Project/Number is happy to announce the first collaboration with JK_NET.
JK_NET has been commissioned to create participatory experiences during a one-month residency at the space. JK_NET is a cultural production label that specialises in open-ended, multi-individual projects.
JK_NET has set up three events for Project/Number, ANA_CON, GIVE_GIF and COLD_CUT. Each commission will unfold in two stages. The first stage will be a two-hour event where participants engage in the production process of the project. The second stage will involve an extended distribution of the produced material and open forum discussion. The exchange will then be further displaced onto various online platforms such as tumbler, twitter and the online forum http://jknet.freeforums.net

GIVE_GIF: The second event during JK_NET's residency at Project/Number will gather artists dealing, through their practices, with the digital format as a medium that reveals the importance of circulation and distribution of art and questions authorship over work. Anne de Boer, Marija Bozinovska Jones and the Ambiguity project initiated by Sarai Kirshner and Valinia Svoronou will be in conversation after introducing their practices. Anne works with algorithms, shuffle functions and randomizers as a creative tool to democratize the production process by proposing a computational author. Marija deals with geopolitical complexities and representations by flattening out global symbols in order to challenge Utopian visions of modernity past, present and future while proposing fictional places to reflect on the dreamlike landscapes of collective imaginary. Sarai and Valinia are investigating liminal spaces amongst different hierarchical structures and genres throughout their collaboration, they are striving to create a transmutational discourse to enable alternative identifications. Questions such as supporting structures for collectivity and different ways artists can place their work within the growing space for collective production and distrubution (such as internet memes and remixes) will hopefully arise and lead to a fruitful exchange of knowledge. The event will kick off with a gif-workshop with Chris Timms, who will gif you the insights on how to construct a “Graphics Interchange Format” artwork by making JK_NET’s logo freely available for your remix. The new logos will be published as JK_NET’s gif-collection on http://jk-net5.tumblr.com/, which we will launch in the evening of this event. Each gif will as well be published in the following days on JK_NET’s social media. .
