”Close Window. Refresh”. Honor by Daniel G. Andújar


International Video Exhibition in Senko Frame Project

June 7.th – June 28.th:
Daniel G. Andújar (Spain): ”Honor”, 2006
The last video in this series is by the mediaartist Daniel G. Andújar better known under the fiction “Technologies To The People”. “Honor” is a part of his “Postcapital Archives”, and in this work he remixes videosamples from the net. The samples consist of amateur recordings made by combatants themselves from hot spots of global war and then uploaded to the net and from the many wargames available on the net. This video gives a scary picture of the growing convergence between the real and the virtual imaginations we have about our world.
Daniel has created numerous netbased artworks and directed international workshops for artists and social collectives. He has exhibited previously in Denmark in Aarhus Kunstbygning curated by Jacob Lillemose.

”Close Window. Refresh”
International Video Exhibition in Senko Frame Project

The window is seen as the borderline between inside and outside, between the private and the public domain, but also as the transparence between these spheres.
This exhibition presents the digital transmission to the urban pulse and image by showing the videos in the big front window of Senko Studio in Viborg. Simultaneously the videos are shown full screen at www.senko.dk.
We call the interface on the internet browserwindow . It is the way in and the way out of the virtual scape; an opening and a closure. We open up to new information and experiences. We use the functionality refresh if we want to update the content. And with “Close Window. Refresh” as the title for this exhibition I want to reflect on the interference and the transcoding the internet has on our daily reality.
The artists are all from the international digital art scene and embrace the theme from an aesthetic, humorous, social or/and political point of view.
