By far the best, most engaging, jaw-droppingly awesome public art project I’ve seen this year was made by Lorna Mills, and showcased at OCAD.
This is an outtake GIF from Małgosia Woźnica’s “Arxitekton,” an incredible GIF trip through mechanized architecture. For the project, Woźnica made a site to scroll through an isolated, Tron-like universe where her strange architecture lives. The UX is pretty great, too: you can scroll vertically or horizontally, and you’re given “slow” or “fast” connection speed options.
Those in search of a definitive text on post-internet artmaking now have a source book to download. Curators Karen Archey and Robin Peckham have released Art Post-Internet, a catalogue to accompany their show Art Post-Internet at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing China. More than that, it’s full of primary source research and information about post-internet art from dozens of critics, curators and museum professionals. These include Christiane Paul, Ben Davis, Domenico Quaranta and myself to name a few. Each catalog receives its own unique unique download number, as well as a weather report for the day and place where it was downloaded.
These aren’t art GIFs, but if anyone remembers our Panda Liveblog during last year’s government shutdown, you’ll understand why we have such an affection for these guys. We spent more than two weeks broadcasting ourselves dressed as pandas while blogging. Check out our AWESOME recap video by Rhett Jones.
In any event, we’re not over this panda thing. Here are 10 more GIFs to prove it. More after the jump.
