Art Generator

Tired of thinking what your next artist's statement could be? Try The Market-O-Matic (1.0) [fine arts version] With just filling the blanks, get a full statement, that would have nothing to envy to contemporary artists!

With the evolution of the electronic environment, the mind is reaching a point where it will be free from the body to share immersions into the parameters of the delphic space. Work of Anti-Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction contains 10 minimal shockwave engines (also refered to as "soundtoys") that enable the user to make transgenic audio/visual compositions.

Ros Kovac's work investigates the nuances of pixels through the use of slow motion and close-ups which emphasize the Mechanical nature of digital media. Kovac explores abstract and atemporal scenery as motifs to describe the idea of infinite space. Using static loops, non-linear narratives, and slow-motion images as patterns, Kovac creates meditative environments which suggest the expansion of time...

  1. I got some post-art bullshit I should post on my site.

    According to the system, "my body is a zeitgeist". I've been called many ways in my life, but this machine? Hey...
