A Normal Future – Interview with NORMALS

Normals is a collective whose work crosses a number of boundaries. Perhaps their work is a proposal that the boundaries we once found useful in defining creative practice don’t work as well in our connected/networked/hybrid cultures. What do the spaces between design, digital studio practice, networked art, and Internet Art look like? What do the spaces between fiction, abstraction, and social media performance look like?

It isn’t easy to define through traditional categories what artists create in our contemporary visual culture more broadly and definitely challenging…

On Media Players and Dulltech

As artists that work with digital media, we must constantly navigate the space between hardware, software, and our concept or artistic intent. And as we make our work we must also develop strategies for how that work gets displayed in whatever venue we have available. For example, perhaps we make a video artwork. Immediate decisions for distribution and viewing of that work have to be made – do we upload and let people stream from vimeo or youtube? if we do that, do we let there be commercials or rental payment to generate revenue from views? If we keep the work…

Exhibition Announcement – Revisions—Zen for Film

Revisions—Zen for Film On view September 18, 2015–January 10, 2016 How do works of art endure over time in the face of aging materials and changing interpretations of their meaning? How do decay, technological obsolescence, and the blending of old and new media affect what an artwork is and can become? And how can changeable artworks encourage us to rethink our assumptions of a work of art as fixed and static?
