<nettime-ann> [ann] First Facebook Sculpture

Facebook Sculpture: (c) merry, 2013
temporal metrical sculpture

Hello, I am (c) merry and I am Internet artist.

I was invited to participate on Chloà Flores curatorial project called
âChloà Flores facebook pageâ as artist in residence for this August.
The residency is taking place on facebook, on user profile of Los
Angeles based curator Chloà Flores. Every month, new artist is using
the space provided by her profile in different manner.

Because of my deep interest in facebook-based net art and background
in cinema studies, I've decided to use this opportunity to create
temporal metrical sculpture.

That is, probably the very first sculpture on facebook - made on
facebook out of facebook, following its structure and discourse. And
of course, perceivable only on facebook.

I would be honored if you could spare a moment to see my work.

The sculpture will be performed between August the 1st and August
31st, 2013 on facebook.com/itsallbeendonebefore, and can be perceived
only during this time.

You can discover more about the project on its website
(https://sites.google.com/site/facebooksculpture/). The site already
contains background information on the project and its inspirations,
"Kaderplan" for the sculpture and more. During the
residency/performance, it will be supplemented with detailed
documentation on the project and public reactions.

With respect,

(c) merry
