Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Naomi Cook

by Christian Petersen
Montreal-based multi-media artist Naomi Cook says her work has grown out of an interest in “engravings, sound, and visual representations of data.” Her eclectic work represents a true integration of traditional techniques with modern thinking and concepts. , a series in which Cook digitally scans her drawings and converts them to sound, is but one clear example of this fusion. Her incorporation of multiple mediums into her projects is mirrored by the diversity of her subject matter. These... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Katie Torn

by Christian Petersen
New York-based new media artist Katie Torn makes work suspended in limbo somewhere between our physical and digital realities, as she seamlessly synthesizes filmed or photographed sculptural objects with digitally generated forms. There is strange alchemy at work in Torn’s aesthetic, which fuses disposable cultural touchstones of the 80s and 90s with complex, surrealist compositions and ideas. Her work is simultaneously joyful and solemn, perfectly reflecting her love/hate relationship with the... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Monia Ben Hamouda

by Christian Petersen
Milan-based artist Monia Ben Hamouda may not seem like a “web artist” in the traditional sense because her work isn’t primarily about or made to be specifically displayed online. But it’s also true that what constitutes a net, web, or new media artist today is increasingly hard to define. Ben Hamouda’s work has an almost intangible quality that evokes similar feelings to art more traditionally deemed “internet art.” While much of her work could be considered sculptural in the strict,...

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Eva Papamargariti

by Christian Petersen
Originally from Greece and based in London, Eva Papamargariti reflects and analyzes the rapidly transforming relationships between “material and immaterial” matter in our new digital world. Papamargariti’s work contains complex visual (and often audio) collages in which impossible organic forms constantly evolve, mutate, and entwine. No matter how utterly alien her work can seem, it retains consistent feelings of a deep human familiarity—which only adds to its uncanny sensibilities. Lurking... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Julia Greenway

by Christian Petersen
Julia Greenway is part of a slowly growing global movement of people dedicating physical galleries to new media art. Shows featuring new media are now fairly commonplace but gallerists deciding to focus on it exclusively are still relatively rare. Greenway’s Seattle gallery Interstitial stands as the sole permanent beacon of new media in a city that has been surprisingly slow to embrace that discipline, despite its status as a corporate tech epicenter. Greenway has made good progress in... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Haydi Roket

by Christian Petersen
Istanbul-based Haydi Roket is part of a rising wave of new media artists turning their hands to the curation of online digital art shows. He launched his latest show earlier this week. Virtual Dream features 30 artists (full disclosure: I am one of them) exploring the tensions and inconsistencies between our real and our increasingly dominant digital lives. Most online experiences consist of a seemingly random sequence of abstract images and ideas, much like our “real” dreams. The show, seen... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Xaviera López

by Christian Petersen
‪Xaviera López is a Chilean animator who was an early adopter of the short video app Vine. Alongside a few likeminded souls she helped reveal the creative potential of the deceptively limited platform. The challenge of packing ideas, depth, and emotion into a maximum of six seconds has lead to a new visual language that has spread across all motion-based mediums. López creates hallucinatory, visual poems that expertly utilize traditional drawing and animation techniques in a uniquely modern... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Dylan Neuwirth

by Christian Petersen
Seattle-based artist Dylan Neuwirth has carved a distinct path in the world of digital art. Of course he’s not the only artist to represent his thoughts on the digital age through non-digital, physical objects. But he’s made his unique mark using the archaic element of neon to meditate on the complexities of our world. Neuwirth’s work combines instant gratification with esoteric exploration. A thread of thoughtful, electronic paganism runs through much of his creations, but he is careful to... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Sabrina Ratté

by Christian Petersen
Montreal-based video artist Sabrina Ratté makes stunning electronic environments that recall (or predict) an era where society has perfected a clinical, aesthetic beauty at the cost of fleshy emotion. That is not to say her work doesn’t inspire feelings. It affects you on a primal level because these places feel like they exist deep within our collective, aspirational unconsciousness. There is a calm spirituality and reassuring familiarity here that, ironically, often only serves to exaggerate... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: LaTurbo Avedon

by Christian Petersen
The artist LaTurbo Avedon may be a computer-created avatar but she is very much alive. Her identity has been created through very real experiences and interactions over numerous websites, social platforms, and gaming consoles. The notion that there is a “real” person behind the avatar becomes increasingly meaningless as the division between all of our online and IRL identities blur and dissipate. LaTurbo Avedon’s work partly explores her personal existence as a physical/digital entity, but... [more]
