The concept of the network is spreading, and the line between reality and dream is becoming more illusive.
Take a look, for example, at Ei Wada’s Braun Tube Jazz Band. This is the visual and the digital crashing into each other in an explosion of obsolete electronics. This is digital art made on analog equipment with physical input.
Or watch the dreamlike footage of Painting Reality. These are the real streets of Berlin, painted with a network of activity reminiscent of flight patterns.
This, to me, is what is great about our time period. We are expanding our creation into every possible area. We are pulling together ideas from disparate parts of the patchwork quilt of human intelligence with the help of new technologies, and we are creating art that speaks of the past as it signals the future.
