Opening on First Friday, August 5th 6-10PM at little berlin

Distributed Collectives

An exhibition of three web-based artist groups: Computers Club, Manifest.AR and F.A.T.  The artists in these groups are located in cities all over the globe, including Berlin, New York, London, Phoenix, Boston, Amsterdam among others – many of them have been working together closely online for years but have never met in person.  This show examines the history and structure of the groups and looks at the diverse processes and approach of the artist working on the interwebz.  

Work in the show ranges from creative coding projects like browser extensions and spatial recognition, to augmented reality public art, to browser-based motion art and physical installations.
