Recently, the Internet has replaced traditional art institutions as the main platform production and distribution of art. Modern communication tools and information flows not only allow, but force the artist to work in the “big art world”.
This condition allows to move away from local art battles and provincial problems. To focus on the research and work with concepts such as “digital free”, unimpeded exchange of knowledge, “new copyright”, different codes, overcoming the boundaries of corporeality, new sensual experiences and to work actively with the graphical virtual neural network algorithms.
“… there is another question: who is the audience of the Internet? They may not be separate people. But God for this is also not required: the Internet is a big, but finite. In fact, the audience of the Internet known to us is the algorithm like those used by Google or the NSA.” Boris Groys
“Today desire of non-identity, outputting of the artist outside of his historical context, we are more interested than that context. And I think that the Internet gives us more opportunities for comprehension and understanding artistic strategies are not identical, rather than the traditional archives and institutions.”
