The last in a three-part series that features presentations by artists awarded grants through Rhizome’s Commissions Program. Founded in 2001 to support artists working with technology, the Rhizome Commissions Program has awarded fifty-four commissions to date. Projects realized through the Program represent some of the most forward-thinking and innovative works of media and Internet-based art. In this evening’s program, the artists will discuss their commissioned projects and larger bodies of work.

Rhizome.org 2006-2007 Commissions / project: Oppera Internettikka – Protection et Sécurité by Annie Abrahams & Igor Stromajer (jurors: Lauren Cornell, Regine Debatty, Olia Lialina, Eduardo Navas, Marisa S. Olson); Rhizome.org, NYC, New York, USA (direct link)

Oppera Internettikka – Protection et Sécurité explores the poetics of a contemporary sound form — opera as a sound event for the audience in the form of a live internet audio broadcast. In that way it combines the notion of the world wide web communication protocols and classical artspace — an opera house. Opera is a very strictly coded form of art with a lot of passion, and internet is a lonely place of solitude and intimate communication which is becoming more and more fragile, dangerous and suspicious.
