  1. 1. Liz Sivell @madlizzie Tori Winn @ttbumper Malin Hanas @malinhanas Nat Hunter @redfishnat Emma Sexton @emmasexton
  2. 2. arthacking a look at hacking from an art perspective ! ! ! ! speaker: tori winn
  3. 3. Hello. ! I wanted to pick an angle that would force me to rethink what I know of hacking. ! As a creative director I spend lots of time somewhere ‘in the creative process’— literally hacking away at things and putting all kinds of thoughts and ideas down and bringing people together to make cool stuff. Making things is something I love. ! ! !
  4. 4. I am interpreting ‘hacking’ in the literal sense of the word: hacking a video game…hacking a piece of paper (pre-computers) ….hacking time.…space….culture….clay….everyday objects.…histories…. ! Each of the artists I’ve chosen has a different and unique kind of voice. In most cases, having this identifiable voice is usually what has to happen for an artist to become recognized so that people understand his or her work. ! All of them have in some way hacked or hack the world we live in as a way of expressing who they are as artists.
  5. 5. hacking has been around forever.
  6. 6. stone and flint tools have been the means of our ancestors’ survival for over a million years…
  7. 7. ! ! More than 125,000 years ago… ! Caves like Lascaux in France, became the first ‘art’ galleries filled with elaborate images of horse, bison, buffalo, wooly mammoths and other animals. ! The cave paintings were hacked into the walls of the caves and pigment was then carefully pressed into the crevices that were created by a flint. ! The flint itself was hacked by another piece of stone that was carefully picked because of its strength. ! ! !
  8. 8. ! Almost 100 years ago… ! ! Dadaism was an art movement that hacked the absurd and unexplainable to reinforce the surreal nature of life. ! Using mostly magazines and newspapers, they took words and images and made mostly collaged imagery to create nonsensical poems, sculpture and books. ! Giving the viewer a new look at everything they are faced with on a daily basis. The movement sparked significant changes in painting and sculpture. marcel duchamp Fountain, 1917
  9. 9. hacks computer games and in the process changes the inherent meaning of the symbols to change the way we associate with specific ideas we are surrounded by.
  10. 10. Corey Arcangel ! is an American artist and techno geek who loves to game. His work centers on his love of personal computers and the internet. He mostly hacks youtube videos (steals, reuses, recycles) content and computer game code and aesthetics and turns them into art ‘by mucking around in this area’. ! He changes the inherent meaning of the symbols in the games and as a result he changes the way we associate with specific ideas we are surrounded by. He is our most current form of art hacker. Maybe he is changing the way we think about the digital imagery and artefacts we are surrounded by through altering the outcome of familiar things…
  11. 11. In Clouds, Cory took an old Super Mario Brothers Nintendo video game and erased everything but the clouds.
  12. 12. Cory Arcangel: Pro Tools, an exhibition of work at the Whitney museum in NYC, revolves around the concept of “product demonstrations.” All of the works featured in the exhibition—ranging from video games, single channel video, kinetic sculpture, and prints, to pen plotter drawings—have been created by means of technological tools with an emphasis on the mixing and matching of both professional and amateur technologies, as well as the vernaculars these technologies encourage within culture at large.
  13. 13. Part of Cory Arcangel's "I Shot Andy Warhol," which he created by hacking and rewriting the game "Hogan's Alley". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nbej4iuUN4Q The exhibition also includes works from the series Photoshop Gradient Demonstrations, consisting of unique prints showing fades between colors that have been created by using the popular image processing software Photoshop’s standard gradient tool.
  14. 14. The centerpiece of the exhibition, Various Self Playing Bowling Games (2011), is a bowling alley consisting of large-scale projections of bowling games from the late 1970s to the 2000s, each hacked by the artist to throw only gutter balls. Projected in chronological order these games are a history of both video game bowling and of graphic representation in the digital medium, from pixellated abstraction to realism.
  15. 15. When Guy Ben-Ner goes to Ikea, he’s not there for the meatballs. Stealing Beauty
  16. 16. Guy Ben-Ner. Israeli artist. ! hacks one of the world’s most popular furniture shops in the world to stage guerilla theater in Ikea showrooms worldwide. Using our oldest form of narrative for sharing experiences: storytelling. During this process he is making theater, video and performance art. Using words, a plot, a story; this can be compared to some kind of ancient form of theatre with Ikea shoppers looking on as if they are a greek chorus. ! He travels with his family (the cast) and wanders into Ikea showrooms with a semi-prepared script where they act out reasonable facsimile of family life. They put on their scene, filming it as if it was sit-com or a film, as people shop. They continue filming until they are kicked out of Ikea. ! More poignantly, as an Israeli artist who travels the world with family in tow, and makes his art in different countries and spaces, he cannibalizes the culture and objects he encounters, trying to make these work for his art and family. In this way he echoes the immigrant’s story and the artist’s quest. He almost becomes a kind of lost gnomadic immigrant of the world. Stealing Beauty.

  18. 18. grayson perry hacks clay to tell everyday stories.
  19. 19. Grayson Perry is a national treasure. ! He hacks clay, one of the oldest materials we have used alongside a flint; to tell everyday stories. ! ! He is the Hogarth of our generation. Every bit of tittle tattle, gossip, world news and the class system gets explored on the sides of his pots. He makes stealthy comments about societal injustices and hypocrises and explores a variety of historical and contemporary themes. ! His work is very personal and moving. Beautiful, made by hand and often large in scale. !
  20. 20. andy goldsworthy hacks nature to give us a new beauty in the environment
  21. 21. He hacks nature to give us a new beauty in the environment. He cuts through trees, rocks, the land itself and makes outdoor sculpture that will not last. He reinvents nature through his gorgeous rearrangements of our landscape.
  22. 22. joseph cornell hacks everything we are surrounded by, from an egg, to a lens, to a magazine, to a piece of furniture to create sculptural poetry in boxes. ! He makes poetic worlds that allow us to enter his mind and bring our own thoughts and desires. Always in the surrounds of a box, they are both childlike and dream like. He allows us to interpret his arrangements of boxes as though we are children and the shoeboxes we used to love to store things in. ( Self-taught, American artist )
  23. 23. yinka shonabare hacks to show us the British African Experience None of the characters in his art have heads. They are anonymous people, usually in a western European scene, the only thing is, they are wearing clothing made from African fabrics. It is as though Barak Obama had refurnished all the soft furnishings in the White House using African printed fabric. ! A British-Nigerian artist who lives in London.
