SFMOMA: snap+share
transmitting photographs from mail art to social networks
March 30–August 4, 2019
https://www.sfmoma.org/exhibition/snap/

The exhibition snap+share gives visitors a new way to visualize — and experience — how photographs have become so ubiquitous in our daily lives. Whether through early examples of 1960s and ’70s mail art, physical piles of pictures uploaded to the Internet over a 24-hour period, or a working refrigerator that allows participatory meme-making, visitors can trace the evolution of sharing photographs.

Spanning the history of mail art to social networks, the show presents a variety of artists working in various media, from framed paper-based art to immersive installations. Some of these artists include On Kawara, Ray Johnson, Moyra Davey, Erik Kessels, Corinne Vionnet, and David Horvitz. Exploring how networks are created through the act of sending images out into the world, this exhibition reveals just how those networks have changed in the age of the Internet.

curated by Clement Cheroux
with: Thomas Bachler, Ray Johnson, Aram Bartholl, On Kawara, Joseph Beuys, Erik Kessels , Moyra Davey, William Larson, Jan Dibbets, Eva and Franco Mattes, Walker Evans, Peter Miller, Jeff Guess, Ken Ohara, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Stephen Shore, Kate Hollenbach, Endre Tót, David Horvitz, Corinne Vionnet

VIRII – a DVD full of viruses

June 26, 2013

I always wanted to make this DVD! During deaddrops.com people warned there could be viruses on the USB drive! Yes, there could be! But now, look! Here is a DVD full of viruses (and artefacts of their history) OMG!! ;)))

VIRII
DVD Dead Drop vol. 8
at the Museum of Moving Image
June 26–July 30, 2013
by Aram Bartholl

“VIRII examines the history and aesthetics, real and imagined, of the computer virus. The volume, a full 4.7GB, includes more than 30,000 actual computer viruses in a password-protected folder, video documentation of nearly a dozen computer viruses, a selection of articles about historically significant viruses, and a gallery of virus clip art.

Viruses, software programs named for their nefarious ability to self-replicate, captured the public’s imagination in the 1980s as personal computers became widely adopted. Viruses of this era would often lie dormant until certain days, when they would activate and create a visible disturbance on screen or erase parts of a computer’s hard drive.

By contrast, today’s viruses are designed to be invisible: hijacking computer resources to send unsolicited email, mask a criminal’s tracks, wage denial-of-service attacks, or spy on the user. Once the domain of tech-savvy pranksters and mischievous hackers, today viruses serve as lucrative tools for economic fraud and weapons regularly deployed for espionage and cyber warfare.”

Greetings from the Internet

Aram Bartholl, 2013,
ongoing postcard series

„Over the past  years I’ve been collecting pictures of wifi passwords when ever I encountered them during travels. In many private and public places there is wireless Internet access available but to connect a password is required. “Is there Internet here?” Often wifi passwords are written or printed on little pieces of paper or on the chalk board behind the counter in the cafe etc. “What is the wifi password?” A lot of these codes are hand written which makes them very vulnerable to mis-spelling or mis-interpretation. Is this an upper case c? Is there a mistake in the code? Are you able to guess the right one? Wifi passwords represent an era of the moment of connection. A moment of human factor before we slowly drift into always connected with all devices where ever we are …“ (Aram Bartholl, 2013)

White To Red

June 13, 2013

Once a day, during nightfall the Berlin TV tower switches its warning lights from white to red. I love this, magic! and I’ve looked out for it often over the years. Tonight I finally caught this moment on video. Be my personal hero and watch the whole thing! Or skip to 1:00 min if you are in a rush ;))) … Or even better try to catch the moment in Berlin on the street, it is around 9:45pm currently.
