Upstream’s Net Art Update (#26). Featured in the exhibition Quiet, Calm, Staring on our online platform www.upstream.gallery (curated by Rafael Rozendaal).
When you have to stay at home there’s always Net Art. Art made for the internet, meant to be experienced at home, behind your own computer.
Today: Guthrie Lonergan, Hamburgers, 2012. Find it at http://www.theageofmammals.com/burgers/.
As an artist whose interests include the influence of digital culture on the broader sphere of creative production, Guthrie Lonergan (US, 1984) works with the Internet as a source material. Rather than merely limit himself to this realm or make work that is “about the Internet,” however, he positions his practice within the pervasive reach of today’s Internet culture. His work Burgers is a mesmerizing website with hundreds of scrolling, multiplying, clickable hamburgers.
