BIOevent

Agreeing with Deleuze, the revolution of simulacrum is to introduce a break in the ontological classical distinctions between essence and appearance, original and copy , true and false, natural and artificial. At BIOevents, organic shapes in a latent state, remains in the webspace until carried by an interactor intervention, put in action an image poetic-visual repertory, which exists like dynamic entities in constant metamorphosis. Flow from manipulation, the beauty rely in their morphogenesis: the viewer becomes co-creator. BIO prefix which means life, is the main subject where scripts which simulate it were developed around.

UNSTABLE PORTRAIT OF JOSEPH GOEBBELS

ALEKSANDAR MACASEV

2004

Besides the Catholic church , which used quite elaborate principles in its counter reformation campaign, Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda, was the first to form principles of contemporary propaganda. The principles, used at first only for the purposes of war and politics, are now involved in total mass communication. In this present moment one cannot tell the difference between means of propaganda, advertising, entertainment, or education. All of these mass communication activities actually deal with selling of some sort of ideology. The methods employed are the same - manipulating with great variety of the feelings of the target audience. The world has become a ground for a huge communication network where there is no difference between selling soap, ideology, good feelings or politicians. "The big brother is not watching anymore. He is singing and dancing." "Lullaby" - Chuck Palahniuk

Graduated from the Faculty of Architecture, Belgrade in 1998. Lives and works in Belgrade, Serbia and Montenegra. A.

DESTROYEVIL.COM

KATIE BUSH

2002 - ongoing

Destroyevil.com by Katie Bush is a site of Evil animations, created the night after George W Bush's 'Axis of Evil' speech. Each day, the artist adds an additional animation inspired by themes of war, corporate influence, suburban life and compounding consumerism. Stylistically the animations conform to a white/black/red/green format representing a good/evil/stop/go mentality. Each looped animation quietly explores the increasingly violent influences of our socio-political realities. Consumerism + Military = Hooray! Snowballing militaristic memes (bombing, bombing, bombing) visually trample and/or coincide with banal, suburban narratives (shopping, shopping, shopping) in a re-evaluation of the American Dream... And why not?! Everyone loves Shopping and Bombing!

Known throughout the world as 'America's Favorite Lady', Katie Bush has been exhibiting digital and analog works since 1993 in venues throughout North America, Australia, Europe and South America.

 

INTERVALS

PETER HORVATH

2004

Intervals explores a series of characters whose investigation of self and identity unfold and elide through a sequence of cinematic interludes. Hovering through an amorphous landscape we begin by observing the mirror images of four animated figures. At once seductive and illusive, these portraits successively expose their most intimate selves through accounts of lost innocence, fear of the unknown, masculine ritual and the mystery of love. Here identity is subject to slippages, distortions, and to filmic alter egos that mimic and echo their subjects' memory. "Horvath's innovative use of pop-up windows create a virtual collage that posit identity as a series of random 'memory acts' but whose inquiry accumulate into a slowly revealing narrative of the human condition."- Celina Jeffery

Peter Horvath works in video, sound, photo-based and new media. Camera in hand since age 6, he inhaled darkroom fumes until his late 20's, then began exploring art forms in time based media. Immersed himself in digital technologies at the birth of the Web, co-founded 6168.org, a site for net.art, and adopted techniques of photo-montage which he uses in his net-based and 2D works. Exhibitions include the Whitney Museum Of American Art's Artport, the 18th Stuttgarter Filmwinter (Stuttgart, Germany), FILE Electronic Language International Festival (Sao Paulo, Brazil), Video Zone International Video Art Biennial (Tel Aviv, Israel), the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (Québec City, Canada), as well as venues in New York, Tokyo, London, and numerous net.art showings.
