More thoughts: ref …on Internet art and platform building. 
Contribution request for Alejandro



Hi Alejandro here are some for notes for you best stanza

PART 2...

The data is the platform. The artwork is the data ;artwork ⇔ platform. The curator is the algorithm. {Refresh} algorithm ⇔ curator. 

Data is the medium of the age . Platforms become connected spaces, events, and things . 

I see my systems based artworks (real time data and generative) as operating as "platforms" . These works act to hold and contain (they begin as ‘spaces’ and then once populated become platforms <=>each acting to create variables and the borders of these systems are which hold ‘value’ and in effect agency.

Including in this are my artworks using / remediating real time networked  images (over twenty projects) IE; live webcams across networks re-thinking, re-mediteing, re-contextualising the now, the ever present (from 2001) .  The platform remains or is now the open system that the data (the real time perspective of live images ) passes through .... creating a world (that I call ) "parallel realities" . An alternate multi-point perspective. 

The networked images are remade inside these platforms creating new forms often pulling images (content/data/information) from hundred of sources. Examples of this are seen seen in my software artwork  like Subfusion 2002 or online works like Urban Generation 2004. Etc 

The platform to stand on; the shoulders of giants.  The container becomes something to reform the data within,  shaped by controlling functions that create variability. Taking this approach Genomixer 2004 houses my DNA data. Sensity 2006 is platform for city wide sensory data (now known as IOT) . 

Platforms of observed and manipulated data are shaped to comment on the panoptic world . Who knew we would bow down to the system subordinated by algorithms. (Well plenty have speculated and it seems we have sown these seeds through our own endeavour). The fruits of these labours create an output of omnipresent control. 

Artworks is like Synchronicity (2013) (real time London tube and bus's feeds)  exist on top of other APIS. Sensity (2006) has its own feeds, Genomixer (2004) uses my DNA data , Urban Generation (2004) uses 400 simultaneous live feeds, The Nemesis Machine (2015)  uses a complete environmental wireless sensor network ,The Reader (2015)  use millions of  data points , Soundtoys has its own API remixing  other artists content,  SoundCities.com has its own feeds. 

These artworks are all platforms of softwares realised as performative experiences working until they no longer work   ...then what . They exists in world of evidenced based Curatorial practice realigned once more. 


And you can play with all this moving data from the real world to the virtual and back to the real . Reshaping making malleable because after all the platform exists to houses the data whether that data is another artworks a live stream a point on a map or number or string of DNA .... it's the data and data is the medium of the age. 

Maybe there's a space for a platforms of surveillance . Making observations about how curatorial systems of control create galleries // read prisons to contain the artwork . Locked onto the platform ( the gallery wall) the idle cultural flaneur is inadvertently subsumed into servitude. The curator holds the keys like the prison warden...... platforms from which walkways lead us down further from the centre of agency only towards the center of attention:


So what next from the intelligent machine AI scoping out our future based of some predictive algorithm…welcome to the present world. I have already deleted my Facebook accounts and twitter feeds. The world of the controlled collective is there for the taking. 

Ok what's next 

If algorithm is social manipulation⇔ The platform is social control.
