[Nettime-bold] behavior panorama

"Behavior Panorama"  

The effective actions and customs in the network, practiced by its 30 million daily 
users, have been negotiated to establish the still young parameters of conduct that 
are developed in it. These, turn to the participants into "netiziens" divided into 
diverse assemblies of different identities. The derived products from the descriptions 
of these customs, which are part of the study of the ethnography, happen into a new 
cultural property: a daily practice which comprise of the complex development that 
gives form to a civilization.  
This way --framed into an democratization of the utilitarian, artistic and commercial 
productions atmosphere as is the network--, this reunion of digital objects becomes 
an allegorical diorama of the manifestations of our time, where each user tries to 
disclose their own identity that reflects its conduct within this new extension of 
our habitat: the cyberspace.  
newculturalproperty.html is not an exhibition of art, but a count of related contemporary 
virtual manifestations of the conduct of a specific web group. This exhibition tries 
to give a panorama of these frequent habits by means of the digital objects produced 
by its cultural organizations, that can be a person, a group or an institution.  
Among the appearing manifestations in the show there are programming which take care 
of very diverse practical necessities, like virtual pets and models, exhibitions 
and specific web communities, as well as search engines and data bases done by artists. 
All of them fulfill an utilitarian function that turns them into a new part of our 
cultural property, in that exerts a different communitarian identification: a detonating 
that connects its participants by homogeneity of conduct.  
For a better understanding of these digital objects three different groupings have 
settled down:  
o "Independent Identities or the Representation of the Cybernetic Conduct" are 
that because of their properties, functions to demonstrates and reflect the way "neticienz" 
are, which is evident through its personages who only exist by means of the network 
o "Functional Spaces" combines structures of dialogue around, where each 
subject makes its opinion tangible on how the network proceedings must be constructed. 
o "Common Recognition" associates spaces of dialogue exposed through parallel communities 
and "open-source" works where the digital objects are produced collectively, doing 
a common effort that  happens in a democratic verification of each individual thoughts.
