WJ's (instead of VJ) playing with webbased software. Live-performances, live-conferences, live-presentations. Control of the mixers, you become a curator, make your playlist. There are three screens in the room with which we can interact. Browsing into a spectacle. Present internet art. A bit like a music production software. It becomes more intense than just showing internet content.
drag en drop content on the screen.
for exhibition of online content for a longer period of time.
Internet is the hard disk, you don't need anything on your computer.
The idea of the content is to navigate, not to VJ or to mix on one screen.
Relearn, three summers in constance, set of workshops.
Has a Pi and a OPENWRT TP-Link router with a network. "Internet is a place to reach information very quickly, but it's not an archive. Work disappears. How to continue to work digitally." Life spans/cycle is different for each project. Think about how to preserve/translate or throw away. For example dump the information in git. "solidifies the different kinds of formats of solidification I think)"

What happens when images and networks come together. Photography in Britain wasn't seen as an artform. Tate only started collecting photography in 2009. Photography in modern day, network culture, completely changed. Everybody is a photographer.
(?) Uses the internet as a camera
camera as network system, camera is networked, camera that takes other peoples photos

Web editing software. Art on your screen: http://aoys.zkm.de/neddam.php
A place where you can freely play multiple video/audio on top of each other.

Platform where people can register and use the tool:
15:40-15:50 presentation by Harm van den Dorpel
In my practice i made a lot of texts snippets and they needed a home. I wanted to make a sort of bucket instead of a portfolio. www.delinear.info
By consuming it (social media) structuring it slowly.
No distinction between content and navigation. (The content is the navigation). Only things that are giving attention to are propagated. That also prevents trolling.
The nature of your tool is going to influence your practice very much.
The website is the primary experience.

part 1: The Confusion
Is it networks online or offline, centralized or non-centralized, critical or ironical, network of people or machines, (etc.)
network in a broader social economic sense. Not "how to do art within networks", but "how to make art in systems, of things being human and non-human" Power-struggle between different groups.
copy-left - trying to distribute work under the terms of copy-left. copy-left net art.
Nam June Paik's interest in FORTRAN
Code brutalism ..."close to the metal"
As platforms become more popular, prevalent, the networked art / software art practices change.
Now taking place on platforms, not by artists on their own.
It needs to be clear what the "transaction is"...
What are the conditions?
Questions of ownership and power return again and again.
refusing to acknowledge the trasnaction is repeating the mistakes of the past.
Successful art work should work like a meme.
Documentation - all that is left is a documentation video. Media Art documentation - the same. The documentation is the work.
You are always in a relationship with the software you use.
The becoming of the artist critique. Since this discussion has moved to a place foreign for artists. The terms created within Silicon Valley.
Commodify us, our data our terms (furtherfield) => becomes actual product without critique (service to collect data and resell it)
Not an interesting position for artists... to be parodic or develop "crazy" ideas as a critical tactic, if they are just recuperated / turn into actual products.
Not do art with networks: but within
part 2: The Lottery
Someone in the audience got a Pi to put work on and pass on after a week.
