Mlik Sahib's curator insight, April 2, 7:41 AM

“"Art Post-Internet” presents a broad survey of art that is controversially defined as “post-internet,” which is to say, consciously created in a milieu where the centrality of the network is assumed. From the changing nature of the image to the circulation of cultural objects, from the politics of participation to new understandings of materiality, the interventions presented under this rubric attempt nothing short of the redefinition of art for the age of the internet."

carol s. (caravan café)'s curator insight, April 4, 10:38 AM

Tout comme le modernisme du XXe siècle a été en grande partie déterminée par la relation entre l'artisanat et les technologies émergentes de la fabrication , des médias , et de l'imagerie à base de lentilles , la condition la plus pressante qui sous-tend la culture contemporaine aujourd'hui, de la pratique artistique et la théorie sociale à la langue quotidienne - pourrait bien être l'omniprésence de l'Internet . Le terme « post- internet " ne se réfère pas à un temps " après " l' internet , mais plutôt à un état d'esprit de l'internet, de penser à la manière du réseau . Dans le contexte de la pratique artistique , post- internet décrit un objet d'art créée avec une conscience des réseaux au sein desquels il existe - de la conception et de la production à la diffusion et à la réception . Bien que la terminologie utilisée pour décrire ces phénomènes est encore et encore naissante en développement dans l'utilisation répandue , " Art Post - Internet » présente une vaste enquête de l'art qui est controversée définie comme « post- Internet ", c'est à dire , consciemment créé dans un milieu où la centralité du réseau est supposé . De la nature changeante de l'image à la circulation des biens culturels , de la politique de la participation à de nouvelles compréhensions de l'importance , les interventions présentées sous ce rien de tentative rubrique courte de la redéfinition de l'art à l'ère de l'Internet .

luiy's curator insight, March 26, 3:14 AM

This week i will be talking about beautiful but also politically-revealing data mapping with Burak Arikan, a New York and Istanbul based artist working with complex networks. Burak runs social, economic, and political issues through an abstract machinery, which generates network maps and algorithmic interfaces and draws up predictions that render inherent power relationships visible, thus discussable. Arikan's software, prints, installations, and performances have been featured in numerous exhibitions internationally. Arikan is the founder of Graph Commons, a platform dedicated to providing "network intelligence" for everyone.

Blogs We Like: J.D. Doria


J.D. Doria's multi-decade career in art has so far been characterized by meticulous complexity. Each project has involved not only multiple media, but a wholly unique layering thereof, and a sense of pure invention. Or, as Doria puts it, “growth:”




Rather than composing, I ‘grow’ my images from the materials, surfaces and mediums I am using. Technology is my organ of apprehension through which I curate the generative capacity of the work. My interest lays in the creative process, in undressing painting from its structural forms, and remaining in contact with its verb.




Doria’s current Petri Dish project is one of the most unique experiments so far. Using glass dishes, a crane-affixed camera, and “different mélanges of liquid colors and materials,” Doria explores valences of “becoming,” the formation of patterns, structures, and lack thereof, over time:




By agency of the materials (colors and mediums) the composition in the Petri dish becomes active and generates chaotic processes, out of which a ‘colony’ of images emerges. This is where the camera and a photographer enter the scene and captures the dynamics in time. Images are then digitally enlarged and enter a process of selection till a set is chosen. Each ‘work’ is composed by a circular image that captures the initial stages of the reaction and by the ‘multitude’ of images extracted from the process.




Like the best big-idea work, Petri Dish offers viewers inspiring and challenging experiences regardless of analytical investment. Though they yield odd and theoretically rich results when thoroughly investigated, each image is, at its simplest/most immanent level, a purely physical entity, something that ultimately reflects as much as it emanates. And so is Doria’s work overall—deeply, laboriously meditative art that offers a full spectrum of aesthetic and philosophical content.


Check out Doria’s main site, Twitter, and Facebook too.

Xaos: Cogitating Ferocities Beauty Is a CatastroPhe

Xaos: Cogitating Ferocities Beauty Is a CatastroPhe | The Aesthetic Ground | Scoop.it
Xaos's insight:

Beauty Is a Ca·tas·tro·Phe

Aesthetics is an art of intervention. It is art because it embodies ‘intersubjectivity’ between a line of history and a future edge. It involves selection (or should we say the selection of consciousness?) and it is entangled with ‘magic’ – the inflation-into-presence of an unformed stuff. It is intervention, as without it, the life of us and of all the rest we generate, would be very, very, repetitious. Intervention rests in the poietic of new distinctions that disrupt the flow of congruent acculturation and enlightens reorientation. It begins with modification and it culminates in the genesis of a new universe, all the way from a first stick of wood to the open blueprint of ourselves. Aesthetics is the long-term project of curating becoming across the changing shores of understanding and technology; (Aesthetic is) the primitive verb that substantially teases events of becoming into fresh dis-continuities of the ca·tas·tro·phe named beauty. The event of becoming is charged with directionality, or otherwise put, Aesthetics is about how, who and what are we transforming into. So let us make it rumble loud and clear – Which origin are we? And what are we the beginning of?
