Andy Deck has been making art software, public art for the internet,
1990. Deck's collaborative drawing spaces, game-like search engines,
problematic interfaces and informative art resist generic categorisation:
uses the internet, the gallery and public space to challenge corporate
control over communication, tools and software, and by extension the
imagination. Deck works with the web using the sites; artcontext.net,

He has received online commissions from New Radio and Performing Arts,
Rhizome.org, the Whitney Artport and the Tate, and exhibited
at: Machida City Museum, ZKM, PS1, Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona,
Walker Art Center and Ars Electronica.

Andy Deck's solo show, 'Open Vice/Virtue: The Online Art Context' runs
HTTP Gallery from 9 March - 22 April 2006.
Preview: Thursday 9 March 7 - 9pm.

Part of the NODE.London season of media arts. www.nodel.org

Works on display at the Dana Centre include:

Open Studio:
An online graphic software which allows for public
contributions.  Visitors can go online, create a drawing, and have the
option to save the drawing.  The website acts as a databank for all
contributions, which can be seen animated on the site.  
Consists of online 'groupware' for poster illustration and layout
accessible through a computer workstation installed in the gallery
This piece provides a framework for visitors/participants to launch a
personal poster campaign based on their own social and political
Visitors can use the software to create their own poster in
with their online counterparts.

A free space on the Web that presents visitors with an
open-ended interplay of words and pictures. What you do with your
and mouse determines what appears on the screen and what subsequent
see and read. It sets up a fluid correspondence between keystrokes and
blocks of colour. For example, when you type "dog," the word "dog"
and so does a series of three colour blocks. Icontext also works on
levels, allowing visitors to collaborate with each other and to upload,
archive, and reconfigure "icontexts."

An online collaborative drawing project. A large-scale
projection forms an evolving graffiti wall and visitors to the space are
invited to edit and add graphical units or 'glyphs', which compose the
image, in real time.
