I Wanted to See All the News From Today in NETescopio #4

NETescopio

This exhibition opens the second phase NETescopio. It is centered on a recurring practice in artistic productions in the network such as the appropriation and reuse of symbolic materials. Unlike other technological means, the possible digital rather than reproduction, manipulation. More invariance, the perpetual mutation. Rather than copying the remix . This has introduced a series of questions, not only about the notion of original or copy-meaningless notion in the digital-but also about the author, that of owner or collector.

The works in this selection agree this practice of appropriation and reuse, but the deal with different strategies. Find jobs that remix and recombine materials to achieve new compositions, and other respects in which the original composition to recreate a free version. There will be others, however, that address network material or websites and parody, sabotage or manipulate with the intention of distorting his message. Also find artists who operate as collectors, making the cache of your computer in an involuntary wunderkammer , and other proposals that raises the recirculation of information and interaction as a necessary mechanism for the production of meaning. The artist’s role in the network and not the creator but to redirect the information.

Proyecto on-line. 2007

En este proyecto, Callanan nos presenta la miniatura de la tapa de más de 600 diarios de todo el mundo en una sola página web. Induce al navegante a sumergirse en esta colección imposible, en esta masa visual que nos dice mucho acerca de la superficie de las noticias y muy poco o nada de algo más allá.
De alguna forma nos sugiere que es quizás el mismo esfuerzo inútil el que realiza a diario, cada uno de los periódicos y cada uno de los lectores. El de atrapar, el de dar cuenta hoy, de lo que ha ocurrido el día de ayer.

Unsure of how the content of these works’ are related to each other; they are grouped together by Appropriation. Within all these projects elements are borrowed from other sources to create a new work.The borrowed elements may include images, forms or styles from art history or from popular culture, or materials and techniques from non-art contexts.Even though undefinable, they stand on their own as art work.

If we are not to be played and lost like Pawns scrabbling on the surface of a chessboard we need to understand the rules of the game we are engaged in.

As developers buy up our city centres for regeneration into ‘desirable properties for the market’, a similar appropriation is taking place within the spectrum that lies above. The air we breathe is itself becoming digital real estate, an intangible landscape carried on radio waves, filling the voids of our cities like Dark Matter.

The new city is coming – a city whose spaces are connected by hidden electronic passages and data crawl-throughs, spaces where our movements are traceable, recordable and identifiable by the litter of data we carelessly drop and the Web 2.0 we unwittingly spin in the chatter of our networks.

Trampoline celebrates over 10 years in new media art in November with a look at how artists are teaching themselves the game plan for this wireless, super conductive urban landscape that is emerging around us.
