New Media Presentation / Discussion – Part of New Silent
Saturday, October 11th 2008 at 3pm
the New Museum, New York, NY

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.

# 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);, 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.

4.2 kg of #netart! ➡ 15 years ago, back in 2001, I won the ARCO El Mundo Net Art Award at ARCO – International Contemporary Art Fair in Madrid for the 'best net art work'. The jury members were Christine Vanassche (Chief Curator, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris), José Jiménez (Aesthetics Professor, Universidad Autonoma de Madrid) and Benjamin Weil (Curator, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art). The one responsible for the whole thing was Vicente Matallana, LaAgencia. We just tried our first VR sex. After fifteen minutes, we all took our gear off. Nothing to like here: Social network algorithms are framed by sexist, class-specific, and racist assumptions. My car, #pixelized. #Tetrisized. #Minecrafted. I eat breakfast in the evening. No one's gonna sleep tonight: we'll makelovenotart and read Kant, Marx, and Wittgenstein to each other. ✖ no-files-non-art work = makelovenotart / #netart #postart #notart #preart + #art 🐼 ◼ 〰 ▶ ✖ ✔ 〽 ⬇ ♻ ✴ 🅾 ▪
