What’s the state of the modern myth? How do myths proliferate, what do we use to represent them, and what’s the cultural value of storytelling? #FUTUREMYTH presents digital artists engaged in contemporary myth-making who are using the gallery as a way to navigate, define, and discuss the current landscape of mythology and its relevance in our technologically dependent lives.
Participating artists include: Kari Altmann, Matthew Arkell, Iain Ball, Enrico Boccioletti, Manuel Bürger, Sterling Crispin, Claire L. Evans, Ryan Whittier Hale, Erin Henry, Emily Jones, Taylor Kuffner, Paul Laffoley, Kareem Lotfy, Jonas Lund + Sebastian Schmieg, Einar Öberg, Rafaël Rozendaal, Jasper Spicero, Tanner Family, and Clement Valla + Erik Berglin.
I couldn’t resist. Here’s some similar work to what Kyle McDonald and I contributed to DVD Dead Drop Vol. 5 compiled by Ole Fach & Kim Asendorf (http://fa-g.org/).
They are sets of texture maps from Nokia’s 3d maps found at here.com. These are really large images so I’ve included a zoom.
If you want to get the full-res images or see more, you’ll have to get out to Queens and Burn a DVD on the Dead Drop.

Fach & Asendorf Gallery debuted online in 2011 with these words:
The Internet, it is everywhere. It is here, it is there and it is where you actually are. It is so huge that nobody ever could print it. It is so deep that no one ever would dive to its end. There is peace and war in it, love and hate and all between. Once you have traveled through it, you will never forget, and you will come back, asap.
Since then, Fach & Asendorf Gallery has served 24 online exhibitions of digital and net art to more than 28,000 unique visitors. To celebrate the beginning of their third season, Fach & Asendorf Gallery presents BEST OF, an enormous collection of unreleased and exclusive work by 83 artists from around the world spanning a broad range of formats including applications, videos, and animated GIFs. BEST OF is a whole week of Internet on DVD.

Collect the WWWorld: The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age
Oct 18 2012- Nov 04 2012
Opening Hours: 7:00PM – 10:00PM
Curated by Domenico Quaranta
Collect the WWWorld: The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age is an attempt to show how art responds to the information society. The last decade has witnessed an incredible growth in the production and distribution of images and cultural contents. The availability of inexpensive production tools has seen an exponential rise in amateur creativity, while the Internet provides a new distribution platform for this kind of production, which previously remained private. The show investigates the impact of this process on art practices and on the role of the artist, who more and more evolves into a filter, a collector, an archivist, a post-producer of already existent cultural material.
Furthermore, Collect the WWWorld sets out to demonstrate how the Internet generation is implementing and developing a practice started in the Sixties by Conceptual Art, and further developed in subsequent decades in the forms of Appropriation Art and postproduction: the practice of exploring, collecting, archiving, manipulating and reusing huge amounts of cultural material produced by popular culture and advertising.
Collect the WWWorld is a show first produced by the Link Center for the Arts of the Information Age and already presented, in different versions, at Spazio Contemporanea, Brescia (Italy) in September 2011 and at the House of Electronic Arts Basel (Switzerland) in March 2012. The presentation at 319 Scholes will feature a number of new artists and works in a brand-new arrangement. The show relies on an ongoing research project that can be followed online at http://collectheworld.linkartcenter.eu.
The show will also include a reading area with the catalogue of the show, other books by Link Editions, artist books, texts, and catalogues that provided inspiration for the show. The exhibition will serve as the launch for Ryan Trecartin’s Ryan’s Web 1.0, a new e-book that features his W Magazine set as well as documentation of the research that went into the piece, which will be free for download in PDF format.
Participating artists include: Alterazioni Video, Kari Altmann, Gazira Babeli, Kevin Bewersdorf, Aleksandra Domanovic, Constant Dullaart, Elisa Giardina Papa, Travis Hallenbeck, Jason Huff, JODI, Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied, Eva and Franco Mattes, Oliver Laric, Jon Rafman, Ryder Ripps, Evan Roth, Ryan Trecartin, Brad Troemel, Penelope Umbrico, and Clement Valla.
