Me @ the New Museum of Contemporary Art
I'm currently in a show called Rhizome Artbase 101, at the New Museum of Contemporary Art. They've included my American Idol Audition Training Blog and a translated version of it on a custom iPod (a.k.a. moPod!). The show is up through Sept 10. Here's an excerpt from the press release:
Rhizome ArtBase 101 surveys salient themes in Internet-based art making, a practice that has flourished in the past ten years. [….] The 40 works selected for the New Museum exhibition are outstanding examples culled from the [Rhizome] ArtBase and grouped by ten unifying themes: Dirt Style, Net Cinema, Games, E-Commerce, Data Visualization and Databases, Online Celebrity, Public Space, Software Art, Cyberfeminism and Early Net.Art. Rhizome ArtBase 101 includes seminal pieces by early practitioners such as Alexei Shulgin’s Desktop Is (1997) and Heath Bunting’s _readme (1998), as well as projects by some of the most pioneering emerging talents working in the field today, such as Marisa Olson, Cory Arcangel and Paper Rad.
