► MFF2013 - The Platinum Collection
A chest of buried treasures, as we travel towards the future.
An eighteenth birthday is not a birthday to celebrate like all the others. The mind is subjected to a being bombarded with ideas on maturity, adulthood and rites of passage, the things that can be done and the things that can no longer be done. Nevertheless, the heart still looks back, to crazy adventures, puppy love, problems at school and friends.

The Milano Film Festival is also becoming an adult with its heart filled with anguish. Behind it, hundreds of young authors discovered, on whom we have placed our stakes, wagering on an edition, a screening at night, a workshop. Ahead of us, the panorama of a grey world, where they tell us that a festival is no longer a game, whilst the resources dry up, becoming more and more valuable.

 Wondering how to properly celebrate this passage to adulthood, we decided not to fall into the strap of sterile auto-celebrations, which we really do not pull off well. We began to reason. Out of the 2,300 or so short films that we assess each year, we often find “pleasant acquaintances”: directors that we have selected in the past but who for once have not found the right place in our selection, either due to reasons linked to their age which no longer makes them eligible for the competition or because of the special composition of that year. They are, to all effects, playmates, even though only for one summer, who we meet again today as authors of a proudly mature cinema… (read more)

► Notes on a new nature
Place, Myth and Memory
Arti et Amicitiae will host a month long the exhibition Notes on a New Nature: Place, Myth and Memory, the second curatorial iteration of a research project by Nicholas O’Brien. This expo investigates the ways in which contemporary digital artists are examining the relationship between landscape and technology. For this exhibition, O’Brien posits how these exemplary artists are engaging in an ongoing examination of the tropes and stigmas that revolve around landscape representation as posed by other, more traditional, art forms. Taking the history of cinema, landscape photography, and early modernist painting as a point of departure, these works question how expectations and clichés of landscape representation have become “natural” within visual language and culture.

Cinema, for example, has played a significant role in developing the metaphorical meaning of the American Western landscape. Similarly, early modernist painting has paved the way for abstraction to become a dominant mode for approaching the sublime. This exhibition not only considers how the aesthetic of the digital has contributed to the continuing development of these tropes, but it also – more importantly – shows how the digital can deconstruct these myths.

Although artists in this exhibition approach this challenge from a variety of different perspectives and processes, a common method revolves around investigating the difference between space and place. Space, a geographical, material, and physical embodiment of location does not inherently contain any markings of culture or history. Place, however, is specifically categorized as a location containing memory, history, and a lived-in environment.

Place is what Lucy Lippard argues is the “latitudinal and longitudinal within the map of a person’s life. It is temporal and spatial, [yet] personal and political. A layered location replete with human histories and memories, place has width as well as depth. It is about connections, what surrounds it, what formed it, what happened there, what will happen there.” In this exhibition, artists create places with this in mind. In doing so, they address how the political and personal effect the ways in which they view landscape and shape that space into a place for critical contemplation and personal expression.

Participating artists: Pauline Bastard, Jürgen Bergbauer, Brandon Jan Blommaert, Laura Brothers, Marjolijn Dijkman, Constant Dullaart, Jasper Elings, Bea Fremderman, JK Keller, Jan Robert Leegte, Sara Ludy, Mo Marrie, Jesse McLean, Sabrina Ratté, Rafaël Rozendaal, Nicolas Sassoon, Tale of Tales, John Transue, Anne de Vries

► BEST OF Fach & Asendorf Gallery
Fach & Asendorf Gallery debuted online in 2011 with these words:

The Internet, it is everywhere. It is here, it is there and it is where you actually are. It is so huge that nobody ever could print it. It is so deep that no one ever would dive to its end. There is peace and war in it, love and hate and all between. Once you have traveled through it, you will never forget, and you will come back, asap.

Since then, Fach & Asendorf Gallery has served 24 online exhibitions of digital and net art to more than 28,000 unique visitors. To celebrate the beginning of their third season, Fach & Asendorf Gallery presents BEST OF, an enormous collection of unreleased and exclusive work by 81 artists from around the world spanning a broad range of formats including applications, videos, and animated GIFs.

► Jasper Elings dans l'Oeil de Links (Canal+)
Jasper est habité par l'humour créative. Qu'il contemple un couché de soleil ou un flash dans un miroir et il ne peut en rester là. Avec lui, ces évènements on ne peut plus ordinaires revêtent immédiatement une fibre inhabituelle qui oscille entre le clin d'œil amusé et une touche de rêve. Trop fort Jasper !

► Global Space @ iMOCA, Indianapolis
Global Space opens December 7th at 6 p.m. The exhibit, which runs through January 19, brings together artists An Xiao, Man Bartlett, Clement Valla, Caleb Larsen, Lorena Turner, Aaron Koblin, and Jasper Elings. Through their work the exhibit searches for what it means to be a citizen of the world made so much smaller by our use of the Internet.

When assembling the exhibit, curator Ben Valentine asked himself how humans relate to and engage with something as ephemeral as the cloud and crowd, as distant as child labor, and the simultaneously accessible and unfathomable amount of content that is held within Google.

Elings is a Dutch animator and Internet artist. He is considered one of the new, highly inventive generation of young animators who explore new techniques and platforms for their work. Elings’ work often consists of light-hearted animations dealing with contemporary internet culture. Using the everyday and pop-culture as reference, Elings pushes the aesthetics of online space, an arena characterized by a dizzying array of content, influences, and interconnectivity.

He studied animation and film at the Art Academy AKV St. Joost in Breda, the Netherlands where he graduated in 2005. Elings lives and works in the Netherlands and his artwork has been shown on many different platforms like Tumblr, international film festivals, the New Museum, and is constantly featured prominently in Speed Shows around the world.

► Jasper Elings se marre devant son ordinateur
Some of my work featured on The Creators Project. Excerpt text: "Jasper Elings fait partie de ces trublions de l’informatique et plus particulièrement d’internet. Ces jeunes personnes qui, derrière leur écran, passent la journée à essayer de dénicher les anomalies du monde binaire – dans la lignée de grands enfants comme Travess Smalley. La visite de son site web dépeint un artiste aux inspirations multiples et aux idées à la fois géniales et farfelues.

L’artiste néerlandais semble s’attacher à tous les médiums : du photo-montage au .gif, de la vidéo à la collection d’images. On ne saurait déceler une quelconque cohérence entre chacun de ses travaux mais on comprend très rapidement que son cynisme et son regard ironique sur la technologie est présent dans toutes ses pièces. Si vous avez déjà participé à des expositions de web-art, vous avez sûrement déjà croisé ses œuvres, la liste interminable des groupes shows auxquels Jasper Elings fut convié se situe en bas à gauche de sa page".

► JunkJet no5 - fanzine for electronics and aesthetics
Junk Jet has developed an archive impossible that ­trans­ports, in print format, net based works, or ­fragments of works showing collections, series, animations, applications, and reflecting anti-heart texts on the net and its new forms of art,design, and architecture. N°5, the net.heart issue, has transferred internet things from their digital space into a paper jet. This transportation procedure relies on documents in a similar way as the museum relies on photograph and video documenting performance arts. And Junk Jet believes that this analogue documentation is in no way inferior to pseudo-preserving techniques of data migration, emulation, or reprogramming. At the end, Junk Jet says: Transportation is not so much about the artwork as object, but rather about the indication of the subjective decision of the artist. In this sense Junk Jet is a Russian conceptualist.

► Net Work I.R.L. (in this room)
is one of those computer words commonly used but rarely spoken. If I assume a general user, I opt for the more popular hard “G” /gif/ instead of the original /dʒɪf/ as in “gym”. To a hard G’s defense the G does stand for “Graphics”. However, the acronym’s own inventors have always emphatically stressed that it should sound like “Jif” the peanut butter. So “Jif” it is when I’m being choosy. Even then I tentatively amend that under my breath with a hard “G” to play things safe. I know this is internet nerd esoterica, but it underscores my point: that the word’s phonetic oscillations nicely evoke its temporal, oft-animated situation across multiple states. Visually and semantically, the back on itself and the speaker like an unsure ouroboros forever updating its own tail.

It’s a place where immediacy rules, where visual arts becomes virtual«, promises the Super Art Modern Museum, or SPAMM for short. Michaël Borras aka Systaime and Thomas Cheneseau founded the online museum in France, albeit that geographical information is practically irrelevant in the internet era. Borras and Cheneseau present more than 50 works from the `community´, another concept that does not follow geographical frontiers. Eight of these works can now be seen at CERMÂ in two parts. The new`Digital Art Avant-garde´ discovers each other, receives and produces, communicates and grows. This is a scene that is not accessible to everyone, nevertheless extremely productive. All over the world, new artistic positions arise that evade the ›White Cube‹: animated GIFs, Glitches, web based conceptual art, three-dimensional animations. Institutions have grown around digital art, real and virtual spaces such as the Rhizome at the New Museum in New York, the MACBA in Barcelona and the Berlin based Transmediale give these positions a stage and an audience. Pixels are the material artists use to paint and shape, realizing their aesthetic visions. But can we herald the beginning of a new era, or is this just a handful of nerds who place some virtual artefacts here and there on the web? It seems quite apropos to use a commonplace cliché: one imagines pale, socially awkward creatures suffering from a lack of sunlight who sit in a darkened basement staring at brightly illuminated screens, typing furiously and moving pixels. The reason why digital art has not yet found its way into lounges, the ›white cubes‹, the living rooms of the postmodern society, may partially be explained with this stereotype. However, there is nothing wrong with being seen as a nerd. This stereotype allows young artists to experiment and can also become the material for humorous self-reflection. Jeremy Bailey, who was part of the previous CERMÂ exhibition, likes to poke fun at the typical nerd and the whole spectrum of media art. He creates pixel sculptures, which he integrates in video clips as overlays to his body and comments ironically. A guest exhibition curated by SPAMM displays tendencies within the current digital art. Four artists work in the first part of the two-part exhibition in SPAMM’s virtual project room. They all create and sculptures for a virtual space.
