Digital corpses all abound, zombie data that is still there, but cannot be performed anymore. Change is inevitable, if the artwork should survive. Besides the archivists' efforts to revive the work in its original state, artists have developed their own strategies of embracing the errors and glitches of re/de/transcoding processes
Digital corpses all abound, zombie data that is still there, but cannot be performed anymore. Besides archivists' efforts to revive the work in its original state, artists have developed their own strategies of embracing errors and glitches of re/de/transcoding processes and open up a dialogue of sameness and change, obsolescence and progress, memory and forgetting, positioned as an antithesis to constant technological progress and perfection.

BYOB Linz && grrrilla galleries

BYOB Linz is a screening event taking place on September 1st and 2nd in public spaces around the city of Linz. "Bring Your Own Beamer" is a "frenchise" exhibition format originally conceived of by Rafael Rozendaal. Artists team up with a beamer and project their videos in a gallery setting for an evening. In the case of BYOB Linz, this gallery is called grrrilla galleries. This is a purely time-spaced gallery that operates in a guerilla gardening style, temporarily occupying public spaces.

BYOB Linz I + II will take place on:
Thursday, September 1st, starting at 22:00, @ the underpath next to the ars electronica quarter (photos)
&
Friday, September 2nd, starting around 21:30 (after the prix ars gala), danube park in front of brucknerhaus

v1ru5

<1ru5 is an exhibition/workshop/adventure/game on [hystorical] artistic computer viruses, their dissemination&& spreading, their various deaths, forms of survival&& states of hibernation. The project researches into virus as artistic practice/expression of appropriating&& breaking the art system as a whole, reflects on hosts&& parasites. virus as a format of tourette is a chinese ghostscript story of self/de/con/struction as playfulness as the ultimate state of f*ck u.

On location, <1ru5 will playfully explore its host bodies, create entropic states, frown and sing its deathly 1<3u lullabies and only follow its own irrational magix.

currently in process (2011). The paper will be presented at FILE Symposium in São Paulo, Brazil, in July 2011.
