Boris Petrovsky: You&Me-isms
Installation view Boris Petrovsky
Part I
03.03.2011 – 31.05.2011

Drawing from analogue technologies, such as optical telegraphs, telex machines, and advertising media, You&Me-isms is an idiosyncratic cyber punk communication machine. Visitors are asked to interact as users, with a message via SMS or Twitter. Their messages then appear as an illuminated path of signs in the blip matrix, where they cross over with web news feeds. The chaotic, complex network of 450 neon signs is literally attributed sense (or nonsense) and lent an apparent structure. A confrontation with and inquiry into the construction of reality characterize the installation and art and architecture projects of media artist Boris Petrovsky (born 1967 in Konstanz).

The project will be shown in the context of the Science Year 2009 of the cities of Konstanz and Kreuzlingen in the Kunstraum CH-Kreuzlingen and at the Kulturzentrum D-Konstanz and was promoted and financed by the European Fund for Regional Development and by the Swiss Confederacy, through the program "Interreg IV" as well as other local partners.
