This is not art. This is lame. Is this not lame? This is art.

write - ä - read - ada - netart server

So what's happen here at ? Netart is a kind of (electronic) art which uses the media internet as playground to the artists (alternative) points of view. So don't expect to find documentations on common art like "Picasso Scans Gallery" here ;-) The Aim of is to set up a general entrancepoint (portal) for people who are interessted in netart projects on one hand and to start the work of archiving like a virtual museum on the other hand. is ment as a "container" - a skeleton, which is being fulfilled and enhanced by the decentral input of the users that are focused on mediaart/netart. In opposite to other (media/net)Art or Cultureservers and commercial Searchengines, - center for hardwired arts takes a new way between refering to friends linklists and technological/context-missing architectures of common searchengines. The database content is not blown up by automatic searchrobots nor shrink by the single objectivity of a editorial staff. The maxime of is autonomity, as this ensure the maximum of objectivity on nowadays netart. Beside the art database, the server underlines the autonomous usage by the users in many ways, such as collaborative titlecovers, filesharing, discussion board and even the error messages (404 File not found) can be customized by the vistitors.

Sorry about messing up your cool site with my proposition

Hi and cheers for the reply, The idea I have is as follows: Before we start I am not doing this to make cash.!!!!!!! Have you ever gone into a bar or cafe and saw the free post card stands ? Most cards are stylish, don't advertise on the front and are free. There is a company in London making a fortune providing this service. Their service is extremely expensive and does not cover the area that I want to correctly: i.e. Glasgow Scotland. Also they want a minimum run of 27,000 cards which I and most other small businesses can't afford . I want to offer a similar service in the Glasgow area, for Glasgow businesses but one that they can afford. Images should be fun, meaningful, stylish, avante garde, popish etc and designed to attract interest. Each artists who joins the project will be given a link on my Web Site once it is complete or a small amount of Webspace on my site if they don't have their own homepage. All works will be considered and I am not easily offended. All works will be credited to the artist !!! My contact details will be on the back of each card and I will forward interest on to the artist at no charge or commision, unless the artist feels I deserve it! What I and the other businesses get is a chance to promote our business using a novel medium, without paying extreme charges. Artists get 5-10,000 postcards with their work sent around the world,and a chance to show off ! I think no one looses. I am still trying to find a printer and agree a format for the art work but it will probably be Tiff, high quality Jpeg or photo quality based. Beginning in September, I intend to put 10 racks with 10 bays into 10 Glasgow bars as a trial, at my own cost. I will put the first 10,000 cards out with my own design and believe it or not this is still only half the cost of getting the London agency to do it. If this works I would hope to convince 10 businesses a month to use the service and expand it to more Glasgow bars if successful. The idea is to make it low profit so small businesses like mine can afford it. I think it is a cool way of advertising and a cool way for artists to get exposure! If you can support it or know friends who might also want to; Email

Marble Lady.

Marble Lady. In his art, Jaisini insists on overcoming of the dehumanization, the suppression of sensuality. In every historical period there are ideas and problems which are expressed and will not come to pass. Jaisini seeks to identify this idea in the present, excavate it from the past, and invent it in a new way for the future. In the murky, anxious world of ours, in the midst of the soul's confusions and the multiplying moral losses, the artist seeks and always finds some big and small islands of "eternal truths," and asserts the indestructible age-long parables that reveal these truths in the new light, in his own system of sign-images. I realized that the more you look at "Gleitzeit" works and think, the more you see, feel, and understand, but never completely, as given work always has too many aspects. There is always some kind of "space" in the painting, on which the observer feels free, without a persistent prompting of the artist, to use his own system of perception. To me, "Marble Lady" seems as a late modern modification of the Greek myth of the sculptor Pygmalion, who used his illusionist skill to satisfy a private fantasy of the ideal woman. Disappointed by the imperfections of the opposite sex, he created Galatea out of marble and during a festival in honor of Venus, Pygmalion prayed for a woman as perfect as his statue. Venus answered his prayer by bringing his statue to life and eliminated the boundary between reality and illusion. In Jaisini's "Marble Lady," the object of the intense desire remains alluring, yet perpetually distant. Desire of the others is often imagined in terms of a fetish. The so-called civilized man can be considered in his delight of female form. In "Marble Lady," we find the two types of spectatorship: the masculine and the non-masculine. Therefore, an image of the woman is defined through the desire of both spectators, the unmanly poet and the savage who may well be a subscriber to "Penis Power Quarterly." The statue of Galatea was and still is the symbol of fictional perfection, a result of the search for ideal woman that parallels the artist's own creative urge. A post-feminist culture has found out a way to reinvent the woman as she once was: eager to appear physically attractive, the man-made woman. The "Marble Lady" enables male domination by being unreachable and desirable. The construction of such a female identity fiction can inspire both high and low natures. In all of his works, Jaisini unites the high and low principles, integrating art into the material life, breaking out of art's ivory tower. "Marble Lady" is a compact, pyramidal composition of the "trio." As in all of his works, Jaisini subdues the figures to the articulation of line and its rhythmic connection between forms in space, a sort of analytical process, based on the line swinging which starts up ideas, shapes, and colors. The line arabesques are these highly individual textures of Jaisini's art. A decorative role of the painting's color is to create the temperature contrast of the heated environment with the marble-cold statue. In modern and postmodern times, there are increasingly fewer outlets for sensual urges and desires which lay at the origin of human society that imposes restrictions. Sexuality remained beyond the scope of most art history. Interaction between male and female is still responsible for the continued functioning of the universe.
