Dear friends & colleagues,

I'm glad to present "Metastasis/Ghost Touch" by +chris timms at the Widget Art Gallery on IPhone, IPad and OSX-Dashboard. January 22 - February 22, 2014. http://www.chiarapassa.it/upcoming.html

About the exhibition: "Metastasis/Ghost Touch" by Chris Timms.

Reconstruction of videos reporting iPad and iPhone touchscreen devices performing actions on their own... Artist website: http://www.chriscotimms.com

About the WAG:

The “WAG" is a mini 3-dimensional, single room gallery that fits into your pocket 'cause I've developed it for IPhone, IPod Touch and I Pad. Every month, directly on your mobile, The “WAG” hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to the dynamic site-specific contest. So, the Widget Art Gallery works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary
exhibitions and as a permanent collections museum because conserves all the past exhibitions inside an online archive. For IPhone and IPod touch, just copy this url http://www.chiarapassa.it/wag/mobile/ in Safari and choose: “add to home” and the WAG's icon will be saved on your IPhone. Do the same for IPad but paste this other URL: http://www.chiarapassa.it/wagipad/mobile/, or download the widget version for Mac osx dashboard at: http://www.chiarapassa.it/TheWidgetArtGallery.html
Past exhibitions at: http://the-widget-art-gallery.blogspot.com/

Best regards, Chiara.

While ago I published one GIF by Chris Timms I found on tumblr, this one. I was mesmerized about the flow, colors and forms. Then I started to follow his work through his tumblr called sensualobjects.tumblr.com where he only publish work made by him, it is a world full of organic objects who live and move according to the rhythm of the internet.
One week ago Chris has just launched a new visual work, a 01.55 min video piece which follows the same aesthetics of that previously named GIF

Chris Timms tells us more about this piece: ...

It seems like just a load of nothing, colours, eighties references, cats, maybe this reflects the nothing that is modern life, or the complexity of it. The job of young artist is to create something new, this never ending bloody backward looking nostalgia kitch, is the opposite of new, it's stuck in the recent past, it's sexless, loveless, passionless, as if to feel anything is an embarrasment. Ach yeah I'm off the game and it's only my interpretation, I don't like pissing on other people work, but it just seems so fucking neutered.

"Standard Features is a research based, collaborative group that uses fast paced, synergetic platforms for the exploration of ideas and the creation of new work. The content engages with issues concerning emerging visual cultures. The format utilises physical and online territories. Standard Features is currently based in Dublin, Ireland."

I mean come on, I appreciate there's a need for lingo, a degree of professional exclusive dialogue that communicates to others you are a professional, nudge-nudge, wink-wink, but this is only really relevant to other artists, maybe curators, isn't art supposed to be inclusive? There's nothing wrong with difficult culture, but I don't think there's anything difficult about this, what would the above be if the language was simplified? Do we need need to lay the bullshit on so thick, who does this serve, does this explain anything, or just make the meaning seem more deeper and profound than it actually is?

"Standard Features is a research based, collaborative group that uses fast paced, synergetic platforms for the exploration of ideas and the creation of new work" ie. We are a group of artists we look at stuff and talk about it to create new art.

"The content engages with issues concerning emerging visual cultures." What we make is about what's been made. Why? Why not make something instead, why not lead? The need for people to distract themselves from boring ass work watching silly videos of cats in cardboard boxes while (and forgive me if I'm coming across as a self righteous dick here, but well, I am a self-righteous dick) the fucking planet is being ruined and robbed from underneath us, we're like those rats they experimented on when they first surgically isolated the pleasure centres, their brains were cut open and wired up to these centres, they had four switches, for water, food, cocaine and the pleasure centre and they hit that pleasure switch until they died of malnutrition.

Your country is now on the hook for €300 billion of private debt: "oh look a puppy with a pirate patch"

Your choices are being penned in: "oh look a baby laughing at bubbles"

You're the first generation since WW2 who will be worse off than your parents, your children will be worse off too: "oh look, a gif of Mel Gibson twitching, LOL"

They're fucking destroying the planet and they're lying about it: "I fancy a wank, let's see "asian hot teen..."

They are pushing people to the point were they are turning into feral beasts, who deserve a fucking good old fashion cop beating, in Greece, in London, in America, in the Middle East: "LOL"

Fucking China, they're buying up Athlone, they're setting up camp, they're welcomed here with opened arms (and they're a lovely people to be honest, it's just their gov. who are merciless, pitiless, joyless, technocratic, cunts), and not one person said "boo" to their VP about Tibet I'm sure. They said in the end they'd turn into us, but they won't, it's impossible, 1.2 billion Chinese cannot live like 300 million Americans did in the 1950's, cheap energy is gone, our parents burnt it all. They're not becoming like us, we're becoming like them, less work, less pay, longer hours. "Oh you want a union do you? Yeah union my balls into your mouth then get back to fucking work!" It wasn't supposed to be like this, they said that when machines made work more efficient we'd work less hours, we'd be freer, happier, content. But noope, nope what they did instead was draft up GATT send all the jobs to Asia, load us up with debt and shovelled all the profits into the hands and pockets of a financial elite. They don't listen to us, they don't care and neither it seems does anyone else, except of course the usual fucking flaky hippie lefty half-wits, who's heads are filled with half-baked gobblegook about captialism being "like bad and unfair man": "ROLF"

50% youth unemployment, an entire generation doomed to the hideous, kafka-esque torture of a life of unemployment, a generation of worthless beggars, useless dis-intersted scum, who'll beget another generation of worthless begging scum, and so on, and so on, and so on: "LMAO"

Fascism, fucking fascist thinking, fascist watching is coming back, the German's are blaming the lazy Greeks (who by the by work on average 2000+ hours a year, the most in Europe), the generation who fought in WW2 have died and in their place are these hideous know nothing bland emotive morphites, like Blair, Ahern, Cameron, Beyoncé, Shia le Bouf, Jedward, those Twilight cunts and so on.

These are real, serious, defining times we're living in, only no one's defining them. It's all up for grabs, there to be taken, something wonderful can come out of this all before they shut it the fuck down, before they know exactly what you're doing, where you're doing it and what to do with that knowledge, before they really and truly fuck this planet up, but it won't be there for ever, it'll pass.

Maybe I'm getting it wrong, maybe "astral projection abduction fantasy" is all about that, it's about giving up, quiting, wanting the internet to take me away from all this. I mean why bother living at all? Take the child straight from the womb, cut open it's head, wire up it's brain, stick a pipe in it's guts and it's ass, throw it in a bucket and call that heaven on earth.

Anyway apologies Chris, this isn't directed at you persé, and yes I am in an extremely pissy mood these days. Good luck with the show.
