Darknets and the deep web

An article on the internet underground,


"The deep web and its “darknets” are a new battleground for those who want to uphold the right to privacy online, and those who feel that rights need to be sacrificed for the safety of society. The deep web is also the new frontier for those who want to rival Google in the field of search."

Vinyl - Paris

vinyl, records and covers by artists
la collection Guy Schraenen
19 February - 16 May 2010

From February 19th to May 16th 2010, la maison rouge presents Vinyl, an exhibition of records and covers compiled by the British collector, publisher and curator Guy Schraenen.

For more than 30 years, Guy Schraenen’s fascination with artists’ multiples (objects, catalogues, books, magazines) has led him to amass a unique and highly specialised collection on the theme of sound.

Vinyl shows LPs from an acoustic and visual angle to illustrate how artists from the 1920s and throughout the twentieth century have experimented with language and sound. The exhibition presents close to 800 albums alongside tapes, CDs, specialist magazines, reference books, catalogues and artworks.

HTML Colour Codes

The HTML Colour Codes exhibition features a selection of internet based artwork that address the topic of digital colour. The central question that the exhibition poses is whether or not artists working with the internet are in fact limited to a “ready-made” colour palette, a premise that many artists working with film, photography, and mass produced, standardized paint sets have assumed. The rationale for this question stems from theories of perception that argue that colour is a not ready-made object found in a paint set or machine, but rather it is an experience that results from a complex process of light interacting with the retina and human nervous system.

Elbow Toe - USA

ELBOW-TOE is a Brooklyn, NY based artist that has been creating introspective urban art for several years. His artwork for the streets is grounded in myth, symbolism and poetry and is primarily executed in woodcut, stencil or large-scale charcoal drawings. His oeuvre is a study of human gesture as communication and he utilizes public spaces as stages for private moments. He is particularly interested in the ability of environmental forces outside his control to create a timeless quality to the work thereby allowing it to feel as if it has been memory and is part of the collective unconscious.

London Street Art Magazine - #4

"Spring has sprung, the paint is drying, the ideas are flying and LSD is back with vengeance. Issue 4 brings together a wild and colourful array of some of the world’s most spectacularly creative artists with giants of ideas like Noam Chomsky, old school reprobates like Bill Drummond, bassline activists, computer geniuses and our rampant regulars. Jaw dropping realism jostles for space with legends like Ron English as we take a sizzling trip into the sublime, the subversive, the glowing, the heaving, the philosophical, the political, the ethereal and the deepest recesses of radiant imagination. Bulging at the seams with the absolute cutting edge of the creative underground – art, music, fiction, poetry and epic photography all flash by in an issue dedicated to the Unauthorised Heroes that throw the light of perception onto the walls of our reality. From the Wu Tang to Elite Force, from Spanish realists to Argentinean surrealists, from the radical spiritual apocalypse of Mear One to the wild style wizardry of Can Two and Ezra – Issue 4 is heaving."
