FOR MOST ARTISTS TODAY, the laptop and phone have already supplanted the studio as primary sites of production. Early signs of this shift were evident in what became known as relational aesthetics, which, in retrospect, seems wrongly defined as a practice in which communal experience became the medium. It is more properly understood, rather, as a capitalist-realist adaptation of art to the experience economy, obviously, but also to the new productive imperative to go mobile,… [read more »]
Jogging was founded by Lauren Christiansen, Tyrone Chang and Brad Troemel in 2008. The blog initially featured a daily flow of readymades sourced from left over art scraps at the gallery the members lived in together. After images were taken of the sculptures they would be discarded or re-used, leaving only a digital photograph behind. In 2009 the blog cut out the majority of its physical production, instead favoring Google Image Searches which could be… [read more »]

In 1999 Nicolas Fernández began to include the new digital media in his output; the web sites You_Left (1999) and Father_Nature (2000) oﬀer viewers a walk of endless possibilities through mazelike sound spaces that are scattered with texts.

The artist’s gesture alters the very texture of the images;… [read more »]

The naked woman in the middle is a sun around which a system revolves: of culture, of business, of living! (It’s impossible to… [read more »]
