Rhizome is dedicated to the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology. We support artists working at the furthest reaches of technological experimentation, as well as those responding to the broader aesthetic and political implications of new tools and media.

City of QR Codes

I examine bar codes, wondering what it would be like to have only laser sight. I stare at handwriting until the loops and whorls stop being words, syllables, and even letters, and become no more than manic pulses brain wave transformed into muscle twitch, traced in the seismograph of our ink-hemorrhaging prosthetic appendages. I gaze at my city streets, running my eyes over the scars on its knees, feeling a refracted rainbow of urban skin interring a personal history of human frailty. I have a polymorphously perverted sense of physical praxis with objects. It’s not that I’m more object-curious or infrastructurally dirty-minded than most; it’s just that once you start to think about what things are wearing underneath their exterior semiotic reality, it’s pretty hard to calm down. Thankfully, the city invites my oddly tactile greeting, smiling and warming to my touch. Scars are so much sexier than tattoos…

Before and After UbuWeb: A conversation about artists’ film and video distribution

image

Beginning in 2009, artist Jason Simon worked with media scholar Cynthia Chris to investigate various distribution channels for artists’ films and videos. This collaborative research has fed into Simon’s own work, which draws on curatorial, documentary, and installation practices to reflect on the same issues of moving image circulation. In this interview, curator and writer Jacob King discussed this research with Simon in relation to his recent solo exhibition at Callicoon Fine Arts in New York (Nov 10 - Dec 22, 2013).

On Affectionate Sabotage and Exemplary Suffering: An Audio Guide to Isa Genzken

image

Two writers currently participating in the Whitney Independent Study Program,Tyler Coburn and Hannah Black, walk through the Isa Genzken: Retrospective at New York’s Museum of Modern Art with Rhizome’s Community Manager Zachary Kaplan. In particular, we asked them to keep in mind Rhizome’s ongoing discussion of postinternet art (artworks in diverse media, particularly collage and assemblage, that can be seen as responses to a ubiquitous network culture). Their conversation worked both within and against this frame.
