France Culture : Place de la toile

I’m invited on France Culture, Place de la toile: Art et internet.

Les artistes contemporains ont, depuis plusieurs années, saisi à pleines mains les nouveaux médias. Nouveaux supports, ils remettent en question la notion même d’original, et la circulation de la production artistique est complètement redéfinie. Internet est aussi un vaste réservoir de références à portée de la main, qui nourrissent la production de l’artiste, dont la forme explose pour ne plus appartenir à aucune discipline classique.

WMMNA : Interview

Christophe Bruno is a French net-artist (yes, like in net.art) based in Paris. His mostly web-related work deals a lot with questions related to language and has been widely shown. He gained a lot of recognition for his “AdWords-Happening” with which he has won a honorable mention at the 2003 Ars Electronica. He’s had his first solo-show at the gallery Sollertis in Toulouse and recently he was invited to Transmediale 06, where his “Human Browser” attacked the unsuspecting art-crowd with her googled ramblings. Being so prolific and funny, it’s about time that we take a closer look at Monsieur B!
