Collage: Digital on Wood and Paper.
In early '90, before Internet, Google, Facebook and Mobile phones changed our lives, at the times when only Geeks owned computers, a growing tribe of good willing hackers, artists and activists founded the last Avant-garde movement of the 20st Century - net.art
We were building an equitable community in which art was conspicuously present in our everyday activities and goals, exploiting the characteristics peculiar to the Internet, like immediacy and immateriality.
With immateriality comes fugacity, reminding us on our own transitoriness. Being primary a visual artist I created this tangible compositions to perpetual preserve an encoded essence of the net.art.
I called them Tangible net.art and this one is about a The Book of the Dead, which I presented at Casa das rosas web.art contest in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
