Fog (2009) CLICK THROUGH

Having spent the last year with a pretty much constant feed of the internet, it’s not that often that I stop and think about what I’m seeing.  I’ve gone to the edges of the internet and its interesting what you find out there sometimes. Take Nicolas Sassoon. A True ‘digital artist,’ he creates a lush, atmospheric picture using nothing much more than an animated gif image.

He’s turned this:

AIDS-3D: Think about it.

Meet AIDS-3D, otherwise known as Daniel Keller and Nic Kosmas. Two American artists based in Berlin.  It’s hard to really describe these guys, but from the information I’ve gathered, I’d say they form feedback loop of what’s happening in the current art world to the point of abstraction or ‘Answering questions stoners ask with an absurd rhetorical question in the form of visual art.’ In other words: I like it, but I don’t get it.  I mean I get it, but only as much as someone can get it. Right?

In any case, they seemed to have blown up on the internet last year, so there’s a wealth of articles on them, which paint them to be irreverent and über-informed.
