[Nettime-bold] Universal Page: bookchin_shulgin


The Universal Page
Natalie Bookchin + Alexei Shulgin
http://universalpage.org

>From the start of the new millennium onward, all public content on the
World
Wide Web has come together for the first time in history to form the
single
largest collaboration ever known to humankind. This collaboration,
known as
The Universal Page, is the objective average of all content on the Web
merged together as a one. Internet citizens are invited to join
together to
witness the consummation of global collectivity.

A special script crawls and searches the entire Web, analyzing and
processing current data and generating an average according to precise
algorithms. In order to keep up with the pace of the always changing
Web,
the Universal Page is continuously updated in real time.

A proclamation and manifestation of the utopian dream of world unity
and the
realization of democratic global communication, the Universal Page
articulates the historic and momentous effects of constant flows of
creation, communication, exchange, collectivity, connectivity and
interactivity where no one with a computer and a modem is excluded, no
one
with a web server is unheard, and no one with a software client is
ignored.
This ultimate commemorative living magnum opus utilizes the work, play
and
input of ever single participant, human and robotic, of the World Wide
Web,
and mandates a universal commitment to a unified peaceful new
millennium,
where subjects of the world will live together in shared harmony.

The Universal Page is a pulsating, living monument commemorating no
single
individual or ideology but instead, celebrating the global collective
known
as the World Wide Web. The Universal Page offers the world a once in a
lifetime opportunity to join together in honoring and observing our
networked past, present and future as it boldly initiates our entry
into the
new millennium.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
The Universal Page is open for public viewing on the occasion of the
Walker
Art Center exhibition "Art Entertainment Network/Let's Entertain".
Funded by
the Jerome Foundation and the Walker Art Center, the project was first
envisioned and is now being orchestrated by Natalie Bookchin and
Alexei
Shulgin. Both are artists, theorists of the Internet and professors of
contemporary art and new media. Bookchin is an American based in Los
Angeles, in the United States of America and Shulgin is a Moscow based
Russian Artist.
Programming: Alexander Nikolaev, Fund of Perspective Research, Moscow.
