MADRID DIGITAL ART MUSEUM
While elaborating our project, we tried from the beginning to consider and understand the changes that technology has implied during recent years in artistic image, and how architectural space could contribute to the knowledge and archiving of a digital art form.Despite the incredible diversity of disciplinary contributions involved in such an art form, technology plays a central role, on which art reflects: the process itself, in short, is the artwork, and interaction throughout interfaces is its ultimate meaning.
If we had to think completely in utopian terms and not responding to any specific building requirements, the solution we would better strive would have been a completely open space not being an architectural enclosure with the external environment. We would have hoped that its contents could be completely stored within a server connected to the Internet, open to everyone, everywhere. Rather being only an artworks container it could be an ‘interface’.
Our project instead aims to be a ‘meta-museum’, which in addition to have an online storage system, has a web page that represents a selection of art materials and allow individuals everywhere in the world to upload and submit their own installations, video documentation, discussions, and that through the museum’s envelope, be returned to the city and to the local reality of Lavapies. Being as a large public display, it can also resubmit information to its virtual site and to the world wide web.
