my work at RAW CHINA EXPO 2013 during the ART ROTTERDAM period
今天figure out 2件事：
“When someone tells you that you can’t do something, perhaps you should consider that they are only telling you what they can’t do.”
“new media art niche”, but that would be better described as an art world in its own right, with its own institutions, professionals, discussion platforms, audience, and economic model, and its own idea of what art is and should be
“the three behaviours of interactivity, connectivity and computability”
“New media could never be understood from a strictly art-historical perspective: the history of technology and media sciences plays an equally important role in this art’s formation and reception. New media art requires media literacy.” (Paul 2008: 5).
Paul responds to this situation by painting a picture of a curator as less a caretaker of objects and more a mediator, interpreter or producer
that technology ultimately prevents new media art from being understood by the contemporary art audience.
It should be about bringing new media art to the art audience in a way that enables it to be accepted as art, and also obliges people to reconsider their preconceptions about what can be accepted as art. With or without technologies.
