Requiem for a Dream: this is the website for the movie "Reguiem for a Dream". The site is mocking the screaming imagery of commercial websites. At first the visitor is mislead by the commercial interface that seems to fall apart, after that the background info about the movie is presented...
Seppukoo is the new artwork by Les Liens Invisibles. The website is designed to help people commit a symbolic, ritual suicide, killing their virtual identity. The main purpose of the project is to inspire a ludic introspection about using social networks, beginning with the most popular one: Facebook. The site also provide a memorial page on which users can write their last words. In the end, it all turns into a game, as you can score points by inviting your friends to committ a virtual suicide too. Read more »
having obtained identities long ago, they now demand to be typed, spoken, traced, heard, and related to in specific ways. and yet, for all their demands, they only exist as reflections of human handwriting and visual echoes of muscles and air working in concert to give them life as sound waves.
these two pieces examine some of these relationships and how we affect them as we become a part of the process. as in life, the experience of them will be unique each time they are opened, so if you are dissatisfied with a given configuration, feel free to destroy the window and try again.

Reflection-concept about content/no-content:
A random gallery of preloaders that announces the data-loading of the site no-content.org. It is, simultaneously, an aesthetic investigation on the creation of reactive-interactive objects and random audio surroundings, within the boundaries of minimum bytes possible.
Play-lets is a project for the web by Conor McGarrigle which explores the structure and nature of memory. It is based on the writings of psychologist August Klein and on the deconstructed memories of artist Arthur X. Doyle.
Playlets "are mini episodes which form the structure of memory, they act like navigation aids for the brain with each one pointing to memories from a specific period of time, enabling the mind to recall memories in a time context." August Klein.
The project is designed to encourage exploration, there are 25+ pages with no beginning, middle or end, but there is a journey. There are many hidden links and many different ways to navigate through the work.

. Launch The NetArtizens Project or Launch NetArtizens Open Online Exhibition
In the age of social media, our conversations, gossip, discourses, research, decision making, organizational and artistic work are “intertwingled” (to use Ted Nelson’s playful term) with exponentially exploding repositories of media and information. Nowadays, our everyday communications are embedded with the metadata of search querys, hyperlinks, hashtags and usernames. To the extent that we practice these new techniques of “social taxonomy,” how can we use them to examine and dissect our individual and collective net behaviors?
During the month of March 2015, The NetArtizens Project was conducted as a social experiment in discourse and artistic production across 3 network channels: the NetBehaviours Mailing List, Twitter @NetArtizens, and the 0P3NR3P0.net open database repository for media art. Over 75 artists have contributed so far to the NetArtizens Open Online Exhibition at 0P3NR3P0.net, an evolving showcase of online works submitted between March 2 and April 2, 2015.
My Desktop Life is a new tool made to create online in a very free and personal way. It’s now on view in Art On Your Screen in ZKM Karlsruhe, who initially sponsored its creation.
With my new tool I could make several short films entirely created in a browser and displayed inside a browser. Here you can watch a creation I made called “This is home”.
Watch it, it’s seven minutes long and if you want to know how it’s made, follow my instructions. Notice on the left-hand top corner a very small check box, click on it, and see the film editor at work. Don’t hesitate to play with it and modify whatever you want in order to understand the functioning. This prototype of an online editor is an opening for new opportunities of creations inside a browser. I’m currently working on the interface that will let user create with the use of the same tool as mine. Next year, you will hear more about it. So stay tuned.
With MyDesktopLife, it is just the beginning of a long story of online creation.

The internet is more than just a canvas, medium or publishing platform for art. The internet is a system that links human and machine intelligence to produce politics, economics, culture, and subjectivities. To make "internet art" is to intervene in, or participate mindfully in, these processes. Read more »
Launch Windows 93 From Jankenpopp and Zombectro, Windows 93: a playfully surreal online simulator of a computer operating system that is aesthetically similar to Windows 95. The in-browser OS features solitaire, a virtual desktop girl, infuriating pop-up windows that constantly multiply, a musical defrag utility.
Geoffrey Lillemon (1981 USA) brings a classic romantic painting and drawing style to technology to reinterpret artistic practice. As one of the leading artists of the Net Art Movement, Lillemon has consistently foregrounded the interplay between the digital and physical world in his work, blending the traditional mediums with interactive animation that responds to human touch, brainwaves, and even heartbeats. Using various art forms, from mixed and moving media to literature and soundscapes to classic portraiture, he creates works of hallucinatory poetry that reach into the infinite depths of the subconscious where the real and the imaginary interact. Lillemon has exhibited internationally as Oculart, including being the Invite d'Honneur at the Centre Pompidou, was a founding member of studio Champagne Valentine, and is currently an artist in residence at Random, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Currently you are developing a concept to contextualise Internet-based Art by recording users in front of their screens as they interact with the artwork, which is then documented. This seems to offer a brilliant way to shift the focus from the technological condition of Internet-based Art to its use in everyday culture—can you explain the aims of this project more in detail?
