New Show and Commodify.us Review

One of my projects Commodify.us is in a show in D.C.: Cyber in Securities.

Also, Marc Garrett wrote a nice write up about the project on furtherfield.

This is a cultural shift that demonstrates how contemporary Hacktivists are developing software that promises to start to offer realistic service infrastructures. When I interviewed Charlie Gere in 2012[8] he said that these artists “are not part of the restricted economy of exchange, profit, and return that is at the heart of capitalism, and to which everything else ends up being subordinated and subsumed. Thus they find an enclave away from total subsumption not outside of the market, but at its technical core.” For me, this kind of work is of central importance to the contemporary era, and it only occurs where artists cross over into territories where their knowledge of networks directly contributes to the building of alternative structures of social independence.
