JURY STATEMENT
For the last three years, Rhizome and Chronus Art Center (Shanghai) have partnered to present the Prix Net Art, a cash prize that goes to artists who are committed to working online and who represent important directions in contemporary net art practice. In the past, two artists have been awarded, but this year, after much deliberation, the jury—comprising Zhang Ga, Artistic Director of Chronus Art Center, Distinguished Professor at China Central Academy of Fine Arts; Lauren Cornell, Associate Director of Technology Initiatives and Curator at the New Museum; Christiane Paul, Associate Professor in the School of Media Studies at the New School and Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art; and Aria Dean, assistant curator of net art and digital culture at Rhizome—elected to recognize three recipients, each of whom will receive $5,000.

After considering a rich field of candidates nominated by the general public and invited expert nominators, the jury selected two artists and an artist duo who represent differently formulated but intersecting concerns and directions in the field of net art. Read more »

ART PROJECTS

The Dumpster

dumpster.png

The Dumpster is an interactive online visualization that attempts to depict a slice through the romantic lives of American teenagers. Using real postings extracted from millions of online blogs, visitors to the project can surf through tens of thousands of specific romantic relationships in which one person has "dumped" another. The project's graphical tools reveal the astonishing similarities, unique differences, and underlying patterns of these failed relationships, providing both peculiarly analytic and sympathetically intimate perspectives onto the diversity of global romantic pain.

The Dumpster was created by Golan Levin, Kamal Nigam and Jonathan Feinberg and made possible by support from the Whitney Artport, the Tate Online, and Intelliseek. Version 1.0 of the Dumpster was built in Processing and launched on Valentine's day, 2006.

"There was this art website called Hell.com that had no public access. In February ’99 Rhizome subscribers received an invitation and password to see the new exhibition. During the opening we copied the whole show and published it on our website without restrictions. Our action upset Hell.com and lead to a cease-and-desist request. While Hell.com recently ceased to exist, our version remained visible ever since." 0100101110101101.ORG, Copies

we are always waiting for the big
event that will change our lives forever --
not to make our lives a paradise,
but to give us direction, to find out what
our mission is, what is worth struggling for.
we are a nation in search of a frontier,
and without one we are overwhelmed
by anxiety.

Re-move

"The pieces on www.re-move.org are an attempt to articulate mathematical and natural principles below a visual surface in an enjoyable and sometimes playful way. People should be able to get their own ideas about the pieces and involve themselves without having any preconception of how to watch or how to "use" the pieces - that's why there are no instructions or any guidelines. Depending of the used formulas and also depending on who is watching/playing around, the results of the created images and/or sounds will always be different - in that sense, the user can also be seen as an additional random-factor in the code which can help to create a more or less "organic" result."

Expunction: memory is there to deceive.

Expunction.png

Expunction is a project by mobile Internet communicator Igor Štromajer. Between 11 May and 16 June 2011, Štromajer, a pioneer of net art both in Slovenia and worldwide, ritually deleted a number of his classical net art works produced between 1996 and 2007. He expunged one net art project per day, permanently deleting it from his online server, so that the projects are no longer available at the Intima Virtual Base. He deleted 37 net art works altogether, amounting to 3,288 files or 101.72 MB.

A creepy Magibon fan site Magibon.com It claims to have been created by an obsessive fan named Frank and features a grainy black & white video of a masked man clutching at a wall with Magibon projected on it. Some people speculated that Frank and Magibon were part of an elaborate marketing campaign for a Japanese horror movie, but it turned that Frank was just a viral hoax created by a digital media artist named Danung.
