According to the French philosopher Pierre Lévy (Tunis, 1956), the idea of a “collective conscience” is emerging from within our contemporary, post-industrial “information society”. An online, live, widely distributed and continuously enhanced intelligence has become apparent as a force capable of actually mobilising talents. On its way, the pervasive nature of information technologies has changed both the manufacturing and consumer worlds engendering a new information market.
BB5000 tackles the frenzied pace of these “informational bits” by characterising its art as one created upon the flat surface of Internet. By juxtaposing past and future, primitive and classical, low and hi-tech, utopia and dystopia, nature and science.
BB5000’s creations penetrate and dissect the planned layouts of phenomena such as product placement and screen placement with the sole aim of intoxicating the spectator’s perceptive sphere and latching onto their emotional memory.
Every medium has its own specificity, different to all others, its very grammar, its detailed architecture, its own meticulous craft.
Every image is a means of bringing about different classes of information at once barring any reference to itself.
Text by Domenico de Chirico.
