Beautiful Interfaces: The Deep in the Void

Internet is a place where the Plato's World of Ideas is fully represented; there is all valid and real turning this virtual product in to a parallel world. We live in this space partially ignoring the “others”, mediated by interfaces and intuitive actions, passing between Backdoors or Zero-day attacks like we are unable to recognize the complex dynamic of the entire Internet thanks to our “friendly” vision of the surface network.

As a curator, I take the risk of bringing to the dark side of Internet – the Tor Network, a collection that exemplifies the influence and sensitivity of 16 artists around the interface’s concept into a place where the design of a enjoyable website is not the main thing, is all about information, data and how you can protected. From the inspiring and famous social network’s interfaces to mobile devices the artists shows us what they see as Beautiful Interfaces while the art makes its way to the deep.

Beautiful Interfaces' Curator

Miyö Van Stenis

My work explores from technological interfaces, the operating systems, softwares and other devices involved in the Internet everyday making them my aesthetic material. The existing interest in representing the relationship between humans and machines, poetry and computational science, turn my investigation in to a experimental work where the machine is expressing itself, as a kind of hyperbolic reflection of their world, first of all as an performative action where the value is the human action in pursuit of error, the unexpected, creating a meeting point between the human, the machine, the error and the undeniable desire of poetic beauty. 1989 Born in Caracas, Venezuela.
