Commonly considered the next Trillion Dollar Revolution, mobile devices are dividing the way we interact with reality. In an art world intellectually dominated by relational aesthetics, surprisingly few artists are examining this new medium as a platform for performance and experimentation.

In our Age of the Unpaid Intern, mobile apps serve, for many, as an immersive experience—an escape route—even a virtual studio. Akin to a tableau by Hieronymus Bosch, the mobile experience is rife with mesmerizing commotion, momentary pleasures and untapped marvels.  (more…)

Lynn Hershman Leeson: The Agent Ruby Files

 

Since the sixties, San Francisco has been noted for its population of counter cultural miscreants and revolutionary ingenues. Its entrepreneurial economy is seeded by innumerable startups who increase the youth population, boost the regional wealth, and create a new class of aspiring art collectors and artists.

The endemic art scene has grown considerably from this, trading her hippies for hipsters. Properly paired, this collection of artists and entrepreneurs has already spawned some enticing innovations, not the least of which is net art. San Francisco’s unique nexus of tech and art is challenging its rival art capitals with the growing phenomena of net-centric and net-based art.  (more…)

Examining the most successful artist of the 21st Century, and his web presence, informs us of our own deeply held fantasies. It is our artists who define us, who depict our desires — and what better medium than that fantasy factory, the internet? Although more known for his mega-galleries (read: megalomania) than his internet presence, Kinkade is a colorful case of the accidental net artist.  (more…)

The brighter the light, the darker the shadows. This alabaster doll gets the search light treatment and appears to be harmonizing quite amusingly with her own silhouette.  Marie-Clare was spotted at SF MoMA’s Frequency and Volume, Relational Architecture 9 exhibition by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. When asked the reason for her visit, she mentioned that she was researching for her own exhibition at the California-based Crocker Art Museum.
