Review

________________2012________________

"Das Archiv des Vergessens"
@ Tages Woche, by Roberto Simanowski

"Als Kunstler will Hallenbeck... durch die Auswahl nicht mehr das Besondere hervorheben. Er will auch nicht eine besondere Geschichte komponieren. ... Es geht einzig darum, die mit dem Internet verbundene Archivierung von Realitat auf ein ertragliches Mass herabzusetzen."

""That Big Red Button Was Irresistible": Play Station at Postmasters" @ artcritical
by Carla Gannis and Peter Patchen

"Travis Hallenbeck's RPG (Random Party Game) (2011) I found somewhat frustrating. The set up - "Dec 20th, 2012 at 11:30pm" - conjured up all sorts of narrative potential that felt thwarted once I began to interact with the AI."

"I couldn't focus at all on RPG... at the opening."

"Collect the WWWorld. The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age"
by Domenico Quaranta, Gene McHugh, Joanne McNeil and Josephine Bosma

"...the main manifestation of his art - a daily performance that can be monitored through the traces he leaves on the net...."


"Een tentoonstelling in een e-mail"
by Anna van Leeuwen

"Een paar minuten later ontvang ik een mailtje met 162 mini-plaatjes, die bizar, spannend, nietszeggend of juist heel intiem zijn."

"Internet Aware Art; Emotions in Net Art", by Tom Moody

"To get back to the long form ["equivalent of a novel or opera" in Internet art], Travis Hallenbeck's bookmarks have hundreds of examples of "not ready for prime time" art that evoke struggling "little guys" or "lonely girls" right out of Tennessee Williams. The bookmarks alone define the artistic sensibility, there is no self-conscious shaping."

Surfing Clubs: organizing notes and comments, by Marcin Ramocki


"We Did It Ourselves!" @
Light Industry
by Guthrie Lonergan

"We will look at a vague Internet art movement (moment?) still growing -- critical of but subject to technology -- artists in relationship to The Big Database, collecting tiny home video thumbnails, or posting difficult metaphysical questions on Yahoo! Answers (a lot of Travis Hallenbeck and Joel Holmberg), etc. -- regular Internet users as artists -- artists using Google.com -- And with just-as-powerful pieces of online 'amateur content'...."


"Interview with Guthrie Lonergan" @
Rhizome, by Thomas Beard

"Basically, Nasty Nets was all the surfers I'd met through trading links on del.icio.us who'd already been developing a special "taste" in surfing: a fascination with defaults and a certain kind of banal deadpan. (I'll point to Travis Hallenbeck as the obvious best example of this kind of surfing.)"
