New Work 2004: Source Code Images

most, 1996/2004, inkjet pigment print on paper 80 x 120 cm

"Melissa is the first combination Word macro virus and worm to use the Outlook and Outlook Express address book to send itself to others via E-mail. "

Source code from the Melissa virus is placed over a digitally altered photograph of the Ottoman bridge of Visegrad, Bosnia, famously described in Ivo Andric's novel Bridge on the River Drina, suggesting a somewhat darker side to the bridge as an architectural and/or communicative element.

rollover, 2000/2004, inkjet pigment print on canvas 70 x 100 cm

The text here is a fragment from the javascript code for a rollover or mouseover.

agni, 2000/2004, inkjet pigment print on canvas 80 x 120 cm

A digitally reworked photograph, taken in Romania in 1997, is covered with a fragment of HTML source code from a website about the influence of Hindu traditions on Roma culture.

the EMPIRE series, 2003

This series explores the `time resistance’ of three media: photography, painting and television. The immediate subject of the series is the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March/April 2003. The images are photographs taken of BBC broadcasts during the war. The inclusion of the TV screen, as well as the BBC logo, remind the viewer that she is watching a (historical) event indirectly. This is very much what the Canadian writer Michael Ignatieff referred to during the earlier (first) gulf war as the TV or `virtual war’. The viewer often has access to events in real time, although in an often sanitised and always virtual form.

By the use of digital filters the images have been altered so as to appear like paintings. They have `virtual’ paint strokes, and are printed on canvas. They are in effect photographs of TV images masquerading as counterfeit paintings. As such they point to photography’s intermediate and mediating role between the ephemeral character of television images and the eternal aspect of history painting.

the kasimir series: a new net.art piece by Christian de Lutz

Among the urban myths that have predominated since 9-11 is the belief that Al-Qaeda hid secret messages in data, which they then sent over the net. As far as I know this is only a myth. Yet it dovetails with all the 'chatter' about encryption, hacking and the famed 'echelon' intelligence gathering system. In my kasimir series I have taken up this conceit. I have hidden two secret messages in two HTML files, masquerading as abstract images. One is a quick note to Denisa Kera. The second is a letter to Yuri Albert, describing my experiences taking part in his performance in Berlin in January 2004.

Should anyone fail to find the message I have enclosed a 'note' to the piece. All three pages can be accessed through my net.art portal http://net.cdelutz.net
