The Future of Art

MYJ_1110_ 022

Nice article by Ossian Ward: The Future of Art

“And yet, it was the impact of the digital age (despite the initial shrug of the Millennium Bug) that would come to define that early era of the 21st century. Art was not immune from this epochal shift and while you might not associate the early burst of internet art with any real revolution – given that the original so-called “” phenomenon had arguably ended in 2000, when it was included in the Whitney Biennial and so effectively institutionalised and somehow neutered – the seeds of that movement would nevertheless grow swiftly and begin to colonise the wider art world.”

We’re part of this exhib opening tonight at Kunsthalle Kiel: Old School – Anachronism in Contemporary Art, where we’re showing Rot and Freedom, inside an unfinished wooden room, so the photo above is not of the box under construction but it’s the actual finished thing. BTW, very excited to be in a show together with Taryn Simon.

biennalepy antivirus code

Just received this great email about our work (2001):

“Recently I downloaded and executed in my computer. It infected several Python files of projects I was working on.  To revert them to the original state I wrote a sort of antivirus based on the original It is a rather simple modification of the original script, changing the name and behavior of some of the original functions of the script. I had a lot of fun writing and testing it. I was some kind of  ‘Erased de Kooning Drawing’ of one of my favorite software art works.”

If you are curious you can get here, remember that your computer must be infected!
