What is Cyberart?

A question that inspires an entire immersive project at LEA12. Asmita Duranjaya and Sable Snakeappletree explore the term “Cyberart” through thoughtful debate and complex layers of text, images, sounds, and space. Their “Paradise of CyberPolis” not only contains examples of multiple artists work, but are at the same time contained by artwork as the sim itself is a creative installation, and immersive narrative game in itself. Together these elements provoke a curiosity towards how cyberart is understood and experienced.

I think of “Cyberart” as a creative process, or event, that happens when man meets machine, that creative dance that emerges as the two collide, online, intertwining in an intermedial space that is experienced uniquely for each of us. Cyberart is open to our feedback and reflection, and to our collective collaboration, manifesting into the most subtle discrepancies or into a significantly alternative experience.

Cyberart, as a term and a creative practice, is perceived and expressed differently through the imagination of these artists, who are currently exhibiting their answers to Asmita Duranjaya’s question at LEA12:

Bloom

Gracie Kendal’s Bloom, at LEA22, originally titled “Ce n’est pas encore une peinture.

“The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.” 

Chuck Palahniuk – Choke

“A great thunderstorm of sound gushed from the walls. Music bombarded him at such an immense volume that his bones were almost shaken from their tendons; he felt his jaw vibrate, his eyes wobble in his head.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Surreal Exquisite C[yber]orpse

Surreal games inspiring cyber culture

A player writes a phrase on a piece of paper, covers part of it with a fold, then passes it on to the next player, who repeats the process, passing it on to another player. The final result is a surreal merge of the players collective imaginations, an Exquisite Corpse.

Initially exquisite corpses emerged as a playful game in the form of poems, and soon evolved into a continuous interchange between the poetic and the pictorial. The co-existing Dada attitude further provoked tensions between word and image, to free them from their ordinary usages.

Exquisite corpses have inspired digital creativity; online experiments and Iphone apps, exquisite corpses that play with words, images, and sounds..

And then there’s that Exquisite Corpse that found its way into virtual space:

Im personally not a fan of zombie-fiction/popculture, but I’m happy to see that exquisite corpses are still alive, and slowly, quietly, more of them are coming.
