The Composing Rooms returns with IBN – BLUE CLOUD / 1991, a composite talk, screening and book launch on August 23 at 7pm.
While a video recording of BLUE CLOUD – a ’91 live broadcast performance by Dirk Paesmans of clouds floating listlessly through the sky accompanied by a bulletin board system – screens in the background, a simultaneous panel discussion will take place on the concept of net art.
Speakers include Karen Archey, curator of the Art Post-Internet group exhibition at UCCA, Paesmans of the JODI two-man video and WWW art collective, Berlin-based artist Niko Princen, as well as the technology writer + artist Renee Carmichael.
Concurrent with the screening and panel discussion is the launch of BlueCloud – Live Transmission, a hard-back 160-page book created by Paesmans and published by THISISAMAGAZINE, and consisting of a collection of screen images of cryptic WWW language set against the backdrop of swirling blue clouds taken from the BLUE CLOUD broadcast.
