The Internet Pavilion initiated by Miltos Manetas presents:

– The Island of Internet
– Bring Your Own Beamer, an exhibition series created by Rafael Rozendaal

« Two years ago, we introduced PADIGLIONE INTERNET, the Internet Pavilion for the Venice Biennale. On its first edition, the Pavilion was presented as a collateral event of the Biennale. For that first edition, we invited the crowd of to come in Venice and inaugurate their first Embassy of Piracy at the S.A.L.E Headquarters at the Magazzini del Sale, next to the Punta della Dogana

During the passing two years, things have changed. A part of the Net, has now moved from the Network to the independent devices of iPod/iPads and the other Internet tablets. If networks are « clouds », these devices are « islands ». Our phycological connection to these, differs significantly from the relationship we have with computers. We believe that these « soft islands »- because of their design- are a first step towards a neo-analogue turn in technology. At the same time, they can potentially host the « SlowNet », an Internet that does not depend on servers, remaining in that way, a free land. In the occasion of the Second Internet Pavilion at the Venice Biennial, we are now inviting the concept of « SlowNet » at the Island of San Servolo.

We also have in mind the concept of Metascreen.
Mr. Leonard Kleinrock, the father of the Internet, complains that we aren’t serious yet with Internet, that our information bodies are still trapped in devices such as monitors/projectors/computers and the such. Mr. Kleinrock wants us able to connect from any place and by any device- even with a fork or an old shoe. He also wants the device to be invisible. What Mr. Kleinrock ultimately wants, is that Internet, becomes nothing but another layer of Nature. He wants us start having a natural relationship with the database, to start relating with internet objects, in the same way that we relate with clouds, sheep and ocean waves.

In such context, BringYourOwnBeamer, is a perfect portrait of the actual situation: people bringing their own machines and projecting on any space that they can grab. In a desperate attempt to open a window of fantasy and creativity over a heavily nested « real space, BYOB is one of the few original expressions-even if its somewhat of a grimace- that are still possible to be achieved with visual arts. It is the scream of our extended bodies, while trapped between computer keyboards and the unnatural light of the computer projectors. »
