Electronic Arts: Artist Number One "Corby and Baily"

In studying and looking over these artist's works, I found the "gameboy_ultraF_uk" to be very awesome, I liked how over time the work lost quality and became distorted. Really took the face value off the work, and became more technical.

I/P Copyright issues

Case Study 1: "George Harrison and The Chiffons"

In the case of George Harrison's track, I feel that these two songs "He's so fine" and "My Sweet Lord" do have some similarities in composition, tone and chordal structure..But the repetition of the Chiffons has not been reflected George Harrisons song at all, their song is an upbeat pop jivin track, whilst Harrison's has a slow romantic feel. Dealing with this subject for me brought up the question "Is anything original?" these days?

Case Study 2: "12 Monkeys - Universal Studios and Lebbeus Woods"

To me the chair
used in this movie scene is INDENTICAL to the one in the drawing. It even has the mood in the scene exactly how the drawing feels.

Case Study 3: "Oh So Criminal"

I think that Smith's work has a good point, but at the end of the day it is indeed copyright infringment. It was cool the context it was used in, but I feel that he is fighting a losing battle because logos and copyright are important to a firm, as they are globally recognised.

week 10 online presence

name three different ways that you might like to develop an 'online presence' and give a brief description of each:

facebook- online networking site make your own blogs and upload photos and anything else you wish.

blog- a site you can create your own blog to update daily or however often you wish and upload images and videos eg. blogger.com.

website- a website is a public site for people to access information about you it is a very accessable online presence.

i would rather use the online blog as its easy to navigate and feels more accessible.

week 9 free software

this is a video from www.vimeo.com talking about the future of software being open software."Open source software generally allows anyone to create modifications of the software, port it to new operating systems and processor architectures, share it with others or market it."

The Future of Software Is Open Source from l0ckergn0me on Vimeo.

Electronic Artist Two: "O1001011 etc"

Contagious Paranoia

0100101110101101.ORG spreads a new computer virus

Conceived and compiled for the invitation to the 49th Venice Biennale, Biennale.py is both a computer virus and a work of art. The virus is made public and spread from the Slovenian Pavilion on the opening day of the exhibition, June the 6th 2001. Biennale.py becomes headline-hitting news, suddenly turning into an unprecedented performance, a controversial work of art revealing how media hysteria can be theoretically provoked and raised. Following the spreading of the virus, Symantec Corporation, world leader in Internet security technology, detects Biennale.py and starts the hunt. Eva, 0100101110101101.ORG's spokeswoman, says: «As part of an organization that produces art, my only responsibility is to be irresponsible».
