I am pleased to announce the next SPEED SHOW of the ongoing series upcoming week in New York City! It was much fun putting together such a great selection of Internet / browser based art from a wide range of awesome artists of different net-genres and net-‘decades’. :-) I am expecting around half of the artists to be present and I hope all you people in greater NY will come and see! Credits to EYEBEAM for having me as a resident in NY! Check also SPEED SHOW Traces which took place 10 days ago in Bucharest and was organized and curated by Silvia Saitoc & Matei Sâmihăian! Great job guys! (pics)

SPEED SHOW vol.4: Super Niche
Wednesday, 27th Oct. 2010, 8-11 PM
90 Bowery Internet Cafe, NY 10013
( G-maps ) FB on.fb.me/cjevSi

Has (inter)net.art left its niche? Or is it clustered into zillions of tiny net niches splintered into numerous subtopics? The Super Niche could be a very big niche, a surf-club which is almost mainstream (?) or a sub cell of a extreme small niche of  a 1-visitor ever page in deprecated HTML oblivion. Learning from evolution the beauty lies in the absurdity of super niche solutions, of visual workarounds in every day life net culture. It’s time to create more niches! It’s time to superfy!

Produced and curated by: Aram Bartholl

The SPEED SHOW exhibition format:

Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night. All art works of the participating artists need to be on-line (not necessarily public) and are shown in a typical browser with standard plug-ins. Performance and life pieces may also use pre-installed communication programs (instant messaging, VOIP, video chat etc). Custom software (except browser add-ons) or off-line files are not permitted. Any creative physical modification to Internet cafe itself is not allowed. The show is public and takes place during normal opening hours of the Internet cafe/shop. All visitors are welcome to join the opening, enjoy the art (and to check their email.)

I was digging through some old hard drives and came across a series of photos I had shot as part of my thesis project way back in the day. This photo was taken somewhere in Lower Manhattan in 2004.
