[Update February 10th 2010]

I have now booked (ref 48481) a group visit to Decode, for wednesday the 17 th and this grants us free access to the exhibition.

You need to collect your tickets from me. So, let’s  meet at 3:30 by the Porter Gallery, situated next to the V& A’s grand Entrance (the front of the museum).

Directions to the museum here

Read about the exhibition here.

etivity for week 10

theme:

the theory and practice of networked art (continuation of week 2 topic and the readings of networked book about networked art)

“Decode looks at three current themes within digital design: Code shows how computer code, whether bespoke and tailored, or hacked and shared, has become a new design tool; Interactivity presents works that respond to our physical presence; Network charts or reworks the traces we leave behind.”

readings:

1-the website for the exhibition where you can learn about the 3 sections the material is organised into and browse each individual work:

code

interactivity

network

2- review your readings for week 2 of ‘networked book, a networked book about networked art.’

an easy way to browse all posts for that theme  is via the tag ‘networked art’

posting:

Following your reading of networked book’s essay, choose a networked art project at the V & A decode exhibition, to analyse in relation to the online essay.

Suggestions:

1-you may want to compare the three- dimensional form of the networked installation with the on-line aspect of the written text, commenting on the way the network  is translated into the context of a spatial gallery instalation.

2- you may focus on the  code/ interactive/ or networked aspects of the work to analyse its installation in the physical, technological , visual and/or social space of the gallery;

3- or if the work is also available online (some are; others don’t) you may want to analyse how this translates into the gallery space

Two paragraphs , to be posted after your visit to the gallery;

suggested deadline:

monday march 1st (tp week 11)

About paula roush

I am a Lisbon-born artist based in London, UK. I am the founder of msdm, a platform for art practices that are mobile-strategies-[of]-display-[and]- mediation. It is a platform for both individual and collaborative work, shown in the context of exhibitions, publications, conferences and teaching/seminars. I work with photography, archives, found material and performance through editing strategies that investigate notions of authorship, authenticity, history and memory. I am interested in publishing as artists’ practice and as platform to explore the intersections between the roles of artist, editor and curator. My current projects look at ideas of (re) production in the work of art, resulting in publications in several formats that encompass the hand-made, the print on demand and the ebook.
