Just like last year, I’m organizing a SPEED SHOW next Thursday, July 21st, in Berlin. A SPEED SHOW is an exhibition format developed by Aram Bartholl.

The basic idea of this exhibition format is to create a gallery like opening situation for browser based internet art in a public cyber-cafe / internet-shop for one night. The exhibition format is free and can be applied by anyone at any place.

The titel of this years SPEED SHOW is “YOUR BROWSER IS MY KINGDOM”. There won’t be just animated gifs, but all kinds of different browser artworks.

So I invite you all to come and bring you friends and your friends’ friends!
Here are the details for the SPEED SHOW:

Thursday 21th of July 2011, 20:00 – 23:00
or@nien net
Oranienstrasse 185, Berlin

You can also rsvp for this event on Facebook.

Absolut Net.Art

How would an Absolut Vodka ad made by an net.artist look like when they’re imitating the styles of other net.artists? That’s what Eryk Salvaggio asked himself and some net.artists. Thanks to Rhizome, this project Absolut Net.Art from 2001 is preserved for us to enjoy. Here are 3 of my favorites.

3 Dreams of Black

May 13th, 2011

3 Dreams of Black” is a new interactive film directed by Chris Milk for the song “Black” by ROME, a music project by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi featuring Jack White & Norah Jones. The project is a Chrome Experiment that showcases some of the latest web technologies like WebGL in modern browsers like Google Chrome.
Not only can you interact with video, you can also add your own items to the dream or see what others have build. For those of you who want to know the technical details: this page will keep you busy for a while. The model view and the demos are just as impressive.
Aaron Koblin was the creative director of this project and Mr.doob the technical director and of course a bunch of really talented people. You might also want to check out “The Wilderness Downtown“, a project with many people who were also involved in this one.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been that blown away by a web technology. So if you have the latest version of Google Chrome installed and a pretty decent graphicscard, go ahead and be …

Browser Abstract

March 30th, 2011

The digital canvas is my canvas of choice. Kim Si Nae thinks so too and made a series of Browser Abstracts. The artworks are made inside a web browser, java applets are loaded inside frames. They aren’t just static compositions but each frame flickers nervously. You can see 2 examples here.

Flitser.org is probably one of the coolest websites I’ve seen lately. It’s basically a website with a lot of photos of people taking pictures of themselves in a mirror while using the flash of the camera. The interesting part is that the center of the flashlight follows your mouse pointer. There’re also a few automated animations and one interactive one called “Click, Drag, Throw”. It’s a project made by Conditional Design.
