Kari Altmann’s work takes the shape of expansive and evolving teams of media bound by tags.
For the First Look: New Art Online series, Altmann presents “Soft Mobility Abstracts,” a new commissioned project using tags #jailbreakgesture, #softmobility, #vitalcontent, and #credit, all showing an interest in networked survivalism.

Where do the boundaries of an art collection end?
In collaboration with the Collection and Usher Gallery in Lincoln, UK, Oliver Laric initiated “Lincoln 3D Scans,” a project comprised of scanning and publishing 3-D models of works in the institutes’ archive. Presented this month as part of First Look, this experimental and open-ended project’s original premise is described as, “making the collection available to an audience outside of its geographic proximity and to treat the objects as starting points for new works.”

Damon Zucconi’s Multiple (2013), an original work for the New Museum’s First Look series, offers a different, more abstract mode of quantifying an organization’s history and impact. The piece—a website—connects all programs catalogued in the New Museum digital archive (including exhibitions, talks, or screenings) to duration. The title of each event links to a counter that presents the years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds that have passed since the event ended. All are presented on a monochromatic background determined by the random combination of two hexadecimal values.
Pictured here is one of the entries for Aboveground Animation: 3D-Form (2012) featuring artists Barry Doupé, Kathleen Daniel, Ryan Whittier Hale, and Jacolby Satterwhite, also a work as part of the First Look series.

This summer marks the first anniversary of the First Look: New Art Online series! The inaugural project in the series, Image Atlas (2012) crafted by Taryn Simon and Aaron Swartz, was birthed out of Rhizome’s Seven on Seven Conference in April 2012.
The project investigates cultural differences and similarities by indexing top image results for given search terms across local search engines around the world. Click here to view the work.
First Look: New Art Online is a monthly series of innovative online projects and new commissions.
How can an artist’s work be represented online?
As part of our First Look: New Art Online series, the artist Harm van den Dorpel looks directly at this question through Dissociations, a deeply studied and spontaneous view of his process. The website—a concatenation of references, influences, and artworks, made, unmade, or imagined—gives his studio practice, along with its iterative and aggregative rhythms, a visual form.
