Museum Futures: Distributed - is a machinima record of the centenary interview with Moderna Museet’s executive Ayan Lindquist in June 2058. It explores a genealogy for contemporary art practice and its institutions, by re-imagining the role of artists, museums, galleries, markets, manufactories and academies.

The project was commissioned by Moderna Museet Stockholm, Sweden, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary in 2008.

Self Portrait: Arnolfini













address data spriteAs part of the Samsung Art+Prize, I  tweeted the whole of the data sprite timeline of Self Portrait: Arnolfini.  


Recalled from composite memory on the eve of our centenary in 2061, three relational threads are intertwined;

1. social and financial organisation

2. technological innovation

3. art and its institutions

The complete timeline of institutional self consciousness, 2061-1831; starts with riots.

You can read a data sprite snippet, or see the beautiful book designed by Stephen Coates, published by Arnolfini and available from Cornerhouse.
