*Accompanying interview:*

MONOCHROMACITY AS A REFLECTION OF COMPUTING PROCESSES IN INTERNET-BASED ART
In conversation with the art historian Thomas Dreher
http://cont3xt.net/blog/?p=3424

A reduction of structure, material, and space; if colour articulates
itself,
independently of interpretation or context - does that make it autonomous?
Monochromacity has been considered the most essential form of abstraction,
having provided a source of inspiration for non-figurative and
non-representational tendencies in contemporary art, these ideas need to be
taken still further in the age of digital images. The notion of a "pure"
medium proposed by twentieth-century modernism with its ideals of autonomy
is increasingly being pushed aside by mixed media approaches.

How does the media quality of a digital image determine its appearance? If
the Internet is used as a tool for communicating artistic expression, how
does that relate to the history of art? Which ways of reading the Internet
have users developed? These questions point to the fact that reflecting on
this condition is not an end in itself, but at best an intrinsic and
obvious
undertaking. The exhibition WHITE, YELLOW, BLUE, AND BLACK, ONE
COINCIDENCE,
AND ONE OBJECT. presents eight international positions in Internet-based
art
that embrace monochromacity as a formal principle without clinging to the
ideological aims of earlier artistic avant-gardes.
