Grazie ad un articolo di Domenico Quaranta intitolato la " LA CONDIZIONE POSTMEDIALE" - Una mostra al Centro Conde Duque di Madrid è l'occasione per ripercorrere il pensiero sulla nostra era postmediale, da Rosalind Krauss a Peter Weibel" su undo.net sono andata a rileggermi la presentazione di Peter Weibel alla mostra POSTMEDIALE KONDITIONARCO 2006 dove si trova una definizione di POSTMEDIA CONDITION qui' riassunta brevemente.
La POSTMEDIA CONDITION e' definita in due fasi :
- La prima fase (equivalence of the media) consiste nel riconoscimento a tutti i nuovi media (fotografia, film, video, digital art) dello stesso valore artistico attribuito ai media tradizionali (pittura e scultura) ...
- La seconda fase invece (the mixing of the media) consiste nell'uso di diversi media contemporaneamente come ad esempio ..... una fotografia diventa una scultura, installazioni video possono essere tratti di letteratura o architettura, i programmi di grafica di chiamano paint-program, perche' ralativi al painting, alla pittura...
Con gli ipod chiunque puo' inventarsi la propria musica, col videocasting chiunque puo' avere un canale televisivo...

Nei primi accessi su 0100101110101101.ORG, trovavo una mappa che segnalava durante l'arco delle giornate i vari spostamenti di un furgoncino che si muoveva tra il nord Italia e la Catalunia.
Era il 2002 e il progetto era VOPOS un anno con un satellite di sorveglianza.
dal sito: Telephone, satellites and the Internet: VOPOS exploits and merges three kinds of nets.
The two members of 0100101110101101.ORG are the cell under control. Since the beginning of the project VOPOS they wear a GPS transmitter that, exchanging data with the satellites, constantly transmits to their website their exact position on the urban environment. A software draws on a digital geographic map the exact position in which they reside, establishing a path that traces all the movements.
Successivamente una installazione a Berlino dove ha ricostruito un finto NIKEplatz suscitando polemiche e accuse da quello ufficiale di Vienna.
Un nuovo modo di appropriarsi di grandi simboli commerciali per autopromuoversi e come atto di denuncia sociale ... il cosidetto "guerrilla marketing".
La caratteristica di 0100101110101101.ORG e' proprio il gioco con le identita'; oltre che appropriarsi dei "simboli commerciali" infatti la sua prima apparizione nel 1998 e' stata una vera reincarnazione : Darko Maver, un artista inventato e anche morto, che ha avuto numerose recensioni e una partecipazione alla Biennale di Venezia.
Su questa scia si sono formati altri movimenti come Serpicanaro, famosa stilista giapponese (e/o anagramma di san Precario) che e' riuscita a richiamare alla sua sfilata durante la settimana della Moda a Milano numerose presenze.
Internet offre la possibilita' a chiunque di reinventarsi una seconda vita, come il clamoroso "second life" con milioni di utenti che si sono riprogettati uno spazio virtuale su misura.
0100101110101101.org lavora su internet ricreando copie di siti esistenti, come biennale.py o vaticano.org o il recente unitedwestandmovie.com
dal sito su vaticano.org "The night of the 10th December 1998 begins the action that will go down in history as The First Internet Coup. Over 24 hours, a commando takes posses of the official online organ of information of the Vatican State, or the Holy See. The commando buys the domain name vaticano.org pointing it to a Canadian server, where has already been created a huge website esthetically identical to the official one (www.vatican.va) .
An editorial network works 24-7 with precise instructions: copy as many texts as possible from the official website, modify them slightly and publish them in the fake one.
Like the Pope, 0100101110101101.ORG has decided to open the Holy Doors of the Net to pilgrims from the whole world: from the moment in which Vaticano.org is opened, a huge stream of visitors pours into the fake website. Over one year the spoof website reaches more than 4 million hits: a one-year radical performance and the Net will never be the same."

Come scrive Germano Celant: "Il superamento dei confini tra realta' interiore e realta' esteriore, tra mondo vero e mondo apparente, lascia risplendere o dischiude una concezione della vita e dell’essere umano in cui i segni del corpo non vogliono dire nulla, perche' lo sforzo di interpretare una persona e' un tentativo inutile, la dinamicita' e il valore non dipendono dal mostrare ma dall’espressione e dai valori interni che sono occulti".
