A Net Art Pioneer Evolves With the Digital Age: Rhizome Turns 20

Five years ago, Rhizome, the New York–based nonprofit that has devoted itself since the mid-’90s to the promotion, and later to the preservation, of digital art, took up a cause: the deletion of a video by YouTube. The video itself is inoffensive. A young woman stares impassively at the screen as various cheesy animations pop up—pizzas, lightning bolts, hearts, ice cream cones, kittens. Artist Petra Cortright made the piece in 2007 when she was a student at Parsons in New York; she had just bought a $20 webcam, and was experimenting with its software.

Best of 2015: Our Top 10 Works of Internet Art

For decades, online-only works and exhibitions have popped up to display visuals meant for screens, accessible to anyone with a computer and WiFi. Since 2013, Hyperallergic has been ranking the best art in Brooklyn, New York City, and even the world — but we have not yet tackled the World Wide Web. Catalog of Internet Artist Clubs. Dazeddigital. How do you preserve art created on social media?


As more artists start experimenting with social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, the question has taken on new urgency. Some, like Richard Prince, quite literally print out their work to hang in galleries. Would you buy a GIF as a work of art? The Pirate Cinema Transforms Film Torrents Into Illicit Interactive Art. There’s no denying that a lot of what travels on peer-to-peer networks is art in one form or another, but the file-transfers themselves usually aren’t considered art works themselves.

The Pirate Cinema Transforms Film Torrents Into Illicit Interactive Art

Enter: The Pirate Cinema – the installation that aims to turn a heavily seeded Blade Runner torrent into something worthy of a gallery wall. The Pirate Cinema , which just ended a run at the Sight + Sound festival in Montreal yesterday, uses the top torrents from the Pirate Bay to project a steady stream of pop culture images and their electronic origins and destinations on the installation’s walls. The images – many of them still incomplete files – are meant to make “visible the hidden activity and geography of peer-to-peer file sharing.” RRRRRRRROLL_gif.

For re:publica, one of Europe’s largest conferences about social media, blogging and the digital society, Precious design studio created an analogue twitter wall to deter visitors from their usual stares at the digital screens by bringing the virtual to the physical space and creating action around it.

re:publica 2012 analogue @twitter wall by Precious - 38,378 printed tweets (@preciousforever)

During the course of 3 days a total of 38,378 tweets appeared on the wall. Printing out tweets and pasting them on a wall was one of the first ideas they had. It also inspired everything else they developed for the conference – signage, video trailer, stage design etc. The 14 x 3 meter scaffolding construction was erected in the central area of the location to become “live” twitter coverage on layers of A4 printed paper. Even though everything worked out as planned, there was something beyond their control: the reactions of 4000 attendees. Using Node.js + nTwitter the team listened to Twitters Streaming API and collected all tweets with the conference hashtag #rp12.

During this break from the games biz I’ve been playing around with hardware hacking, interactive and generative installations and artwork, and delving into some theory on larger questions of art, design, and technology.

Acid Colors Variations. Friendster Friday. BeMySatellite. L’art de la capture d’écran, de Richard Prince à l’auto-screen. Une polémique enfle au sujet du travail de Richard Prince exposant pour des centaines de milliers de dollars des photographies capturés sur Instagram.

L’art de la capture d’écran, de Richard Prince à l’auto-screen

Elle se cristallise notamment autour de la question juridique puisque l’artiste plaide le « fair use » (usage loyal à caractère transformatif) pour justifier la valeur artistique de son geste d’appropriation mais qui est ressenti par certains auteurs des photographies capturées comme de la simple prédation. Dans ce blog consacré à décrire empiriquement la culture mobile sur la base de collecte de corpus et d’entretiens, nous voudrions aborder la controverse Richard Prince en nous focalisant sur le type de contenu au coeur de cette polémique, à savoir non pas des photographies mobiles mais des captures d’écran agrandies et exposées.
