NEW WRITING: on the publication "Biomediale"
BY: Ignacio Nieto

Usually, countries belonging to advanced Capitalism are the ones that expose, promote, and publish new art movements. When I talk about emergent art movements, I mean the ones that, in their art production, handle some new technology that is representative of the time period in which the work is produced. However, there are always exceptions to the rule. In the case of Biomediale, an extensive 500-page, bi-lingual publication (Russian-English) edited by Dmitry Bulatov, curator of the National Center of Contemporary Art, Kaliningrad, Russia, it exposes the impact of the new bio/genetic technologies via different social, historical, and philosophical aspects, as well and how these technologies remark on emergent strategies of art production.

Generalmente los paises que pertencen al capitalismo avanzado son los que exponen, promueven
y publican movimientos artisitico emergentes. Cuando hablo de grupos artisiticos emergentes me refiero
a los que, en su que hacer de produccion artistica manejan algun nueva técnica que sea representativa
del tiempo en que la obra constituida como tal. Sin embargo siempre hay excepciones a la regla.
Es el caso de por ejemplo de la publicacion: Biomediale editada por Dmitry Bulatov, curador del Centro
Nacional de Arte Contemporáneo de Kaliningrad Rusia. Donde en un extenso libro de 500 paginas en edicion
bilingue (rusa-inglesa) expone el impacto de las nuevas tecnologias bio/geneticas en diferentes
aspectos: sociales, historicos, filosoficos, y cómo estas nuevas tenologias reprecuten en emergentes
estrategias de la produccion artisitica.

A textural overlay of color, form and sound, the projects "squee" and "framina"compose the site snarg.net. Simple and ridiculous, these works open up a sensual playfulness that is often avoided or felt frivolous in light of the weighter global issues attacked by net artists. Yet ther import is subtle. The aesthetic content of many sites is sublimated or forgotten, dominated by data-driven and conceptual models. But there can be so much meaning generated in the pause engendered by poetic forms. These small and repetative works made me engage and cavort in their post-lingual space; contemplating color, movement, and rhythym in search of beauty and passing time.
