Poéticas de la conectividad – Carta blanca a... Juan Martin Prada

► Hiperexposición
El segundo núcleo temático, Hiperexposición, aborda los procesos de espectacularización de la intimidad y el progresivo abandono de la privacidad en todos los órdenes, en un momento en el que cada vez somos menos capaces ya de entenderla y valorarla. Y lo hace a través de dos obras. Por un lado, la titulada Sprkelles (2009) de Petra Cortright, en la que se establece una correlación poética entre la “sobreexposición” mediática del individuo que es tan habitual en nuestra época y el concepto de “sobreexposición” en sentido fotográfico, jugando irónicamente con una estrategia de ocultamiento a través de un gesto, precisamente, de excesiva claridad, de “sobreexposición” a la luz. Por otra parte, en Flashings in the mirror (2009), Jasper Elings tematiza nuestro continuo deseo de autorrepresentación, del auto-producirnos como imagen de cara a nuestra socialización on line, así como la condición siempre “circulatoria” de las imágenes que compartimos en Internet.

JunkJet no5 – fanzine for electronics and aesthetics

ijunk_jet_5_jasper-elings

► Junk Jet has developed an archive impossible that ­trans­ports, in print format, net based works, or ­fragments of works showing collections, series, animations, applications, and reflecting anti-heart texts on the net and its new forms of art,design, and architecture.

N°5, the net.heart issue, has transferred internet things from their digital space into a paper jet. This transportation procedure relies on documents in a similar way as the museum relies on photograph and video documenting performance arts.

And Junk Jet believes that thisanalogue documentation is in no way inferior to pseudo-preserving techniques of data migration, emulation, or reprogramming.

At the end, Junk Jet says: Transportation is not so much about the artwork as object, but rather about the indication of the subjective decision of the artist. In this sense Junk Jet is a Russian conceptualist.
