatives. But this, to my mind, verge...

Reseau/Resonance – Connective processes and artistic practice

Most internet art projects use the net solely as a telematic and tele-communicative transmission medium that connects computers and servers through which artists, performers and users exchange data, communicate and collaboratively create files and events. At the same time, some artists are exploring the electronic networks as specific socio-technical structures with specific forms of social and machinic agency related to them, in which people and machines interact in ways unique to this environm...

The Poetics of Augmented Space: Learning from Prada

Having stepped outside the picture frame into the white cube walls, floor, and the whole space, artists and curators should feel at home taking yet another step: treating this space as layers of data. This does not mean that the physical space becomes irrelevant; on the contrary, [...] it is at the interaction of the physical space and the data that some of the most amazing art of our time is being created. Augmented space also represents an important challenge and an opportunity for contemporar...

Defining Multimedia

One reason that digital media have resisted definition to date is that they cannot be adequately described by their materials. Bits of data are elusive things. Because those bits of data are being recombined in media objects through an endless variety of devices, using a constantly expanding range of interfaces, it is a challenge to describe this emerging medium as you would describe traditional forms, such as theater or music. Theater is something that happens on a stage in front of an audience...
