Silent Cry @ Visions in NYC
video
Silent Cry, 2016, 3:40

Short synopsis
Silent Cry is the visualization of an internal cry happening all the time, when society does not allow to show deep emotional affection. The silent cry is always present caused by never ending traumatizations during decades hidden behind the facade people wants to see. And even if the cry would be be seen or heard, people would refuse to face it. The work release is giving sound a particular relevance.

    Art on the Net – 2001-2002-2003

    About the “Art on the Net” project

    The Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts, Tokyo (MCMOGATK) locates on the outskirts of Tokyo megalopolis. Its collection consists of 16000 of printed artworks from western and eastern world.

    The Museum is also notorious for its art festival on the Internet. It has been steering “Art on the Net,” a project using the Internet as a space for artistic expression. Since 1995, this project has been calling on artists around the world to think together what the relationship between the Internet and art could be. On the seventh year in 2002, under the theme “9.11,” we were able to see artists from 20countries taking part in the project. In the past seven years, technology and theme used for the project represented the changes and developments of the relationship between the art and the Internet.

    *Art Of Torture – Art against Torture – NCCA Kaliningrad (Russia)
    Seconds: Forever 2001

    ART OF TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS – ART AGAINST TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS

    THE CONCEPT

    The project “ART OF TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS – ART AGAINST TORTURES AND EXECUTIONS” represents the open social network art communication on the given problem exhibited and realised in different forms of human activity

    Open
    Free access of the participants in the project despite of the active invitation of separate persons. Besides the openness is considered by the network nature of the project, large format and medial level of the subject.

    Social
    The “sociality” is dictated by the actual problematic level of real life in notifying the phenomenon of tortures and execution. Strengthening of contrast in the world between polar anthropogenous formations occurs with larger acceleration, increasing a gap between them. On one pole there exists functional-mechanised technogenious type of a human being, on the other one – practically not even changed for elapsed millenniums the primitive societies. The space between them is occupied by a great deal of ethno-confessional groups; among the number of general factors unifying them the most significant and expressive ones are attributive-ritualised tortures and execution.

    The social aspects may include the verifying result received on the final stage of the project as statistically representation information about social-cultural human activity on the concrete item.

    Besides the conflict dual stand of the man as entities reasonable (Homo Sapience) is trusted to the basis of the project. On the one hand is the center of cruelty, it is most refined “machine” of violence and destruction; with another – is an institute of the law and protection, engaging problems of an ecology and preservation.

    Network
    Network – is the most friendly intermedial communicative shape of relationships and connections. In connection with the off-the-shelf delivery devices of the information, the mobility of obtaining of news, total propagation of networks on a civilized world are augmented of involving by the mass audience in possession of having the information (knowledge). And, simultaneously, there is an alignment of the privileges of the State in inviolability, obtaining, forwarding and broadcasting of the information.

    Art
    According to the definition the institutionalized Center for Contemporary Art initializing and bringing the given project to the society deals with art. Defining the project as art but not multicultural one and inviting to participate all creative and intellectual persons and collectives that are able to make art-reflection on the given problem actual in different spheres of the society, the author of the project is a field receptor and consequently the environment begins to react on it realizing in a form of art events. Locally artistic implementation of the topic in the supposed borders may vary, clone, mutate, dissolve and concretize in local discourse space.

    “Tortures and executions”
    It is senseless to philosophize by concept of violence as a category, the presence of which one is total in material life by virtue of natural or, if it is necessary, godhead–devilish origin.
    The urgency for society gains a phenomenon of the truly and extremely human invention of contextually-applied violence. Practicing, the most advanced professional hangman, are in step with technical advance, innovating the means and methods, reaching thus of perfection and efficiency in the process of tortures, and frequently and highest humanity, killing without excruciating and pain. Those are the dialectics of infiltration of technical advance in the most private and intimate fields of human or antihuman activity.

    “Art of tortures and execution”
    The subject of aggression and violence in the field of art can be attributed to a general place, to the main stream of the today’s art scene. The subject of aggression and violence in the field of art can be attributed to a general place, to the main stream of the today’s art scene. Only lazy one has not cut to itself veins publicly, or – it is even better – to the partner on the workshop. On the traditionally worn out problem: “Where is boundary between art and life?”, today even “not advanced” one, not at all intellectual responds: “Everywhere and anywhere” or “Where we’ll marked it, there also will be”.

    “Art against tortures and execution”
    Promoting the given subjects in public artistic consciousness the curators of the project again and again urge the participants of event to interpret design idea and through the creativity to call a public resonance in society against violence of anthropogenous origin.



    Art on the net


    There are different definitions what “netart” might be, the most plausible one is related to two aspects – art and net (net = Internet – net=network). For Agricola de Cologne netart has its right to exist only when the piece of art is based on Internet specific technology to be used therefore only when it is located on the net. The Internet means public space for them who have access to the net, and the work is accessible for free, in terms of without payment and/or password. Netart, however does not mean, that an artist has to be restricted to one certain topic – the Internet and related issues, including certain dogmatic ideologies. One has to consider the entire spectrum of art on the net, in order to find out, how artists find their individual use of art and the net.
    But in the year 2022, exactly this is not possible any longer for different reasons. Many of the artists active during the years 1998-2008 are not active any longer and not only the artists, but also their works vanished without any trace, but also all instances hosting such artworks and therefore also the hosted artworkes vanished from the net.

    Agricola de Cologne – the manifestation of “netart”

    But Agricola de Cologne did not vanish, despite the fact that the technology carrying his virtual existence during the first years vanished. As an art project himself, his virtual existence has to be considered primarily as netart, in so far his entire work as it is manifesting itself online, is representing “netart”.

    The failure of netart – the failure of technology

    But not only the artists and/or their art works vanished, but also the technology/software/plugins used at a certain time vanished due to the technological progress, software/browsers became obsolete and were replaced by mostly new, mostly incompatible applications. An artist using these technologies had to keep himself updated continuesly – offering new chances, but also disadvantages. Therefore, it would be better to discontinue using the term “netart”, at all.

    One crucial point of the technololy based art form “netart” is the technology, as such, or more precisely the fact, that especially the popular technology (software) was provided by commercial companies following their own commercial/monetary success and development, whiLe on the other hand all attempts failed to replace these commercial applications and their advanced technology through a licence-free technology. There was the contradiction between the conceptual ideas and the reality.

    Most, but not all artists creating art on the net were preferably using the software – Shockwave and Flash by Macromedia – until this software company and its software development was taken over by the competitor and software giant ADOBE, resulting the slow decline of this multi-media software, until both software applications/their support were discontinued after 2018 – so the work of thousands of artists active in the field of Internet based art can be considered as lost, as if it wouldn’t have existed ever.

    Concerning his comprehensive individual (smaller sized works, Agricola de Cologne created for the net, all were executed in Flash by Macromedia and therefore no work can be longer reviewed on the net. This is particularly good for the interactive works, but also for other ones developed in a linerar way like videos. However Agricola de Cologne’s Flash videos were mostly non-linear programmed and concerting them into linear video had to fail. For those linear works it was simple to convert them into current technologies like video mp4, all other non-linear developed works are affected from the art overkill ADOBE decided for.

    All the Flash based works however can be displayed and exhibited offline, this is also good for “The RRF Project”, for instance, but then these interactive works loose their status to be “netart” because the links to other Internet resources do not work any longer. There is remaining not even a simulation of the non-existing, while the shape/aesthetics of the artwork is still existing, but which out ony function, and therefore the previously used terminology “netart” is obsolete, as well, and one would better speak simply of multimedia works or forget all, at best, completely.

    But, the existence of AGRICOLA de Cologne did, of course, not depend on a certain technology. Already before the free-licenced blog technolgy became popolar, Agricola de Cologne recovered its potential amd started in 2005 by using the blog context WORDPRESS for the new “netEX Project” (calls & deadlines) as the first one – step by step the new “blogs” replaced the HTML- Flash enriched sites (projects), which allowed to use the interactive multi-media Flsah contents, until Flash was disabled. HTML 5 and mp4 became the video standard, while the potential of multi-media baseed interactivity, which Shockwave and Flash were famous for, got lost, at least for artistic use.

    The list below, however, incorporates primarily the smaller interactive and streaming netart pieces, which were mostly realized in the framework of larger project environments like “A Virtual Memorial” , for instance.

    Netart (2000-2007)
    The net based works – created during this period were programmed in Flash – are taken from the net and remain in quarantine, however, they can be presented in physical space in their original state on request.

    Violence Online Festival 2002-2005 (interactive)


    “Violence” is a New Media art project in form of an online festival reflecting the phenomenon of “Violence”, curated, organized and created in Flash by Agricola de Cologne, curator and media artist operating from Cologne/Germany. As an ongoing project Violence Online Festival is developed for being presented in future in the framework of physical and virtual media festivals and exhibitions. For each event a new project version will be created adjusted to the actual needs including additions of new artists/works and other changes.

    Preface:

    Violence is an expression of speechlessness, of lack of communication. The best solution to eliminate violence and confrontation is looking for communicating, dialogue and networking, starting already in the smallest cel of society family, which lead in consequence to openness against the different, tolerance. A good example on the way to that represents the net based art project – http://www.a-virtual-memorial.org – Memorial project against the Forgetting and for Humanity.” (by Agricola de Cologne, published as Article20 in – Covenant of the Articles of Artistic Mediation on World Mediation Summit Washington 2002 )
