Daniela Plewe, ArtAbstracts
»ArtAbstracts« is an interactive meta-browser which substitutes in real-time the words of the «Media Art Net» website. The substitutions may be synonymous, abstract or more specific than the original expressions. By these variations ‹new interpretations› of artworks and interpretations of new ›artworks‹ are created. »ArtAbstracts« is the computational attempt in linguistics to generalize the incoming information purely with the aid of semantics. Empirical, causal or even strategic insights may not be extracted by that method. Yet, as a meta browser »ArtAbstracts« reconstructs and generalizes the representation of the artworks of the given database of «Media Art Net» and aims at triggering our fantasies—via abstraction.
»ArtAbstracts« is an artistic and theoretical project commissioned by the Center for Art and Media Technology Karlsruhe (ZKM) for the website »Media Art Net.«
