Subject: WSSOHWTE? All on the net

Announcement of new online art project:


www.wssohwte.net  is the  WWWshow of “Who Says Seeing Only Happens With The Eyes?”

www.wssohwte.net  is an online art catalogue and interactive site. It shows works of art by Anne Lise Stenseth, Toril Rygh (Norway), Martin Walde (Austria), Paul Devens, Wapke Feenstra and Zeger Reyers (the Netherlands); and essays about artistic space by Maaike Engelen, Sandra Fauconnier, Domeniek Ruyters, Renée van de Vall, Kristine Kolrud, Trond K.O. Kristoffersen and Tor Andreas Gitlesen.

With www.wssohwte.net the Web is utilized to explore and show the area between an exhibition catalogue and the interactive possibilities of the Internet. Experiences and recordings of visits to the ‘wssohwte?’ exhibitions at TENT. in Rotterdam, the Netherlands (August 16. through September 17. 2001), and at Galleri F15 in Moss, Norway (November 24. 2001 through January 13. 2002) have been turned into a website, which fits in with other sites representing art, but also tries to be innovative in its offering of Internet experiences that are not solely of a representational nature.

In several essays specifically written for this site the artistic spaces taken up and evoked by ‘wssohwte?’ are being addressed, e.g.: the ‘white cube’ , the mental space of the exhibition and the artistic space of the Internet.

www.wssohwte.net is created by graphic designer Ariënne Boelens (Rotterdam, the Netherlands), by translating information into communication. For the development of this site she received a designer-project grant from the BKVB Fund in Amsterdam.
