Some of you 'may' be interested in a selection of interviews I did
between 2010-2013, with people involved in art, technology & social change.
It includes Erica Scourti, Jennifer Chan, Eugenio Tisselli, IOCOSE,
Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern, Charlie Gere, Katrina Sluis, Tamiko
Thiel, John Jordan and Gavin Grindon, Jake Harries, Dmytri Kleiner,
Heath Bunting, Danja Vasiliev, Patrick Lichty, Joseph Young of The
NeoFuturist Collective and Chris Dooks...
Through the years I have interviewed all kinds of people. And yes, it is
has been an absolute privilege to be part of a brilliant culture, where
there are so many amazing and interesting minds. Some view this vibrant
culture as media art or new media art as it has developed in parallel to
the mainstream art world. However, out of this societal shift a whole
new breed of art practitioners has founded a form of controlling the
means of art production on their own terms. This leads us to questions
about what values can we now interpret as contemporary art?
Well, without any doubt I personally view all of these artists,
theorists, coders, hacktivists and tinkerers, as part of larger field of
contemporary art practice. As someone who has been deeply entwined in
the history of this expanding field; I know, just like many others, that
the most interesting and critically engaged art happening out there,
does not only contribute as merely a reflection of the world, but it
also plays a vital role in changing its reality. This means something...
Wishing you well.
