Varvara and myself have received a very nice email from Pete over at IDEEËN in New York to let us know they have updated their website with the a/w09 season.
Pete included this invitation in the email, which is very nice, really like all the gradiented boxes. Be sure to check out the website as it has some very nice stuff on there.
“XYM is a web-based project bringing you the longest short-term temporary and transient yet constant database of possibilities to download each individual Portable Data Format (.pdf) Artists Publication. Presenting a wide range of artists with a multi-disciplinary content, each issue is specifically created for the project, where one artist becomes the author and editor of a history making free-downloadable pdf file with a rapidly nearing best before date and incubation as its’ future.
Activated on its’ moment of release on www.xym.no, individually varying but at the same time permanent countdown periods are programmed to each publication with innumerable possibilities between one second and infinity. Within the given format, not exceeding the desktop-printable A4 and a download friendly 25 MB, a self-generating arts periodical creates a launching base for a diverse number of artistic projects, literally functioning between the margins of your computer screen and the edges of your desk.”
I am pretty sure this is the same Alban Schelbert that Varvara and myself met whilst out in Amsterdam last summer, if so, hes a really nice chap, and as for his work, well its all amazing!
