Editor’s Note: last month, we launched AFC Workshops: 21st Century Survival for Artists, a two-part series of courses led by artists, educators and art-world insiders designed to give artists the tools to get ahead. Due to the positive response to our May 21 workshops, we decided to run on the blog a series authored by the facilitators summarizing their course’s key takeaways. (If you’re interested, there are a few spots still available for our upcoming June 18 workshops.)

Next up, Anthony Antonellis, who led our “Best Practices: Digital Art Storage” course. Anthony is an artist based on the internet, whose practice involves various forms of net art and curating exhibitions in alternative spaces, such as the 1-kilobyte chip implanted in his hand. He lectures at SUNY Purchase College and is the creator of netartnet.net, an online-gallery listing and directory.

What a strange coming of the Lord, Anthony Antonellis‘s stained glass iPhone presents. Unlike most places of worship, this space is entirely empty, lit only by the glow of the phone. This version of the phone doesn’t appear to connect us with anyone. Is this what life with a smart phone is like; solitary and quiet? The space reminds me less of a temple than it does a movie theatre; a place where we sit together in silence while sharing something of a communal experience.

Is it possible to confuse a Poland Spring bottle of water with a $300.00 Poland Spring bottle of water stuffed with a Chinese knockoff wristband? Nestlé is hedging its bets on a current trademark infringement claim against artist Anthony Antonellis, claiming that average consumers can’t tell the difference between their bottled water and his, largely because his work belongs on a website URL formerly owned by the conglomerate.

At this point, 2014 is still a wash; trending words included “asphyxiation” and “misogyny”, but the most-typed phrase was an emoji heart. Naturally, we turn to GIFs.
