This looks super interesting - 20/5:
The internet is broken! What can we learn from the pioneers of media art to take back the internet? For this new edition of ReCoding we are inspired by Mouchette, one of the online persona’s created by Martine Neddam back in 1996, far before the establishment of social media.
Net-art researcher Annet Dekker will lead the conversation and give us insights into context and ideologies of early net-artists. Then we’ll focus on Mouchette and Martine Neddam’s work to learn more about how storytelling, personas, and web functions are closely intertwined. The evening will close with a conversation with Yehwan Song who is commissioned by CCU to create a new piece inspired on Mouchette. We’ll talk with Yehwan about the ideologies and visions embedded in her work and get a first reaction on her plans to ReCode Mouchette.
@siusoon You inspired me to check out Decker, and I found this amazing site; https://thebrokentimeline.valiz-makingpublic.net/ which led me to this: http://archive.rhizome.org/exhibition/splashback/14_grancher.php Thanks!
We are an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
