We submitted an expanded version of identityware for ISEA 2006. identityware www.idware.co.uk is an experimentation lab for ‘art-products’ based on an e-commerce model. The project includes innovative products and artefacts which challenge cultural, creative and economic conditional norms. The project focuses on the development of ‘object variants’ (i.e. modifications; creative departures, options, substitutes, mutations or evolutionary trajectories arrived at through an engagement with specific design technologies.) These art products tread the line between artist multiples, designed objects, and collectibles. As well as the existing rootoftwo work on the site we have new ideas from:
Peter Eudenbach (USA) http://www.petereudenbach.com/index.html
Jon Pengelly (UK) http://www.greenham-common-trust.co.uk/resident.htm (scroll down a bit)
Rob Price (USA) http://www.thwartdesign.com/index.html
Ken Rinaldo (USA) http://accad.osu.edu/~rinaldo/
Simon Ringe (UK) http://www.newtopologies.org/
Amy Youngs (USA) http://accad.osu.edu/~ayoungs/
Hopefully we'll get the new work up on the site soon.
