Twit Dress

...the necklace was a digital sign displaying messages that her fans were writing on to her Twitter profile. Those tweets were relayed to her jewellery through a wireless router -- equipment that provides an internet connection -- embedded inside her black dress.


Vending Machine Art

What is an Art-o-mat?
Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art. There are 82 active machines in various locations throughout the country. What do you get from an Art-o-mat? The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art. What an easy way to become an art collector. http://www.artomat.org/


In Minneapolis, the mission of Altered Esthetics' art vending machine is to make affordable artwork from local, national, and international artists accessible to everyone. Altered Esthetics' art vending machine is also a great opportunity to help artists promote and expose their artwork to the public.

Even book arts are available in vending machines ... Read this blog

Digital Art Exhibits at Winter Olympics


CODE: Connect. Create. Collaborate.
The Cultural Olympiad's digital edition, CODE stakes out a space in the digital realm where audiences and artists can connect, create and collaborate. Code Live is an 18-day, landmark event with visual art exhibitions, music and performances fuelled by digital technology and audience involvement. It begins February 4 and runs through February 21.


Montreal-based electronic artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer creates interactive installations that seek to provide critical platforms for public participation. Using 20 large robotic searchlights around English Bay, the canopy of the Vancouver sky is transformed by the local audience or individuals worldwide who design their own patterns via a website.


See if you can participate...
Q: When I can I send a design?
A: Designs will officially be accepted from February 4 to 28, 2010. There may be a beta test period a couple of days before illumination to ensure everything functions properly. Please return to vancouver2010.com/code to participate.


2010 Whitney Biennial

2010Biennial at the Whitney Museum in NYC

Inside Art
Reality Leaves a Fingerprint on the Biennial
Published: December 11, 2009
In these recessionary times, the 2010 edition of the Whitney Biennial will be smaller than it has been in recent years, with just 55 artists.

Current digital arts exhibitions are accessible here, as are past exhibitions, such as the Whitney Biennial Internet art projects. A collection area archives the works of net art and digital art in the Whitney Museum's holdings, including Douglas Davis' The World's First Collaborative Sentence, the first work of Internet art acquired by the Whitney Museum in 1995.
