First Friday opening– Distributed Collectives

Please join us for an opening reception on First Friday, August 5th that includes performance, demonstrations, virtual tours and barbecue: from 6-11PM at little berlin, located in the courtyard at the Viking Mill: 

2430 Coral Street

Parking for bikes and cars is readily available.

An exhibition of three web-based artist groups: Computers Club, Manifest.AR and F.A.T. The artists in these groups are located in cities across the world, including Berlin, New York, London, Phoenix, Boston, Amsterdam among others – many of them have been working together closely online for years but have never met in person. This show examines the history and structure of the groups and looks at the diverse processes and approach of the artist working on the interwebz. 

Work in the show ranges from creative coding projects like browser extensions and spatial recognition work, to augmented reality public art, to browser-based motion art and physical installations.
