2010 Artcontext Annual Review

In a year of junk shots and great recession, there is still the Artcontext. It was a year to explore physical media and I even curated a show. But these projects are still connected to online media, as usual.

The first year of the activity of visiting artists who made "Artistic Licenses" was captured in this time time-lapse video, exhibited as shown here in New York City.

[C-Hold Control]   ©-Hold Control was exhibited at Watermans Art Centre in London as part of the Unleashed Devices exhibition, which featured electronics experiments and quirky high-tech art. The spigot shown here affected a scrolling flow of pirate graphics, downloaded with file sharing software. The work provoked a number of interpretations related to the freedom of the networks — a timely subject in the wake of the U.S. Federal Communication Commission's retreat from Net Neutrality.

Power Cycle addresses sustainable energy. In recent years, some industrialized countries like Germany and the Netherlands have made a more substantial commitment to producing renewable energy that doesn't emit greenhouse gases. Like much of the work of Transnational Temps, this video aims to open up a space in the cultural sphere for reflection about ecological crises that we, collectively, are failing to fix.
