„256²“ is a piece which I performed mid May 2007. Finally I found time to reedit the video documentation of this urban intervention.
Pics and more text at the project page.
In the movie I am marking with chalk the first sim (Second Life land unit, 1 simulator = 256m²) of NewBerlin at Berlin Alexanderplatz. The famous TV tower of Alexanderplatz is right in the middle of the virtual representation of Berlin which Tobias Neisecke and Jan Northoff started in Second Life a year ago. Today NewBerlin has at least 8 sims and is still growing.
Behind the screens. 50 years of computer art.
Online, interactive and endless ones and zeroes in algorithms and coding; digital art, in all its forms and designs, is occupying an increasingly important place. And not only that. The growth and developments in the field of digital art also force us to think about the definition and meaning of concepts such as ‚unique‘ and ‚authentic‘. With more than 50 works by 29 artists, the group exhibition Behind the screens – 50 years of computer art shows the various forms of digital art and the developments from the 1970s to the present. A large part of the works of art in this exhibition come from a private collection from Apeldoorn, which includes a number of iconic works of art and gives an impression of the development of digital art.
