[Nettime-nl] A Vision in Delft Blue

Net Art News, September 3, 2003
A Vision in Delft Blue

Dutch artist Hugo Kaagman adorns his site with an array of images and
animations whose palette of Delft blue and white evoke his country's
history. The shuttling between traditional symbols, such as windmills and
animals, and radically contemporary ones, an Internet Explorer icon and a
rollerskate, is matched by an old-fashioned, canvas-like interface that
features clickable animations. Though the blue and white site is formally
precious and appealing, many of its animations are rooted in a sense of
irony about the cliches of historic official culture. Also, net art
collectors will be happy to know that Kaagman's works are for sale. Details,
in blue and white, on the site. -- Rachel Greene is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. If you value this free
