The internet tribe abandoned the global village when it started to resemble a shopping mall. After the digital natives were promised that their new ideas would lead to fame and success on global markets, they are now confronted with totalitarian networks and corporate structures. Consequently they turned their heads away from the screen. Facebook owns the copyrights to their ideas, shared infinitely to ultimately disappear in the clouds.

Among all the possible realities imaginable, artists start to look for common ground in products, hardware and brands – commodities made from global materials. A form of recursive materialism emerges. The common ground between seven billion people is that we can all share a micro USB connector. An empty coke bottle will be found in the desert sands and nomads navigate the dunes with a Samsung tablet. Global materials seem to override all fantasies of unique visions and subjective expressions.

But the internet tribe moves to the outskirts of physical production, reusing artifacts from the world of corporate mythologies. They work with concepts of the “Archaic” instead of “New”, choosing to be ‘poorsumers’, transforming ideological waste into something magical. For them, art is a poetic freight and the trade system a collective parable of desire. By imitating commodities in almost shamanic rituals, a higher form of cargo is summoned: be it future wealth, success, or art itself.

With technology invented to fly us to the moon we write LMAO.

After the digital natives were promised fame and success on global markets, they are now confronted with totalitarian networks and corporate structures. They turn their heads away from the screen, as content will be shared infinitely to ultimately disappear in the clouds. Artists scattered around the globe start to look for common grounds in material culture.

The common ground between seven billion people seems that we can all share a micro USB connector. An empty coke bottle will be found in the desert sands and nomads navigate the dunes with a Samsung tablet. Global materials seem to override all phantasies of unique expression, they are consequently identified as new sources for a hyperethnicity formed on the web.

These so called “poorsumers” moved to the outskirts of physical production, re-using and infiltrating artifacts from the world of corporate mythologies. They work with concepts of the “Archaic” instead of “New”, transforming ideological waste into something magical. By processing brands and products in almost shamanic ways, a higher form of cargo is summoned: Be it future wealth, success or even art.

“An approach to the now which looks widely, sharply, and especially at global materials ripe for use by our village of disenfranchised consumers.” Angus McCullough
