I ve been looking at these cheaply produced, super low resolution LED signs (the IRL animated gif ;-) for a while already.  End of last year I filmed this meaningfull pair in a kiosk window in Berlin and fell in love with them.  First I used the picture for the SPEED SHOW 5 title in Paris but I had to take it a bit further. :) You find LED signs in any shopping window especially in EU these days. There are also many OPEN signs in US but hardly any INTERNET signs. I had to change that! :)

The OPEN INTERNET intervention was produced during my residency stay at EYEBEAM.

DISCLAIMER:  Don’t do this at home …ähhh … at the city trains U-Bahn or S-Bahn. They check those quite often. The bus driver in the city might ask you for a ticket or yell at you but you can always try to just walk in. At Tegel nobody cares AT ALL …. enjoy the coffee places in Berlin! ( That’s all what we have ;-)

1. Download your pass here.
2. Print it on heavy paper, both sides.
3. Insert your name with a pen.
4. Visit MOMA a whole year for free!

You are only eligible to obtain an MOMA artist annual pass (25,-$) (regular entrance fee 20,- $ !!!) if you can proof  that you had ‘OFF-LINE’ !!!  art shows. Can you believe that? Online art doesn’t count in?!? We need to change that.

The making of the Free MOMA pass:

Let’s scan this!

It seems I am artist number #7156 who got an artist pass. (This year? Since the system was implemented? Doesn t matter in fact.) The  entrance guard will just scan the code and look at the read out if the pass is valid. Code format is CODE_39. Ok nice!

Let’s scan the whole thing in high res!

We better generate that magic code A000000000007156 again at Online Barcode Generator for better print quality  :-) You might wanna also just become the artist pass owner #7155 in case they kick Aram Bartholl out of the DB for some reason. ;-)

Done! I recommend the Andy Warhol: Motion Pictures show on 5th floor. Awesome! Let’s meet for a make out flashmob in that ‘exhibtion’ cinema ;-)
[You might also just go to Free Friday Nights, held every Friday evening from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m :-)]
