Land Lines

Submitted by net-art on Sat, 09/02/2017 - 18:33

Satellite images provide a wealth of visual data from which we can visualize in interesting ways. Land Lines is an experiment that lets you explore Google Earth satellite imagery through gesture. “Draw” to find satellite images that match your every line; “Drag” to create an infinite line of connected rivers, highways and coastlines.

Using a combination of machine learning, optimized algorithms, and graphics card power, the experiment is able to run efficiently on your phone’s web browser without a need for backend servers.

Submitted by net-art on Mon, 04/24/2017 - 13:13

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.

Launch: _MON3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US @ M0US310n.net
happening and curation by Vasily Zaitsev
Online 2.0 happening & exhibition from M0US310n.net featuring Digital & Net.Art on the subject of Money & Error, put together by an dead snipper as anonymous curator "Vasily Zaitsev":

With an unexpected and play-based proposal, the project is leaded and curated by the fake figure of a World War II Russian sniper. MON3Y.us is conceived as a 2.0 happening that using a Facebook public event format, invites people in general and digital artists in particular, to be part of an artistic game in order to reflect on art and money as a way of social exchange beyond their exchange value.

"M0N3Y AS AN 3RRROR | MON3Y.US" proposes to establish connections, dialogues, and new insights into the contemporary art scene around the general topic of MONEY. Around 70 international artists selected with various aesthetic and conceptual approaches who work in fields such as Digital Art, Net.Art , New Media, Interactive Art , Multimedia, JavaScript, Glitch, Video, Online Performance, Animated GIF, and Digital Image.

M0us310n.net is an independent initiative to promote and support Net.Art & Digital Art.

Catalog of Internet Artists Clubs

Submitted by net-art on Sat, 04/23/2016 - 11:28

Websites in the catalog are categorized as either surf clubs, art clubs, or related sites. The term surf club originated from the Nasty Nets group blog tagline "Internet Surfing Club," and is often used to describe group artist blogs where the prevailing subject is internet culture and aesthetics and where lines are blurred between the roles of artist, curator, and archivist.
