|Martelli and Gibson, SwanQuake, 2007|
Here are the links from where to start searching for the artists, collaboratives or groups that you will research and present to the class:
Wikipedia New Media - Artists
Ubuweb (mostly old school new media)
Rhizome.org Artbase (primarily internet art)
Furtherfield: Arts, Technology and Social Change
Gamescenes: Art in the Age of Videogames
First group of presentations will take place on Thursday, September 15th.
Develop a 4-5 minute presentation.
1) Research and discover everything you possibly can find about your artist, collaborative or group.
2) Describe the work and present a critical alnalysis of the artist(s) and works in question. Why does the work interest you? What is it? What does it do? Where do you see the artist situated in the realm of media based practices (game art? interactive art? cybernetic art? etc....)
3) Of course include images, video, sound as appropriate incorporated into your powerpoint.
4) Seek to contact the artist(s) and ask some questions.
5) Go deep!
I will look into options for optimizing the sharing of these presentations to the class (will be looking into dropbox or slideshare). I will let you know how to proceed in the coming weeks.
Send me any questions!
