Amongst the younger generation of computer animators, few know that they have a Swedish predecessor. Many engineers were probably working away in their cellars in those days, trying to do the same thing, but Sjolander was the first person to show his result on air. If any of you like to have a look at the Godfather of animation, you can find a glimpse of him by googling.
Gene Youngblood, who alongside with Marshall McLuhan, is the most celebrated media-philosopher of today, devoted a whole chapter in his book Expanded Cinema, 1970.
So when, will artists be smarter than the Politicians, Internet, Google. CIA, FBI, Museum and curators and engineers and stupid journalists and all the other fuckers, to really communicate on the Line ?
Its only a matter of time to get the rat asses out.
Its time for artists to topple the politicians, no matter what political view the politicians represent. Being elected by the "people" do not at all guaranti the seriousness of the business they perform. No matter what art you are doing, your act and your works will always be a political gesture.
But in the first place, do never let a politician define what is art or not art. The whole independent cultural society can put all these political boys and girls into a place where they belong.
Most politicians in the world getting too much attention and its really time for a new intellectual avantgarde to take the frontsite. Politics destroy Science and Art all around the World. - T.S.
Above: The australian/swedish artist Ture Sjolander's 300 meter long, giant stainless steel etching could not be displayed in any space at the Venice Biennale 2007.
However, he realized already 50 years ago that no artists in the world would be satisfied having an object of any kind displayed in a room without getting any media
coverage so he finally placed it on the internet instead, as a web page.
Moral sense: Visual art who not can be televised or be published worldwide is useless art so why put stuff and staff into a confined space; museums or art galleries, instead of on-air live TV from start.
