francesca d'antona for sun wu-kung

carlo zanni a.k.a. beta

STATEMENT: The Church of Software promotes the files' entry in the art market.
Up till now the files have been used as a means to do an artwork. But now they need to become a real buying/selling art object.
The Church compares the File to the genius and its primary support to the Aladdin Lamp.
In the same way you have to wipe the magic lamp to see the genius, you need to load the file to see it.
Till today Artists and art Dealers sold just photos of the genius.
The Church promotes the commercialisation of the genius
The Church isn't a net product but it is born in the net; and it agrees with its characteristics as the possibility to have a total sharing of a document without cancelling the concept of property.
Software/files
>>>>>
The Church (net) >>>> Sharing + Property
>>>>>
Art Market
The approach to the Church must be first contemplative and then interactive.
It is not possible to use the Church directly as it is not possible to use directly a theory without mediation with the referential field.

Janne Vanhanen

TITLE: All.ra

STATEMENT: Very literal and formalist representation of the contents of my hard disk, "All.ra" compresses all my sound files into a 24 second Real Audio file, mediating audio material via graphical-visual interface with no regard to the aural aesthetics of the end result.

Mauro Ceolin

STATEMENT: "MY POETRY IS MY HARD DISH" @ "To turn the computer on, to connect to the net, to surf and download images, to accumulate data, to copy and paste, to save on hard-disk. Like a crazy search engine that suddenly is emptied of all contents, I superimpose words, logos and images: bright star(t-up)s or corpses of the human audience that upon each waking up wonders: what’s new?"

Alisdair MacRae

TITLE: Untitled

STATEMENT: My grandpa recently passed away at the age of 98. Going through the belongings in his apartment, my mom found a wallet with old money in it. Amongst the currency were 57 one-dollar bills. The bills, although only money, are very significant to me.

First, I loved my grandpa very much, and these bills provide a link to my memory of him. Second, the
collection stands for the type of person he was. He liked the look and feel of the old paper money. As with my grandma who collected stamps, he saw a greater value in the collection than the monetary qualities.
Lastly, and perhaps most important, is that I too kept a number of the paper one dollar bills. Ten to be exact.

 

bituur esztreym & caoua serein

STATEMENT: the greasy increasement of WeB_ArT is a pleague, especially when you consider WeB_ArT, (1996-2002), is dead and buried into the vanishing understatement of klunking home-to-be-experienced desorganisation of technè and arduous brow-se-system. say : erhhh...? : gshwwwwuitt... warmly yours. vnatrcian|fruity|staff

Jo Cook

TITLE: SKINS.INF

STATEMENT: I stumbled on this SKINS.INF folder while I was absently cruising my hard drive looking for inspiration (the date & time of this stumbling is recorded in the window). The text on the left of the page is the folder's poem and is exactly as I found it; I simply composed notes on skin (& related themes) using the found poem as a jumping off point & amplifying its erotic content.

Tiia Johannson

TITLE: Black Sun

STATEMENT: Black Sun is an interactive graphics creator dedicated to Julia Kristeva. Black Sun by the means of melancholy… Identity is fluid, you constantly have to demolish and gather it, it is not stationary. Mutation and transformation are the conditions of transfixion and mark time. This matter also touches the level of intimacy - you have to be plastic to survive. The convertible graphic image and visuals are the reflections of plastic culture and personality.

Pete Kelly

STATEMENT: I’m a sound artist / electronic music composer based in Leeds, England. One aspect of my work is to create animations with soundtracks and I just did this for fun really.

‘Rubbish Search Engine’ TM

"A frivolous piece, ‘Rubbish search engine’ is an interactive (kind of !) work. It pretends that it is looking for a document in four fictional folders. Basically, the pseudo-program is no good ! - It doesn’t search for anything, it forgets what you asked for and it simply messes itself up. I like the idea that it is ‘honest’ and completely useless!"

Jane Griffin

STATEMENT: In thinking about the structure of my computer file system, I sat staring at my reflection in the computer screen, thinking about how hard it all used to be to understand. I remembered losing files. Emails arriving and then disappearing into my computer's nether regions.Strange virus warnings. Unsolicited advertisements appearing from the ether. Searching for solutions, trekking through file after file. Then I realised that mostly I had managed it all with a wing and a prayer.

TITLE: shareware

STATEMENT: shareware is the contents of our site, it is related to the body of work system shutdown , and was created specifically for digital pockets.

SYSTEM SHUTDOWN is a series of paintings, technical interventions, Internet and Multi Media based works by Yoke and Zoom based on the theme of the breakdown of technology. For this exhibition we have been painting fractured electronic systems and deconstructing actual computer equipment, stripping technology down to its basic components and removing the user friendly interface. The work depicts machines that are defunct, have crashed, have viruses or have been destroyed by human intervention. Computers show blank screens or error codes becoming victims of information overload. CCTV cameras that are obsolete in their design. Circuit boards that are so badly wired they could not possibly work are placed alongside motherboards that are crudely smashed.
