20/11/2018 Art in a Digital Environment – Elusive Taxonomies

Discussion around Elusive Taxonomies. Some quotes from Jonathan here. More reflection to follow.

This is a developing list from Christiane Paul…

computability, process oriented, time based, dynamic, networked, real-time, telematic, interactive, participatory, collaborative, non-linear, performative and modular, variable, generative, customisable.

here is a quote from 1999 – so VERY old in this context!!

‘there is no ‘ism’ associated with digital art’

Rush, M. New Media in Late 20th Century Art. London: Thames & Hudson, 1999 p.168

in that quote from Rush – ‘there is no ‘ism’ associated with digital art’

he doesn’t make very clear if he thinks there will be a new ‘ism’ in the future,

he is more commenting that the previous ‘isms’ of the 20th C have run their course (Cubism, Surrealism, Conceptualism etc.) these were ‘intra-art’ practices, ie one movement reacting to its predecessor

we will finish with this quote as it is more focused on practice…its s a quote from 1997!!

‘The artist’s ability to effortlessly reposition and combine images, filters and colours, within the friction-less and gravity-free memory space of the computer, endows them with an image-making freedom never before imagined.’

(Fifield, G. The Digital Atelier. Art New England: Oct/Nov 1997)

27/11/2018 Art in a Digital Environment – Elusive Taxonomies

how do you react to this quote? (note it is from from 1997 – so LONG time ago!)

‘The artist’s ability to effortlessly reposition and combine images, filters and colours, within the friction-less and gravity-free memory space of the computer, endows them with an image-making freedom never before imagined.’

(Fifield, G. The Digital Atelier. Art New England: Oct/
