Mario Santamaria - Travel to my Website

Mario Santamaria, Travel to my Website, 2016

“Repetition with my body of the movement of a data package on the Internet, from my home to the server where my artist website is hosted.

This website presents the result of this absurd journey simulating a traceroute that takes as long to complete as the artist in physically travelling to his server.”

…by guest curators invites four curators each year from international digital art galleries, online spaces, biennales and festivals to present online projects and commissions for a period of three months. Each curator is encouraged to showcase artists within or outside of their networks, and to experiment with the platform and how they present projects. This strand of AOS initiates conversations with similar spaces globally and contextualises our work on an international scale.
