Untitled: Archive (migration ) 无题:文献(迁移)

Untitled: Archive (migration), consists of a large body of images taken from an organic, growing archive collected from books, the Internet and other publicly accessible sources. It started as a way to look at how migration has been represented in images over the last couple of centuries, in order to work on the building-up of scenes in Åsdam’s films; but it grew and took on its own syntax and logic. The material ranges from the obvious and explanatory to images that are more surprising or tangential and associative. As the archive grew it gained a sub-theme of adaptation to change. An interrelationship among the pictures, presented independently of their original contexts, is formed where connections, similarities and differences arise across their varied origins. A snapshot cross-section of the recent history of change, conflict, the dramatic and the mundane — often within the same images.

无题:文献(迁移),是Knut选择的一个项目,这个项目涉及到3000张以上的图片,艺术家强调了选择这些图片的意义,以及那些图片可能解释其思考节点,如同一个巨大云图,几乎涉及了诸多今天关于文化、宗教、政治的冲突现场,而艺术家仅仅是提供这些图像吗?他将这些看作历史的重要时刻来保藏——特别响;特别近。这可能是认识伤痛以及共享情感现实的方式,当这些图片成为覆盖、阻挡视线的障碍时,也许会让人思考,现实是什么?我在哪里?所有这些图像都伴随着搜索引擎,提供了更复杂的关于迁移这一概念,计算机和行为方式的收集整理,也正在形成超越人类创造词汇的知识边界,Knut将这一情况呈现,如同一个有着网瘾的人,希望持续的通过这些图像激发思考关于现实社会的潜在危机或想象力。——李振华

Trilogy by Chris Paul Daniels

Daniels presents three short sequences documenting the specific viewpoints from hotel rooms where he stayed in Hong Kong, Chongqing and Macau.

These films attempt to process the rapid movements and energies from the immediate environments briefly observed by the artist.

The frenetic action of the metropolitan spaces rapidly shifts between day and night and expose the scale of the collective habitats within view. Trilogy by Chris Paul Daniels

The Random Darknet Shopper

online / offline robotic project

2014

The Random Darknet Shopper is an automated online shopping bot which we provide with a budget of $100 in Bitcoins per week. Once a week the bot goes on shopping spree in the deep web where it randomly choses and purchases one item and has it mailed to us. The items are shown in the exhibition «The Darknet. From Memes to Onionland» at Kunst Halle St. Gallen. Each new object ads to a landscape of traded goods from the Darknet. The Random Darknet Shopper 自由黑暗网络买手
