Welcome back (to the future?)

I have used this space before to comment on the fascinating museological experiment that is the Adobe Museum of Digital Art, replacing conventional museum associations of preservation and permanence with the ephemeral and intangible. This recent conversation held at Art Basel between Melissa Chiu of the Asia Society Museum, Adobe Museum curator Tom Eccles, and media artist Moriko Mori provides an accessible means of thinking about how technology not only alters the experience of observing art, but also provides vast options for rethinking modes of display.

I like Eccles’ interest in drawing on artists who use technologies in their work without making technology the subject matter or nodal point of the project. The comments on process are also intriguing, as the museum follows the development of a project from conception to “execution”; something that to my mind could effectively recast “process” as artistic performance.

In ShinyArt land, Jan 12th marks the openings of District 30 and Dive Bar in Sacramento, prestigious high-concept clubs which will be featuring our own ShinyArt artwork! More to come about this event as well as our own launch party slated to take place early in the new year.  Get ready to celebrate!
