The Art show is currently taking place at a Gallery near TOG. The
address is Steambox, School street, which is near the Guiness bewery
tourist entrance. It's a technology based installation which may be of
interest to people on this mailing list.

It's open Tuesdays to Sundays 12-5 and I dropped in last night and was
impressed.

If you speak nicely they may give you a tour of their artist studios
located on the upper floors. If you ask questions they will explain
the ideas behind each item. Hopefully we can colaborate more in the
future.

Net art primarily exists within a virtual public space, and is created to
be seen by anyone, anywhere, at any time. The immateriality and indistinct
physical location of net art challenges the traditional modes of viewing
and contextual experience that exists for art-viewing audiences. In this
exhibition, the curator challenges these issues by translating the
experience and conceptual understanding of Antonellis's work into a unique
immersive site-specific installation. The exhibition recalls the familiar
aesthetics of the original work and transforms, reassembles the work into
new forms, and re-contextualises them for the gallery setting.

The collaborative exchange between curator and artist is a fundamental part
of this exhibition. Consequently, the exhibition presents an experimental
model that challenges the conventional presentation and viewing of online
art.

In this particular exhibition, CMYRGB is encountered as a room infused with
clouds of color that reflect the aesthetics of the original set of GIFS.
The immaterial work putitonapedestal.com, which in its original virtual
form, playfully critiques the role of institutional curation is recreated
through printed 3D forms and visual mappings.

Anthony Antonellis
b.1981
Lives and works on the internet.

Anthony Antonellis is a visual artist who is known primarily for his work
online, but his practice is not limited to virtual space. His process
copy-pastes between analog and digital states, exploring the simultaneity
of real and virtual objects. His recent works have experimented in short
animation, installations, painting, and internet based art. Several of his
pieces have been curated into the Rhizome ArtBase at the New Museum (New
York). His work has been included in recent exhibitions at Jacob’s Island
(London), Eyebeam (New York), Glitch Festival (Chicago/Amsterdam), and at
online galleries including bubblebyte.org and SPAMM.fr.

Antonellis studied at Savannah College of Art and Design, BFA in painting,
and Bauhaus-University Weimar, MFA in new artistic strategies. He is
currently an adjunct professor at Bridgewater State University.

Nora O’ Murchú is a researcher, curator and designer. She has a degree in
Electronic and Computer Engineering from Nui- Galway, and a Masters in
Interactive Media from the University of Limerick. Her research interests
include grassroots prac- tices, open source culture, and programming.
She is the founder and creator of Tweak - Irelands premier digital and
interactive art festival. Through the platform of Tweak, Nora brought and
hosted some of the leading technologists, and digital artists to Ireland
for the first time, including Golan Levin, Massimo Banzi, Tristan Perich,
and Gregory Shakar.

She has recently received her PhD from the Interaction Design Centre in the
University of Limerick. Her research examined the online practices of open
source users and provides an in-depth analysis of this practice for an
Interaction Design context. In addition she suggests curation as a research
method for Interactions designers, and provides a detailed account of how
this methodology can foster creative innovation for end-users to work as
designers in the context of their everyday lives.
She has worked as a research associate for the Interaction Design Centre at
the University of Limerick, and the Interaction Research Studio at
Goldsmiths, where she has consulted on a broad range of topics, including
health informatics, and web platforms. She was the leading researcher on
the Tidy Street project — an EPSRC project between the Open University and
Goldsmiths that examined the shared energy practices of a small community
in Brighton, England.

Currently she is the curator in residence for the Irish Museum of
Contemporary Art, where she is investigating experimental curatorial
techniques for translating online digital practices into gallery settings
and meaningful experiences for visitors.
