    Not Yet Titled
    ​This was a live performance where I watched TV in NYC, and broadcast it live to the Western Front in Vancouver (via Skype).I also had a glass of white wine somewhere along the way. Yes, that is Erin Brockovich in the still above. The idea here was to do just whatever I would have been doing anyway, except broadcast it across North America to an audience - the ultimate low stress / stay at home performance. - See more at: http://www.coryarcangel.com/things-i-made/not-yet-titled#sthash.CsDH6VVX.dpuf

  • Get Lost Inside An Endless Loop On Magic-Ring.net
    By Emerson Rosenthal — Apr 17 2012

    Screenshot from Amandine Ansart’s Odeladelo.

    In 1994, early internet archivist and researcher Denis Howe created EUROPa (Expanding Unidirectional Ring Of Pages), the first example of what internet pioneers would come to know as a webring, an enclosed community of websites organized in a circular structure around a certain theme.

    While webrings peaked around 1998 with the niche-popularity of WebRing.com, the idea would exist today as little more than an artifact of what a few .net art historians might call Web 1.0… if not for the nostalgic efforts of a burgeoning group of French net artists.

    From the Magic Ring central website, “The magic ring is a collection of artists’ websites linked together in a circular structure which is totally decentered and transparent […] we have decided to breathe new life into this format and rethink its interface in a radically different way.”
    And radically different it is: boasting interactive projects from premiere GIF artist Francoise Gamma to educator, net, and installation artist Etienne Cliquet, the Magic Ring is a wistful homage to early internet archiving… that just so happens to feature really dope, exclusive net art in a digi-ontological sphere (pun totally intended).

    So while your cursor circumnavigates the imaginary magic circle that allows you access to each page, take a brief moment to reminisce upon all the ones and zeroes that have fallen by the wayside. We’ll miss you, WebRings, GeoCities, and Internet Explorer… Now onto something new!

  • GIF artist Francoise Gamma
    Francoise Gamma

    The animated .gif has certainly carved out its place in the internet community as an easily-digested piece of media; it quickly delivers a set of images to create a sequence, often on an endless loop. Blogging communities have popularized this format because of its ability to isolate brief, poetic moments in longer film or video files. But Francoise Gamma’s 3D renderings threaten the .gif’s function as a more playful web phenomenon. These animations are odd and uncanny, giving the highly-used animated .gif new — perhaps darker — potential as an experimental art medium.

  • Taiwan 2.0: Broadcasting The Island’s New Media Art to the World

    Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0 is a touring exhibition of over a decade’s worth of Taiwan’s new media art. Next stop is Transmediale, Berlin’s art, culture, and technology festival. Late 2013, the exhibition hit Russia’s Cyberfest and Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria. After Berlin, Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0 will make a final stop at Instant Video in Marseille, France in late 2014.

    On occasion, we may see the work of Taiwanese new media artists, in galleries or by way of online coverage; but, Schizophrenia Taiwan 2.0 seems to be the first of its kind—a menagerie of some of the country’s most significant new media art. It’s also an opportunity for Westerners to see just what’s been brewing on the island nation, since mainland China tends to dominate art and technology headlines.

    The works included in the touring exhibit are mostly videos or installations. The artists aren’t enamored with some of the current digital art trends of the West—GIFs, glitch, pixel art, or web art that looks like Geocities home pages on acid. The artists, in one way or another, made works that comment on Taiwan’s unique national schizophrenia: an island nation that is part of but distinct from mainland China, while also a member of the global community through its tech economy, yet somewhat removed from the international affairs of the wider world.

  • to be

    to.be, a new social platform, however, allows the reblogger to remix their dashboard. As an “online studio space [to] collage the internet,” the to.be user can upload images, videos, and sound from on their desktop, across the web, or directly from their tumblr dashboard onto a “field,” or a blank canvas/background/studio space. With simple editing tools that emulate analog collage processes such as: stencil, duplicate, resize, move, layer, pen, paintbrush, paint-bucket, and erase, the user can create original multimedia collages without software such as Photoshop. As a social platform, collages are published to the to.be stream, where they become “pullable” for other users to reinterpret. The best feature of to.be is the “printable” option which materializes your digital piece as a unique object, either wearable as a t-shirt or sweatshirt or hangable as an art print.
