Today is the last chance to vote for Graffiti Analysis and Graffiti Markup Language for the Transmediale 2011 Open Web Award. The margin is still very close (within 50 votes), so every vote really counts at this point.
Q. Is the voting process annoying?
Q. Is it ridiculous to pit three very strong open initiatives against each other for a relatively small amount of funding?
Q. If you win, will you use the opportunity to further alienate yourself from the new media arts festival scene?
For instructions on how to vote and to see the current vote tally go to:

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 :-)]
