You are all welcome to the closing event for the exhibit s.t.r.u.k.t.u.r.,
to see the current state of the artists’s work.
Saturday June 5th, 2004, 5-7 PM
at the:artist:network, nyc
s.t.r.u.k.t.u.r. is a critical examination of the underlying principles of
structures in art, culture and communication. The Gallery acts as an interrelated
space, connected like a network node with the local community and the global
network. Each artist creates work based on process and exchange with the general
public, by using the Internet, cell phones or through dialogue in the Gallery,
creating hybrid authorship of the artwork.
Participating artists are Jonah Brucker-Cohen with “Public Desktop”, by using an
application that is dynamically updated, the desktop image transforms into a global
comment-board. Theorists, critics and artists from around the globe are invited to
write comments straight to the desktop in the gallery;
Davis Goldenberg, Ilze Black and Wim Salki with “Dreaming About the Future”, the
artists create a Think Tank in the gallery, visioning the future of art practice in
the year 2030. The gallery will be a place for exchange and ideas in a
participatory process through discussions and workshops;
Jim Costanzo’s “datamap_2004”, by using the Internet to transfer data to the
gallery Costanzo expose how we are all part of the digital global economy and
surveillance. There will be a daily update of the datamap with a comment-board;
Trebor Scholz with “Twenty-Four Dollar Island”, creates a collaborative map of Lower
Manhattan by inviting citizens to contribute their stories to an online database, a
way to expose the history hidden in New York City.
