to the Day-to-Day Data Web-based Exhibition. The Web-based Exhibition
officially launched to coincide with the start of
the exhibition tour on 20 July 2005.
The Web-based Exhibition features four new projects by artists dealing with
a broad spectrum of material from day-to-day life – from the secret lives
of common supermarket products such as washing powder in Anders Bojen & Kristoffer
Ørum’sDetergent (Real imaginary system) to the secret
lives of the shopping trolleys themselves in Adele
Prince’sTrolley Spotting. The mystery of the meaning of
baby chatter is deciphered in Kevin Carter’s
De do do do, de da da da (They're meaningless and all that's true) and
the Earthly locations of our stars are revealed in Jem
Finer’sOn Earth as in Heaven.
Some of the projects use the internet itself
as a database – linking to other websites all over the world where the
relevant data can be pinpointed, whilst others use the look and feel of familiar
web-based systems such as online learning and mapping software to make playful
pastiches with which to display their data...
