The Art of Future Shock

It was a typical muggy August night. Kolin Pope was mucking around online, as usual, and his neurotic dog Alex was barking at nothing in particular.

He heard a knock at the door, followed by a muffled conversation between his mother and the visitors, and then received the message that would launch him into a strange, sometimes surreal world.

"Kolin," his mom says, "there's someone here for you. They say they're from the future."

The Ego Machine

Life after death and the Virtual Ego Machine. As our lives are more entwined with the digital realm, so our consciousness too will become cybernetic.

Space Scapes

Her works are mostly abstract - space related, although she also works in the portrait, floral, figurative, still life and landscape genre.

Artist's Statement on Digital Art

"I started making digital art in 1988, 16 years ago, before there were color printers! We had to use the main frame at the college I studied at and the professor said it would cost $50,000 to buy a color printer with all the colors!
I said "go for it!" We've come a long way!

I had always been an experimental artist. Art and technology together have been my dream since the 60s when I was a space writer-photographer covering the Apollo Moon Program. I saw art in those rockets!

I say, give technology a chance to help create the art! Then, 'chance' or randomness becomes a part of the work. I like a piece of art to look like it created itself, be an artifact.

Each medium has its own message. I have taken that approach to digital art, welding, plastics forming, painting, casting, photography, electroforming, and clothing design.

I have found it offers a way to give me unique images that can combine all art media, even writing and photography. Mainly it's a wonderful mental medium, sensitive to my feelings like no other medium. I still paint and create sculpture but now I find myself going back to my Mac all day (and night) long, working through new ideas and creating new works!"

Creativum Gallery
Michael P. Ammel (the P. stands for Peter) is a "digital artist" from Germany, now living with his family in Sete, Southern France. He is mainly an autodidact who came from painting, sculptering and photography into the field of digital image creation. A natural way for him, that offers unlimited ways of expression. He feels like being just an "image maker" who uses a wide range of technologies to cross new boarders and communicate his messages, with finally a simple and the most common "code" to our species - the IMAGE. Digital Art is therefore an unlimited space for new thoughts without the typical, often static frames. For Michael there seems to be a wide common concept between painting, music, dance and even photography, its the form, the light, the color, the rhythm and the emotion. Humor and irony, with a special regard to our "real life" are often the base of Michaels photo montage and collage. Political and philosophical aspects do play a role in many of his images. As a longtime "fractal generator" he loves to integrate this small miracles into his images.

The Museum of Computer Art
MOCA is one of the most heavily-trafficked, comprehensive, frequently-updated and respected computer art museums on the Web. It tries to keep abreast of the latest and best in computer art. Both beginning and advanced artists frequently visit here, if only to see what the competition is doing. We expect it is a learning experience for artists of all skill levels, and for the viewing public as well.

Digital Postage Stamp Project for 2004

Stamp Gallery

From: Parys St Martin

Each artist to design one postage stamp size image.

Each artist to send me one copy by email so I can display it on my website with links.

Each artist to send 1 copy of the same stamp by mail (yes, that snail mail way) to every other artist involved, and then the stamp is to be placed in a stamp album with the date it was received and from whom. 

The more artistís involved the merrier, as I see this project going on for the whole of 2004 and then if possible the stamp album can be set in a gallery space or even in a Post Office as an exhibit at the end of the year.

Please email me if you are interested

And thank you to the webists who have already contacted me.
