The Church of The Unconnected – LEVEL FIVE: INTERNS OF THE INTERNET

29 November 2013

Miltos Manetas, Looking at the Blackberry, 2013, Oil on Canvas, 200x300cm, Rome, Italy.

 

The interns of the Internet Pavilion are not basic invigilators. They are connectors. Human devices for knowledge and communication. Sensitive and active search engines. They are interns 2.0. Interns of the internet, like all of us, the connected! Maybe even more so. 

Level Five is dedicated to them. Indeed they became our Human Google Images, making the association game below possible. Scrolling down this page, you will discover a short history of the objects Western men huddled around, as if around a bonfire.

LOOKING AT LOOKING AT THE BLACKBERRY 

Dear Professor,
I am collaborating with the III Internet Pavillon, a Miltos Manetas’ project presented on the occasion of the 55th Venice Biennale.I am working on an iconography research concerning the painting “Looking at the Blackberry” which is displayed inside the exhibition. Please find a picture attached.
I would like to ask you to report me another work of art – not necessary a painting – that remember you the one mentioned above. The result of this research, with your contribution and your name, will be published in www.neromagazine.it
Thanking you in advance,
Best Regards
Karen Barbieri
