‘Data Murmur’ by Warren Neidech

'Data Murmur' by Warren Neidich.
1 April 2013

Berlin and LA-based artist Warren Neidich has added his part to the Great Internet Chatter with notable Italian political philosopher Franco “Bifo” Berardi playing mouth-piece, literally. A highly conceptual artist currently focussed on cognitive capitalism, this recent work uses a split screen to zoom in on Berardi reciting a random poem of HTML code.

With one side filmed at a distance, the other close up, Neidich explores the very animalistic reality of man in cyberspace that no amount of coding and programming can hide. Its asynchronous cadence making things disjointed and feel not quite right. How’s that for an opinion?**

Art13 @ Olympia Grand Hall reviewed.

Art13. East Meets West.
8 March 2013

Behold, Art13 has launched in London; a new global art fair, with dealers from Eastern and Western provinces united in a celebration of art, performance and VIP lounges. Based under the roof of the Olympia in Kensington this spawn of Art HK, complete with its own ‘down to business’ title (its Art14 next year), made headlines this weekend as the destination of tween band One Direction’s Harry Styles, the usual Charles Saatchi collector figures and a back-slapping feat of 24,735 visitors over the three-day event.
