When art becomes data when data becomes art
Sharing more than ninety American-based authors
Showing artworks from more than fifty artists
Twenty-six databases to explore
Fourteen active labs to acknowledge
Sixteen social networks on the move
And a playlist of 32 musicians to enjoy
It all started in Europe and America by the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries and went on as parallel worlds since the end of WW1 (1914-1918). Asian influences entered the Western visual culture, if not before, during Impressionism, and went deeper into American culture after WW2.
This is a show about the fusion between art, life, and technology in the American continent, since the middle of the 1960s. By and large, it is a database collage that can be explored as a labyrinth (also a homage to Jorge Luis Borges), or as the Mammoth Cave mapped by Patricia and William Crowther! Though a personal view, a manifold of possibilities is offered for study and interpretation. This show is also a tribute to the fundamental participation of women in the world of art and technology. I owe to Claire L. Evans a decisive bending on the investigation that supports the coherence of this curatorial work.
