AWARENESS OF EVERYTHING
SPEED SHOW for Internet Week NY
Wednesday June 8, 2011, 7:00pm – 10:00pm
Internet Garage, 218 Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
The phrase “Awareness of Everything” is drawn from a recent essay published by Erik Stinson called Towards A New Theory of Creativity. At the heart of this essay, Stinson describes the role of the contemporary creative, and outlines the skills one must develop in order to ‘become creative’ or ‘more creative’.
Inspired by this theory, the projects collected in Awareness of Everything embody these seminal skills, chiefly: humor, surprise, effective communication, extensive knowledge of a wide variety of cultures and forms, along with the proposal that “the internet has rendered originality meaningless as a strictly policed absolute.”
Visitors are encouraged to play, surf, copy/paste, tweet, blog, and email during the opening, an involvement which is built into the Speed Show exhibition format as an ode to the user’s active engagement, expression and move toward an awareness of everything.
