ObraWiki

592_9230ObraWiki is a research project about collective artistic creation processes. The project used as a source of inspiration different computational and cultural products based on open content (free software, wikipedia ..).

The work focuses on the significant increase in recent years, of what scholars have called “the paradox of opensource” that is, the fact that collaborative works, even if in many cases are neither designed or paid, can work as well as products designed in a business context.

But what are the measures that can ensure its working and which are the ones that can weaken it? What are the limits that collective creation can reach, before transforming into a inconclusive chaos, a number of voices so confused that no can produce nothing more than a nonsense whisper?

Through the use of an experimental methodology ObraWiki opens the debate on these issues, investigating within visual arts context, the boundary that separate the effectiveness of collective intelligence and the risk of an inconclusive chaos.

Museo Improvvisato

14museoMuseo Improvvisato is an intervention in public space built entirely from waste, based on the subversion of the value commonly attributed to waste and on the reflection about the role of museum as an art legitimization device.

This piece consisted of the creation of an exhibition space from the waste found in the ground around the site of intervention.During the process each piece of waste receives a title and the intervention was concluded with the organization of a guided tour to the exhibition.

The use of waste as an object of ready-made art underline how the process of attribution of value is simply a social situated act.  16museoAt the same time the process emphasizes that our attention to the waste can be transformed by a conscious practice of evaluation.
