IRL & URL / 099 COLLECTION #2
I’m so proud to have introduced this new book of #Biancoshock by a paper of mine taken from the critical essay ‘From Bianco to Shock and Back‘ dedicated to the artist’s work, which I wrote in 2021 for the second issue of Connessioni remote, the scientific journal of the University of Milan.
🛰 “IRL & URL” shows how the use of digital media, intended as tools for criticism or as subjects of criticism itself, can determine aesthetic-conceptual implications in the concretization of an original relationship between real and digital space.
🚀 The book contains 13 projects developed through digital platforms, Apps and web programs that create a dialogue between the virtual and the real world. Society today lives and moves within these two worlds which can no longer be considered separately.
📡 For this reason the artist uses these digital tools not only as classic containers or archives but, above all, as new vehicles capable of transmitting messages in the URL
