Invitation to see and hear:

1) The award-winning net art work
/ source / (postfactual), 2017

Synopsis: In Timo Kahlen’s new interactive net art work / source / (postfactual) , 2017 - just awarded an Honorary Mention at the Junge Akademie’s and ZKM’s prize question “What’s the Net Listening To ?” (Was hört das Netz ?) - the viewer is invited to search for reliable sources, for valid ‘facts’ , nodes and information on the internet.

A seemingly void, monochrome white surface is all it shows; and frustrates the viewer with a mouse cursor, which is difficult to locate, to control and direct, as isolated potential ‘facts’ pop up in interaction with the cursor : appearing but distorted, head-over and uncomfortably remote, as if projected onto the reverse side of the computer screen. Accumulating alternative facts are accompanied by outbursts of sound and bustle, only to be quenched and extinguished shortly afterwards. Read more »

- an avatar manifesto - by Kara Gut

15/04/2017 - 15/05/2017

Wayshrines I, II, & III (an avatar manifesto) is a combination of appropriated media, screen recordings, and performance in digital environments in which the avatar exists as a replacement for the physical being. Wayshrines attempts to overturn power structures that exist within a web-based reality by appropriating and reinterpreting virtual representations. The work calls into question the alternative moral code that exists when confronting the immortal digital body.



Dot.Art is is an exhibition and events programme presenting artworks from the first wave of Net.Art alongside more recent projects produced since the rise of web 2.0, social networks and easily accessible search engines.

When Inside the White Cube first appeared in Artforum in 1976, its impact was immediate. Without a doubt, O'Doherty was the first to explicitly confront a particular crisis in postwar art as he sought to examine the assumptions on which the modern commercial and museum gallery was based.

Concerned with the complex and sophisticated relationship between economics, social context, and aesthetics as represented in the contested space of the art gallery, he raises the question of how artists must construe their work in relation to the gallery space and system.

But, what happens nowadays when this relationship takes place between the post-modern commercial and museum gallery and Digital Art?

Despite the fact that both Digital Art and have the ability to dissolve this dependence, does it seem that it still survives as a decisive factor in their future development, and social reception?

Furthermore, what can Digital Art & do inside the White Cube?

Taking this into account, Inside the | An Exhibition Online Gallery seeks for digital works that deal with a wide range of issues in connection with this theme by taking the Virtual Whit3 Cube as an essential part of the submitted piece.


=== Next MEDIA ART HISTORIES Conference 2015 in MONTREAL ! ===

We are pleased to officially announce that the next MEDIA ART HISTORIES
Conference will be held in MONTREAL, November 2015.

"RE-CREATE: Theories, Methods and Practices of Research and Creation in the Histories of Media Arts and Sciences" will address the central question of what theories, methodologies and techniques can be used tounderstand past, present and indeed, future paradigms of creative material practice involving technologies within research contexts from ahistorical and critical point of view. This is a timely question for theMAH conferences as the issue of how material based practices withintechnical culture create new knowledge has been explicit and central tothe historical roots of media art, design, science and technology.

After Riga 2013 this fall, Liverpool 2011, Melbourne 2009, Berlin 2007 and Banff 2005, the Media Art Histories board is pleased to grant the 10th Anniversary conference to Montreal. RE-CREATE will be hosted by the Hexagram Centre for Research-Creation in Media Art and Technology at Concordia University and the UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal) incollaboration with McGill University (Department of Art History and Communication Studies; Media@McGill; * CIRMMT-Center forInterdisciplinary Research in Music and Media Technology).

Artists are invited to submit works that take on the risks of innovation, inquiry and imagination, using original observations, contemporary technologies and procedures in the process of creating inventive forms, interpreting the present and revising the notion of the future (which no longer seems to be a clearly defined project).

Sound Tableaus - Interactive Surround Sound Compositions for Headphones @

A sound tableau is an interactive surround sound composition that allows you to control the sounds you hear with, in this case, your mouse. The tableau has a defined rectangular area on the page, like a canvas, that is populated by sound objects and sound spaces. Each is different, with a variety of moods ranging from more musical to abstract.

You'll find a video tutorial and description on the home page:

More background and direct links to the sound tableaus:



Who owns silence? On the surface, this question seems as absurd as asking who owns sunshine. Yet, the sounds and music that surround us consist largely of silence; in the gaps between the notes to the quiet at the beginning and ending of recordings to recordings that contain nothing but silence alone. It is on the latter that Tunedeaf addresses.

Tunedeaf is an imitation of Apple’s iTunes website where specific sound files, encoded as high quality .wav files are available for download free of charge and copy protection. All the files posted on Tunedeaf are available from iTunes at their standard rate of $.99 per track. What all these files have in common is that they consist entirely of total silence. This material is available free of charge, in the hopes that it will inspire dialogue concerning the nature of ownership; if the ownership of silence seems absurd, is the ownership of sound not also equally as illogical?

Passing Through

Passing Through is a piece that is interactive and involves text, images and sounds. Created entirely by the artist Alexander Mouton in 2010, the work entails a linear nocturnal amble that juxtaposes still images with sounds of movement, unpopulated city locations with overheard conversations from the self same empty spaces. Through the juxtapositions of media there is a social critique of societal norms --whether of an institutional nature or pertaining to individual disengagement-- while simultaneously celebrating the beauty of both the natural and man made world. All of the images have links within them to move through the spaces and some have text.  Passing Through is best experienced with headphones or through a quality audio....

Aleph Null: interactive generative art with the HTML 5 canvas tag

Aleph Null makes color music. Colors are tones. Musical notes are tones. Music is tones moving in time. Aleph Null makes changing color tones move in time. There is no audio.

Aleph Null is an instrument of color music. And an art work. It'll play on it's own. But it profits immensely from a human player interceding continually. It's interactive online art.

Controlling_Connectivity (online performance)

Art Laboratory Berlin is pleased to invite you to participate in the online performance art piece and six week exhibition Controlling_Connectivity, by the Berlin based Australian artist Gretta Louw.

This project is interested in exploring the boundaries of the unconscious under today’s radically altered perception of time - and the role technology plays in this. The project combines the traditions of performance art, installation and video art with technology and psychology.

The artist plans to do a ten day on-site performance (isolated in the gallery space, using technological interfaces to be in contact 24/7 with the outside world) and display documentation in the subsequent exhibition. The focus will be on the notion of connectivity in relation to technology, the internet and social media.  During the performance the artist will be constantly available for online interaction with the public over a multitude of platforms. There will also be a number of special events such as web casts and interviews.. 
Selected events during the performance (CET= Berlin time):

02.11. 2011 - 12-13 hrs GMT (13-14 CET): google + hang out to mark the start of the performance.
03.11. 2011 - 19-21 hrs, CET: 30th birthday party online (google + hangout, twitter, facebook, skype). Read more »

Dérive, networked interactive installation by François Quévillon, 2011-ongoing.

Dérive is a networked interactive installation that invites the public to explore 3D models of urban spaces that are transformed according to environmental data collected in real time on the Web. The installation is a work in progress that features 3D point clouds of various locations on Earth that are created by the use of photogrammetry and geomatic data. Information about local envrionmental conditions are transposed to the point clouds in order to visualize them : Point color defined by temperature and cloudiness, size by the local time related to sunrise and sunset, depth of field effect related to visibility, displacement depending on wind direction and velocity, etc. A video tracking interface enables the public to interact with a large scale projection.

In a time where the reality of urban territories hybridizes with the digital world, the installation uses fluctuating data provided by the network to translate the development of environmental, meteorological and astronomical phenomena affecting the locations shown at the moment of the public's experience. Connecting the actual and the virtual, Dérive inquires the phenomenology of mixed realities and probes into the changing nature of our perception and representation of the world.

Google, One Year Performance

Since January 1, 2011, Interface Artist Johannes P Osterhoff publishes all of his search queries with Google in a One-year Performance called “Google”.

The term One-year Performance has been coined in the 1970s by Tehching Hsieh. Of his own free will, Hsieh spent one year captured in a cage, punched a time clock every hour on the hour for one year, or spent one year entirely outside of any building.

Osterhoff updates the genre One-Year Performance and takes it into the context of “post-privacy” and the domain of modern information retrieval.

How Does It Work?

“Each time, I perform a search with Google, this search immediately is published online.”

Most queries are tracked by a modified dictionary plug-in. When Osterhoff enters a search word into the search bar of his browser, this search is tracked by a PHP script and sent to a modified blog software. On this page, the public list of search results immediately is updated.

In case he enters a search from the various Google web sites, searches from the web, image, video, maps, news, shopping and scholar sections are tracked by a browser extension. In case he refines searches with Google Instant, this extension publishes all searches that are confirmed by pressing enter. Read more »

The Pietro Cannata's blackboard

“The Pietro Cannata's blackboard” is a version of a “Jackson Pollock” using the Pietro Cannata's style, in which it is recalled the anti-art performance of Cannata, adding value to his action and by this way positioning him in art history. “The Pietro Cannata's blackboard” it is also an invitation to every viewer to transgress and being part at completing the Pollock's work.
