IDAProjects - the vernacular terrain, 2007
the vernacular terrain
Works have been selected from artists that respond to their environment in a broad philosophical manner. Is it possible to speak of local dialects of the terrain? Are the artists presenting specific viewpoints of the landscape within a contextual framework? What are the influences of hyper-techno landscapes surrounding the vernacular in virtual worlds, interactive design, gaming, locative/mobile technologies and web culture? What we see in this exhibition is an eclectic anthropological view of our world. These artists explore and engage in interdisciplinary practices and hybrid processes that go beyond any single art form.
