b>The Eternal Internet Brotherhood. Vernissage TV



http://vernissage.tv/blog/2013/05/17/the-eternal-internet-brotherhood-2013-xilitla-mexico-remix/

The Eternal Internet Brotherhood is a cooperative camp between artists, curators and writers. The 1st Eternal Internet Brotherhood took place on Anafi, an island located on the edge of the Cyclades, used in ancient times as an “interface” for mythological adventures. The 2nd Eternal Internet Brotherhood took place in April 2013 in Xilitla, Mexico. Among the participants were Hans Ulrich Obrist, Ceci Moss, Angelo Plessas, Jacinto Astiazarán, among others.

Organizer Angelo Plessas describes the Eternal Internet Brotherhood as an experiment and a situation: “During the Eternal Internet Brothehood we all stay and work closely in a common mental and/or physical environment, and we organically create new concepts swarmed by data, dreams, feelings, knowledge, visions and sounds.”
The Eternal Internet Brotherhood 2013 was organized and curated by Angelo Plessas and Mirko de Lisi (assistant curator). Jacinto Astiazarán compiled in situ footage of the weeklong event with other participants’ online contributions, which consisted of audio recordings, texts, 3D models and website projects to create this video for VernissageTV.

What we call sculpture. I'm curating an exhibition at Cerma



View exhibition. Online now!

"what we call sculpture" focuses on the possibilities of sculpture through the use of digital tools in the context of Internet and the exhibition possibilities of the online medium.

Since the advent of video games and the Internet, the notion of actual physical space has been complemented by the existence of virtual spaces, built using code and 3D software where graphics you can see on the screen not only occupy a physical space as storage on a hard disk, but through contemplation or interaction with simulated spaces we can perceive aspects as size, material and volume, all typical of traditional sculpture.

From Mario Bros for Nintendo 64 in the entertainment industry, through social networks like Second Life, to come up with new ways in which we perceive the real world using simulators such as Google Earth, the products generated by 3D software tools have changed dramatically shaped the way we relate and understand the real space, so much so, that an architect can now recognize the version of AutoCad with which a building is designed.

What we call sculpture is a collection of works that use sculpture procedures, installation, intervention, etc. as a means of digital experimentation to develop artistic strategies online., featuring works from Chris Timms, Francoise Gamma, Kareem Lotfy and Manuel Fernández

Glitch Aesthetic Exhibition



On Friday, April 6, from 7:00 to 10:00 PM Glitch work by six international digital artists will be on display. Artists include: Kim Asendorf , Giselle Beiguelman, Manuel Fernández, Rosa Menkman, Jimmy Joe Roche, and Rick Silva.

Counterpath website

Facebook event

The glitch aesthetic is an aesthetic of error. The distortion of visual and audio data by the machines meant to present this data clearly is the basis of glitch. Feedback, pixelation, color distortions, and static mark the works presented in this exhibit. Yet despite the often unappealing effect of glitching in our daily interactions with computers, cell phones, and televisions, these artists have found that the seemingly random alterations made by distortion can render banal imagery beautiful, make beautiful imagery strange. With a wide variety of techniques, from modifying analogue equipment to intentionally produce glitched images to using 3-D composition and rendering software to produce realistic-yet-impossible environments, these glitch artists are engaging with technology to question its role in how we see and hear the world.

Decenter. An exhibition on the centenary of the 1913 Armory exhibiton



My work Provisional Landscape is included in this show.

February 17 – April 7, 2013
Curated by Andrianna Campbell and Daniel S. Palmer
Abrons Art Center. 466 Grand Street New York, NY

View the digital exhibition

In the 1913 Armory Show, the Association of American Painters and Sculptors endeavored to showcase the “New Spirit” of modern art. On its 100th anniversary, we will celebrate the Cubist paintings and sculptures in its galleries with an exhibition curated by Andrianna Campbell and Daniel S. Palmer featuring 27 contemporary artists at Henry Street Settlement’s Abrons Arts Center (466 Grand St, NYC).

Their artworks explore changes in perception precipitated by our digital age, and closely parallel the cubist vernacular of fragmentation, non-linearity, simultaneity, and decenteredness.

Our exhibition poses the question: What is the legacy of Cubism in the hundred years since the Armory Show’s radical display of modern European and American art, and especially, how has this become relevant again in our digital age? The show will exhibit a group of artworks in the gallery, and also feature a corresponding internet component of digital works in an online gallery, which have been organized based on a system of artists inviting other artists whose work they admire (shown in black boxes, linked to the artists who have invited them).

This digital portion of the exhibition will grow in a process that highlights the diversity and expansiveness of the 1913 show’s legacy as it relates to our world today.

Manuel Fernandez is exploring the machine vision aesthetic in a compelling way in his ongoing series of GIFs. His GIFs trace the futile attempt of a facial recognition to detect a friendly face in a variety of contrary subject, like a pigeon and futuristic dildo (pictured).

Cafe INTERNET NAVIG@TOR,
Igielna 14,
50-001 Wrocław,
Poland.
November 17th 6pm – 9pm. 2012

Transfer 3D SPEED SHOW will explore the episodic ideological background as well as trends of art that refer to the issues of three-dimensionality and interactivity. We are reviewing trends that are emerging now, and explore the evolution of three-dimensional object creation. Currently, we are at a pivotal moment where a new world of art is closer to the foundations set by virtual reality. The invited artists dissect these issues and experiment in various techniques with new technological possibilities offered to us by the Internet we have today.

Just as the ‘Z-buffer’ shows the distance from the observer, Transfer3D SPEED SHOW will present a picture of the observed trends and relationships in the net art that widely employs the medium of 3D design.

Categories which will be presented at the show: Real 3D, Magic 3D, Fake 3D, Dirty 3D, Glitch 3D, Anti 3D, Pseudo 3D, Augmented 3D, 3D Ready and 2.5 D

Participating Artists:

The exhibition format is free and can be applied by anyone at any place.

Apache Projects for The Eternal Internet Brotherhood organized by Angelo Plessas. Slideshow curated by Nate Hitchcock in Anafi island. Greece. 2012




The Eternal Internet Brotherhood is an initiative for a 5 day collaborative camp. It is a program of holidays featuring activities and events that will take place between the 9th to the 15th of August 2012 on the greek island of Anafi. This aegean island is located on the south-east edge of the Cycladic cluster and can be reached only by boat.

This initiative will host artists, curators, writers and friends working on or dealing with the vast landscape of internet culture. This is an international group, coming from different parts of the world but collectively part of a compact online community who believe that the creative integration of the offline and online modes of well-being can spark a liberated intellectual evolution and reveal an all-union of disciplines. I invited people whose work expands notions of communication, distribution, dissemination, compression and simultaneity.

The participants will evaluate and activate ideas of deeper spiritual virtuality, explore and invent new visual codes and behavoural modes, using the island itself as an interface: a new consciousness of time and space. We aspire also to compare Internet social conventions to actual space, minimizing or maximizing the intervention of technology.

Participants are free to realize their projects in any medium: from a workshop to a lecture to a performance to an installation to a video to a website to an mp3, anywhere on the island: by the beach, by the bar, underwater, in the monastery.

The Eternal Internet Brotherhood will provide a “space” of total intellectual liberty and will act as a post-privacy outpost. We will escape from the visual provincialism of technology within which we now live in a meta-internet corporeal idyllic context

#0000FF Line#1



#0000FF Gallery is announcing its grand opening, July 26, with #0000FF Line #1, the first installment of a micro-exhibition thematic series featuring the work of Anthony Antonellis, Kim Asendorf, Manuel Fernández & Hugo Scibetta. Each artist will present a single piece inspired by and paying tribute to the 'Blue Aesthetic'.

The necessity for aesthetic interaction between users and online interfaces was evident ever since the appearance of the first social network sites. Our contribution, wheter it is an outcome of an online curatorial process or simply them alterations to satisfy our personal taste, has prove to be a vital factor for the success of any new media. By being a Facebook Art Gallery, #0000FF's goal is to enhance facebook users' visual experience and challenge the network's limitations by addressing aesthetic, social and political issues.

Two Hundred and Sixteen Colors at Galería Adriana Suárez review. Spanish art magazine El Cuaderno




English text (Google translate):

An exquisite ghost.
Manuel Fernandez recorded in Two hundred and sixteen colors many keys to a uncertain time.

The philosophy of Descartes, with its search for a new source and foundation for human reason, also often seen as the starting point of an era entire historical: modernity.

His geometrical method to represent a reference system, the Cartesian coordinates, is in once the origin of analytic geometry mathematician and excellent emblem of this desire to reshape the world and thought from a new order that has characterized half a millennium of west history.

With that reference in the background, Two hundred and sixteen colors, the project that Manuel Fernandez (Malaga, 1977) presented in Adriana Suarez Gallery, might well regarded as representing a multimedia art reality that comes from modernity, but, as this time can no longer be the currency.

Two hundred and sixteen colors is fundamentally a plastic representation operates by collaborative procedures. Your tool Internet is (or, more specifically, an online application called twohundredansixteencolors.com); their subject, the 216 8-bit color used in the preparation of web pages, its structure, rectangular grid of 18 × 12 squares colored, and their supports, different: the graph of the lattice colored as can be seen in the project website, a projection real-time graph of the same on a gallery wall, a large canvas on which is reproduced by a state fingerprint grid and a series of work graph based on that same state.

But most peculiar of Two hundred and sixteen colors is collective authorship fragmentary random and open. As in a massive exquisite corpse, making Using the online tool, can select either at will one of the locations available on the grid and to award a color using the same which is used to mechanically engage in any social network. A from each entire grid, Manuel Fernandez will generate the pieces that complete the project and materialize it through different plastics and in different languages degrees.

True to the conceptual rigor of stock who has exhibited throughout his career and interest in exploring new mechanisms of reproduction information, Fernandez posed in the most neat and visually seductive beam reflections of draft, completely relevant: the ambiguous tangible or intangible nature of artistic work, the atomization of authorship and reproducibility, the ability of social networks users to generate meanings and effects outside, the renewal of the world's representation systems.

In the latter sense, it especially suggestive check the mode in which the tenets of some edge historical (constructivism, Suprematism, the geometric abstraction), so stained at the time of political overtones, spiritual and even esoteric and mystical, have become a code universal and everyday, as at the time was, for example, with the prospect. O perhaps language itself.

The standard color palette on the Internet, pixelized configuration of Figures we see for hours each
day on computer screens and proportions including those gird those figures. Formats parts Two hundred and sixteen colors have the same relationship as those used in the various screen resolutions of PC proportions which come something like the golden ratio to the eye of the digital age.

But perhaps the most suggestive is randomly in the grid view form of a colored emblematize this time and no moderno in such an eloquent Cartesian coordinates as included modernity.

Two hundred and sixteen colors detected and registered with the geometric rigor indeterminate and perhaps spectral nature of this historic moment. In that sense, rather than a Exquisite Corpse is a ghost exquisite.

#D at Bronx Art Space




#D
Bronx Art Space
23 June- 7 July 2012
Opening reception 06/23/12 @7PM

#D is a group exhibition comprised of sculpture and 3D based digital works that address three dimensionality, and in conjunction attempt to challenge the flexibility of medium categorization. Invaliding the necessity to categorize, an action that often impairs further development by isolating relevant styles and artists into high and low brow, the exhibition also reconciles virtual and physical space, celebrating the interchangeable qualities of both approaches.

The exhibition is curated by Giselle Zatonyl and the participating artists are:

Anthony Antonellis
Bhakti Baxter
Ryan Estep
Manuel Fernández
Jessica Gispert
Emilio Gomariz
Rollin Leonard
Sara Ludy
Malgosia Woźnica (V5MT)
Lorna Mills
Eva Papamargariti

On Kawara Time Machine at Caesura Gallery




"On Kawara Time Machine", 2011/Ongoing, Website, HTML, javascript, CSS

In On Kawara Time Machine the viewer is given a heightened awareness of death and of the passage of time.

A javascript counter automates the On Kawara time based works from the beginning of "Date paintings" on January 4, 1966, to the actual date checked in the operating system clock. The CSS code produces the look of the paintings, using white futura bold typography on a black background.

The project will be completed on the date of On Kawara's death, at which time a new variable will be added to the code to make the counter end on that day.
