It Was All Very Impressive
This domain hosts iterations of loosely connected website-based works that consider our access to information and access to particular histories.
Part II of It Was All Very Impressive was only ever accessible as a projection within a physical gallery space. The mouse cursor couldn’t be controlled by the user, and rested in the middle of the screen as the website was programmed to automatically scroll and display its sub-projects one after another. One sub-project was a constantly rearranging digital museum whose collection contained every 3d-scanned object made available online by major art institutions. Another was a series of generated digital paintings composed of randomly layered fragments from the digital museum. The next two projects were composed of digital forms floating across the screen. ‘It Was All Very Impressive’ looked to create a lineage for this body of 3d-scanned objects, one that exists alongside and perhaps in lieu of, its current proposed history. Since then, the documentation of the temporarily available website has been made available as a short film in screenings and online, and as a printed edition.
Part I of It Was All Very Impressive only existed online for a day in 2015 as a series of digital artworks loosely broken down into chapters. Since then, the documentation of the temporarily available website has been made available as a short film in screenings and online, and as a printed edition.
