Some pictures of our first Digital-Soirée with the release of BOOKS AND BLANKETS – Sebastian Schmieg. The project is a coorpation with Thomas Spallek, supported by perisphere.de and MORGEN Gestaltung.
BOOKS AND BLANKETS is a selection on Internet-Art. Books help us introduce and distribute work containing images and words. Blankets help us to transform the value of art.
BOOKS AND BLANKETS has two main aims. The first is to report on new Net.Art and documenting those. The second is an active role in the transformation of art in close collaboration with the artist. We are looking for projects having their origin, their content and their material anchored to the Internet. This work will be transformed by the artists into a different technology, which has a historical relation to the cybernetic era in the past.

Definitely my fastest work ever, getting better and better! But can still be improved. Anything is always possible on the way to selfoptimization.

Die Konfiguration No 8 is part of the exhibition ‘reflecting on networks / artistic strategies using the web‘ at km temporaer in Berlin between 19.10.20120 and 11.11.2012.
Konfiguration No8 is based on www.spectaculartakeoverbattle.de and consists of 16 similar, numbered and handsigned prints, which are positioned as 4 x 4 on the wall. The single elements make a big complete tableau of Images which will transform during the exhibition ‚reflecting on networks / artistic strategies using the web‘ by the collaboration of the audience.
At the end of the exhibition will be a new piece.
The following piece refers to the idea of filterbubbles which is mentioned in Michael Seemann Blogs where he connets it to his concept of Queryology.
To reade maore about the whole Filterbubble concept please aks google, which will bubble you directly to the wikipaedia-page of your prefered language. German Offlinblogger Sascha Lobo beschreibt writes how this idea also works in the context of fame und selfpresentation.
Somewhere between theses things you could position the floowing homebrewed stuff.

finaly i am also part of stefan riebels pixel collection. the berlin based multisassa, projectmanager, festivalorganizer and creative master mind stefan riebel integrated 1px of superblasterescalationpower into his webbased collection. please visit the project here http://thepixelcollection.stefanriebel.de/some-pieces.html
This piece has been created on a camp site next to Cap Ferret. We had some wonderful und very pleasant days there and i decided to built a 1-peace-ad-hoc-instalation on a tree next to the small street which lead through the campside. So people could easily look at it from their tents, on their way to the toilets or while walking to the beach.
It was a true plastic Plastik made out of several empty very artificial waterbattles fixed together with awesome Gaffa-Tape.
Travellingtime is time for pleasure and experiments. Combining the arts and everydaylife is one of the experimental ideas which have been developed in the last century and impressed me always. I have to admit i really didnt understand the concept behind but i like it. So i spent some time of the trip thinking about how it could look like.
These are some visual experiments with difficult aesthetics i have done on a campsite in france at the atlantic coast.
Some strings and an unused tentpole in combination with good old photoshopwork.
art has to be quick’n dirty and should not take more than 15 minutes of your lifetime a day. so you have to work fast, quick’n dirty. perfect material is for example your dirty dishes before you put it into your cheap, loud chinamade dishwasher.
