proposal for exhibition at star 67
(v 3.0)


project title:

vieweratstar67@yahoo.com
(the 3mb annexation)

artists:
mtaa (m. river & t. whid art associates)

mtaa proposes to extend the exhibition space of star67 gallery, brooklyn, by the amount of 3 megabytes of disk space on the servers of yahoo.com.

the commercialization of the internet makes possible this annex to star67. Yahoo! (one among many) offers users a free email account with a limit of 3mb of disk space for storage. This space, though a commercialized private space, may also be made a public space if the password is made available to the public.


The account may be accessed at http://mail.yahoo.com

m. river's welcoming message
***
Hey VIEWERATSTAR67, welcome to the MTAA’s 3mb annexation of Star67, Brooklyn Homepage
***
Hello, my name is M. River, one half of the net.art collaboration known as MTAA.
***
I’d like to sort of set the ground rules for what we (MTAA, Star 67, and you (the Viewer)) are going to do at the 3mb annex.
***
Let’s start with the Architecture. The 3mb annex is a Yahoo mail account. One may sign up with Yahoo.com for a free email account (with 3 megabytes of storage)...in exchange for getting some personal info from you, showing you ads, and putting the name Yahoo on all your email. Yahoo, is one of many companies that do this sort of thing. They were selected for this project because...well, no real reason...just that Yahoo is common. I’ve always wondered if Warhol picked Campbell's soup for this reason or if something else was in play (if you have any answer to this, please email the 3mb annex under the subject heading SOUP)
***
Anyway, we are going to be filling up this account with email (text and graphics). Each email may be thought of as public corporate art. The guiding themes of this work will include architecture, art, commercial art, Brooklyn, love, sex, personal revolution, banality, media, construction of celebrity....well just to make it easy...think Warhol in cyberspace.
***
What can you do?...Send us email art , tell your friends, please don't delete everything in the box.
