ISEA2015 :: Disruptive Closing Ceremony

After another great day of listening, meeting, and discussing, The Yes Men keynote and closing ceremony was intense. It unexpectedly began with a student protest after the opening remarks by Simon Fraser’s President, Andrew Petter. The student called attention to alleged monies being accepted by Simon Fraser from the tar sands pipeline. The Yes Men where then asked to participate in a video to assist in the protest by the student (NSFW), which they readily did. This was all very disruptive, and therefore, highly appropriate. The Yes Men continued with their goals and background, showing clips from their recent movie: The Yes Men are Revolting.They…

Dispatch from Vancouver – ISEA2015 Part 2

ISEA2015 is barely half over, and its amazing to think back to what’s already happened and also what is still to come. I’m not able to stay for the entire conference, but have really enjoyed the engaging programming and all of the events. I’m going to just mention a few… as I’m sure you know its impossible to see everything that you really want to at a conference of this scale. The quality of what I’ve seen and heard about, however, puts you in the position where its difficult to make a bad decision – there’s something for everyone. On…

Dispatch from Vancouver – ISEA2015 Part 1

I’m a bit at a loss for words, but wanted to share a little bit as everything starts to take off here in Vancouver for ISEA2015. If you’re around, you should try to catch up with me, but I know it’s probably next to impossible with all the great things going on. Thanks so much to Simon Frasier University and just about all of Vancouver for the welcome and good vibez! As I write this dispatch, I’m sitting at the venue waiting, excitedly for the Hakanaï performance to begin. I’ve heard a lot of great things about their work and am eagerly anticipating…

Characteristics of Internet-based Art

            The “ongoing” characteristics of Internet-based art offer an open-ended element to the concept of a project. These characteristics begin with access and presentation on the Internet, but are always supplemented with the specific intent of the artist.             Artist, Dina Kelberman has a couple of ongoing projects listed on her website. One of Dina’s processes is to form her art by surfing the web. These found digital images range from cartoons to postings of personal videos. They are grouped by subject matter in a free-form visual association to create her Internet-based projects. The online-only exhibition website page of the…
