mapping transitions proposal
Lisa Jevbratt is a Swedish research theorist, systems and Internet artist. Her projects and collaborations have been exhibited and presentedinternationally. These projects explore data mining, organizational structures, information filtering, data organization and mapping, aesthetic, political, and cultural implications of the languages and protocols of emerging technologies. She is a member of C5 and a board member of the New Langton Arts Gallery in San Francisco where she is curating the Net Work program. Jevbratt has an MFA in Computers In Fine Art from the CADRE Institute at San Jose State University, where she is currently teaching. C5 is a Silicon Valley based ensemble of artists and academics which devise theoretical models, analysis and tactical implementations of technology for assessment and information mapping.
Jevbratts works include A Stillman Project for the Walker Art Center; an alternative navigational instrument, and the 1:1 project, which contains the IP addresses to all hosts on the World Wide Web. This project uses the database to create five interfaces for navigating the web and to generate a new topography of the web. This work is featured in the 2002 Whitney Biennial Exhibition.
Jevbratts works and collaborations essentially create new imagery by reorganizing the oceans of data on the Internet and other created networks in unique ways. By looking into the metastreams and machine instructions that go on behind the scenes of http, new models of graphic interfaces and visual representations can emerge. Theory becomes concrete using data as the medium. Information on Lisa Jevbratt and C5 can be found at:
