<nettime-ann> [ann] db:ae – aesthetics of data basis

EXHIBITION: db:ae – aesthetics of data basis
ARTISTS: Michael Aschauer (A), UMATIC (NL), Robert Luxemburg (D), Jan 
Gerber (D)
CURATOR: Zeljko Blace
VENUE: Galerija Galzenica, Velika Gorica/Zagreb; 
DATE: September 22 - October 12, 2008


The international exhibition "db:ae – aesthetics of data basis" deals 
with works of the artists who use new  ways of systematic analysis and 
presentation of digital media with the help of computer data basis.

Michael Aschauer (Austria), group UMATIC (the Netherlands), Robert 
Luxemburg  and Jan Gerber (Germany) use archives (primarily of sound and 
video) and their metadata (descriptions and frames of references) in 
order to extend the perception boundaries from linear and chronological 
to systematic and hypermedia.However, the results of questionnaires 
applied to their data basis are not presentations of financial 
transactions’ statistics, business trends or material resources. They 
are sounds of imaginary journeys, images of non-existing landscapes or 
abstract graphics emerged from overlapping of the film materials.

Michael Aschauer exhibits works about systematic filming of the banks of 
the river Nile (http://nilestudies.net) and computer-generated 
landscapes that resulted from daily and weekly changes’ observation
(http://m.ash.to/ {AT} / {AT} /Projects/24-7).

Jan Gerber and Sebastijan Lutgert present their artwork on 
http://www.0xdb.org film basis created for the needs of Berlin pirate 
cinema program and on www. Pad. ma web application used for manipulation 
of the Indian activist documentaries’ video archive.

Group UMATIC i.e. Derek Holzer presents the web project of DIY virtual 
sound space journey through the web metaphor of an aeroplane flight 
(http://www.soundtransit.nl) as well as gallery-based installation of 
slides, images and sound recordings.

The additional introduction to the artists and the concept together with 
the open discussion will be held at net-club Mama (17 Preradovićeva St., 
Zagreb) at 7 p.m. on 23rd September 2008. Furthermore, the projections 
of www.Pirate Cinema.org. will be held at the same place on 24th 
September 2008.
