Sculpture: Ceramic on Ceramic.
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 cup is an extreme rare artifact. It is dedicated to INFOS 2000 off-line net.art contest I curated. There are faces of all members of the exhibition, who dared to show their real identity.
