Thinking About The New Aesthetic and Art in the Digital Space | updownacross

Thinking About The New Aesthetic and Art in the Digital Space | updownacross | art, etc. | Scoop.it

Some buzzwords I’ve been coming across on the internets lately specifically pertaining to art include: The New Aesthetic, GIF art, social media art, and the teen-girl Tumblr aesthetic. The world-renowned online art blogzine Hyperallergic is mainly responsible for stirring these mind-melding conversations and made we curious about not only trying to figure out the difference between art online vs. offline but how in becomes more or less valuable aesthetically, art historically, and economically. It also made me wonder how the artist, the viewer, the collector, and the critic respond differentially using what set of values to determine a painting on a wall more or less “better” than a digital collage.

 

In an article titled Selling Out: The Impact of Corporate Social Media Space on Art, Kyle asks if I can imagine ads being sold on a painting by a famous painter. This question redefines the role of the viewer to that of an audience and the painting to that of a consumable, marketable product.

 

Now, as someone who graduated from a mediocre public university with a BA in art history who trolled away anonymously as a Chelsea gallerina and have contributed to building a community platform for emerging artists thru events like open studios, I can fairly say I know my way around the vagaries of the art world. In addition, as someone who has worked social media, community management, and marketing positions for various startups and companies that nobody knows about I can fairly say I know what people want, both from the consumer side and the corporate/company/brand/talent side.

 

These well-rounded experiences aside I don’t know what the HELL is going on with digital art and how it influences the way we as viewers, consumers, the general public and online consumers comprehend the absurd and disturbing images and interactions emerging out of the internet.

Code Art at the Intersection of Data, Space, and Time | HyperAllergic

Code Art at the Intersection of Data, Space, and Time | HyperAllergic | art, etc. | Scoop.it

Lisa Gwillam and Ray Sweeten form the code-art creating duo DataSpaceTime. Engaging in the aesthetics, the politics, and various undersides of contemporary backend technology, their pieces break down digital images, investigate how visual data interacts with other visual data, and look at how new technologies play with old ones. Their work also demonstrates how coding can be a form of artistic control and freedom. In 2011, they launched their first project, a succession of large-scale QR code-based portrait paintings of iconic people and objects like Hosni Mubarak, or Carpaccio’s “Portrait of a Young Woman.” The QR codes that form the portrait components each hold their own bit of information–the results of a single internet search, for instance–and work in concert with a proprietary app, which after giving over the necessary permissions, and downloading, unlocks the data for the user. ....
