Incident has just launched their exhibition "DRAPE (look under "hors series > drape"), the fourth exhibition in their series resulting from a call for participation through mailing lists. The theme for the exhibition (drape/curtain) is as the last two have been, founded in classical art themes yet exhibited here (obviously) in new media forms. It's as the 'collective' incident say: "C'est un sujet d'cole", (its a subject of art school) associated with life drawing classes where ideas such as texture and gravity are foremost to the composition yet (note the irony!) have little ground in new media--and so makes the subject more challenging and less restraining. A fifth call for works will be made under the theme of "NATURE MORTE" (dead nature) soon, so keep an eye on those mailing lists.

Living in a world of idiots? Feeling disconnected and isolated? Maybe you're just wondering what you could possibly have in common with every other human being in the world. Hint: We all dream.

TCUP- The Collective Unconsciousnes Project by Simon King and Josh Dahl attempts to connect us all together through dream images and metaphors. They've created a vast data base of dreams that allows you to travel in a non-linear way from dream to dream with words as the connectors. The site constantly grows in size and connectivity as more dreams are added.
Check out the interface design, spontaneous transitions, and color usage.

Artists: Simon King and Josh Dahl

Minneapolis and St. Paul are East African cities. Part of Julie Mehretu's year long artist-in-residency project at the Walker Art Center 'Minneapolis and St.Paul are East African cities' is an interactive map, revealing the stories, daily lives and personal histories of East African youths of the twin cities. Created by Entropy8Zuper, this poignant piece mirrors Mehretu's painting process, which examines identity, geography and personal/cultural history. As you traverse the map, your route is plotted, and the students' stories are revealed as text, image and audio.
