LA POST/ARTIST ATTACKED

22 Jan

PYRAMID OF CONTROLSINCE WE VISITED LOS ANGELES DISTANT STAR HAS BEEN BUSY TRAVELING THE WORLD/ FROM MEXICO CITY TO MIAMI GAINING MUCH DESERVED ATTENTION, BUT ALSO SOME UNINTENDED DIGITAL “ATTENTION”  FOCUSING ON ONE WORK IN PARTICULAR…

THE INTERNET IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO HAPPEN TO THE ART WORLD SINCE CAVE PAINTING

IT ALLOWS INSTANTANEOUS RETRIEVAL OF VISUAL INFORMATION, REFERENCES, COMMUNICATION, & COLLABORATION.  THE VERY NOTION OF ART HISTORY BECOMES FRAGMENTED AS ONCE TANGIBLE OBJECTS & TRANSACTIONS BECOME INTANGIBLE.  THE IDEA OF OWNERSHIP OF THE “ORIGINAL” WORK MATTERS TO ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE AUDIENCE.  THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ACCESS ART IN VIRTUAL GALLERIES, PRIMARILY IN JPEG FORM, ON A SCREEN.  IT OPENS UP THE ONCE CLOSED ART SYSTEM TO EVERYBODY, WHETHER THEY REALIZE THEY ARE LOOKING AT “ART” OR NOT.  THE NOTION OF RAREFIED ACADEMIC DISCOURSE SURROUNDING ART HISTORY & THE NATURE OF “WHAT IS ART?” BECOMES TOTALLY MOOT.

THE JPEG OF MONSIEUR PAIN BY ARMANDO ANDRADE TULEDA HAS BEEN CONTINUOUSLY & SYSTEMATICALLY ATTACKED BY INTERNET BOT SPAM. THESE ATTACKS ARE DECEPTIVE AS THEY PROMOTE THE WEBSITE WHILE EMBEDDING SPAM LINKS. PT I RAFT

924COLLECTIVE COMPILES THE INFORMATION FEEDS ON THESE ATTACKS DIRECTED @ MONSIEUR PAIN & CREATES A NARRATIVE COMPILED BY INTERNET SPAMBOTS, TO CREATE A UNIQUE COLLABORATIVE ARTWORK.  COMMENTING ON THE NOTIONS OF ART HISTORY WITHIN THE INTERNET, & THE INCREASING USAGE & HIJACKING OF THESE INVISIBLE SYSTEMS.
