I am going to curate a virtual exhibition online; I have recently subscribed to Rhizome.org for my university’s ‘Contemporary Museums and Galleries’ study assignment. Rhizome specialises in contemporary art practice that engages with technology. The history of NET.ART (Internet art) began in the early nineties when all types of artists had to catch up with the fast paced monopolization of ‘information’ technology’. On Rhizome I can see some great examples of how this unique medium became one of their new playgrounds.
The following make up some of the categories in Rhizome’s artwork archive, referred to as ‘ArtBase’:
Formalism & Glitch
NET.ART and Hypertext
When I’m finished working on it, I hope to post the URL of my virtual exhibition.
What I’ve loved, thought and been inspired by is here as visual record, but as an artist I love that I’m open to those who visit this web page, to those who find it!
I’ve been feeling like a Da Vinci, I’ve recently had too many ideas to record or get down, needing a note book or something to translate them into some type/form of legible medium. I hope I never lose this.
This summer period has held heat waves of both weather and inspirational events, never seeming to lessen their power in either category. The spectacular variety of events and opportunities open to me has been positively overwhelming and humbling for someone in the dawn of their twenties. Finding my recent internship in London has given me a wealth of knowledge and experience in meeting new people and situations that I can now add to my inventory of potential. Studio Reed, 151A Sydney Street, is the metropolitan work base that I am now part of this July and August which specialises in architecture, interior design, artwork and textiles.
