November 16th, 2011
BitCoinCloud is a New Media Arts Installation, featured in the Künstlerhaus Wien. 16.11.2011 – 16.02.2012, free entry.
The cooperation between CC and JMAF has been established during the »Japan – Austria Year 2009«. It opened the opportunity to exchange emerging artistic projects, ideas and cultural references and led to a rich network of creative contents and project-based interactions between artists, scientists, designers and the participating audience. This year it is a great op- portunity to collaborate again at the ISEA2010 in the Cultural Capital of Europe Ruhr. It is the first time to realize a collaborative show with celected artists from each festival.
The exhibition of “CODED CULTURES - Exploring Creative Emergences” is presenting international artworks and projects related to the four sub-topics of the festival: Designing Complexity, Assembling Things, Expanding Locality and Creating Proto-Culture.
The presented positions from Japan, Austria and Europe are distinguished by creative practices which explore new forms of media integrated delineation- and knowledge-cultures. By this means they are situated on the intersection of disciplines and have actively integrated different cultural fields in their artistic development.
The exhibition was developed within the course of Dr. Georg Russegger at the department of “Transmedia Arts”. Related to the context of CODED CULTURES and the »Austria-Japan Year 2009« the aim was to explore contents and practices of creative self-design and self-organization, to raise questions about binational cooperations of artists and artistic projects.
