Art On/Off; Twitter, Sarah Keeling

by sarah_keeling @ 10:18 am November 9, 2011

For this project I wanted to create an unknown collaboration between many significant art Museums who are present on twitter and myself. To do this, I created a light-up “Art” sign which becomes illuminated when these institutions post a new status. I was interested in the conversation surrounding these institutions’ role in art and wanted to approach it with a kitsch aesthetic. I thought the piece touched on many factors such as the distance between the artist and institution and what value does/can an institution bring to an artwork. I was also interested in seeing the real-time stream of data from these museums as a way to observe the frequency of their activity through this means of communication.
