May 24 2001, Toronto, Canada - Human beings have been interpreting their
environments since before the caves at Alta Mira. Itís human nature to
react to anything new by some form of recreation; music, art, architecture
and technology are only a few media. Without responding to whatís come
before, no culture can grow or evolve.
As Michael Mandiberg works through the evolution of Walker Evans and Sherrie
Levine, AfterMichaelMandiberg is a statement of recreation as a new mutation
of digital art and technology.
To accomplish what? Perhaps to open the discussion of what art is in the
digital age. Should digital expressionism also be an open source platform?
Or perhaps simply to acknowledge how this technology presents a new set of
options for the next stains on the cave walls. Badur Ramji
