[nettime-lat] Homage to Felix Gonzalez-Torres

                                                            Title: "Homage 
to Felix Gonzalez-Torres"

This project is born as a homage to Felix Gonzalez-Torres, a marvelous 
intimist artist. This re-creates one of his most well known projects, the 
photograph of his bed exhibited to the pedestrians on the streets of New 
York City, a project organized by Anne Unland in collaboration with MoMa, 
from May 16th to June 30th of 1992. It is my intention to take it as a 
starting point and re-create it on the world wide web, hoping to involve 
other persons and render it all as a work in progress. Such action would 
render homage to an artist I love, re-evaluate the role of the web which, 
the more it becomes real space that documents and renders live reality 
itself, the further it creates a dialogue between private and public space.

The artistic work will take as its starting point photographs contributed by 
the contestants which will be posted on the web for which, from 12/16/02 to 
12/20/02, I have photographed my bedroom in the morning and have also 
inserted other photos taken from other public sites (see the list of sites 
below). I propose that all chance visitors send me photos of their 
in-the-morning beds so I can publish them starting on 12/20/02 at the 
appropriate websites.

All the material will then be gathered on a suitable website.

The project will be developed at these websites: (forum) (Carta Bianca)

Note to the project participants:
The photos should not be larger than 50 kb or have contents that might be 
offensive to public morality. Participation in the project will be deemed as 
your acceptance for the future use of your submitted photos and for their 
use on other sites and for possible future showings on public sites. 
Further, your participation will be taken as your authorization for future 
photographic reproduction and/or use in other presentations by the artist, 
Dominco Olivero, for commercial or advertising materials. he photographs 
will be placed on the site with the name of the person who sent them; if you 
wish another form of acknowledgement please specify in your e-mail.
