Turbulence Spotlight: "MrsCoryArcangel.com" by Scarlet Electric

Part fansite, part cultural critique, part exercise in stalking,
"MrsCoryArcangel.com" is a website devoted to Cory Arcangel. Featuring
animated gifs, collage, and textured backgrounds, "MrsCoryArcangel.com"
embraces an aesthetic deemed by Arcangel as "dirt style." Dirt style, as
Arcangel defines it, is the "true spirit of the web." The site includes
interpretations of Arcangel's projects-instead of endless SuperMario clouds,
Princess Toadstool endlessly waiting for Mario. Instead of Number of the
Beast compressed 666, the song 500 Miles by the Proclaimers compressed 500


"Scarlet Electric" is the work of Rachelle Beaudoin and Jeanne Jo. Recent
graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design's Digital+Media department,
their collaborative work responds to the Internet and Internet Culture. They
create physical manifestations of online spaces -- wearable,
technology-based art objects. Their work has been shown in New York City at
Conflux: The art and technology festival for the creative exploration of
urban public space; in Dallas, Texas, at Social Fabrics: An Exhibition of
Wearable, Mobile, and Socially Engaged Art, sponsored by CAA and the
Leonardo Education Forum; at the University of Lapland in Finland; and at
the RISD New England Alumni Biennial 2009.
