The window is seen as the borderline between inside and outside, between the private and the public domain, but also as the transparence between these spheres. This exhibition presents the digital transmission to the urban pulse and image by showing the videos in the big front window of Senko Studio in Viborg. Simultanously the videos are shown ‘full screen’ at www.senko.dk.

We call the interface on the internet ‘browserwindow’. It is the way in and the way out of the virtual scape; an opening and a closure. We open up to new information and experiences. We use the functionality ‘refresh’ if we want to update the content. And with “Close Window. Refresh” as the title for this exhibition I want to reflect on the interference and the transcoding the internet has on our daily reality.

The artists are all from the international digital art scene and embrace the theme from an aesthetic, humorous, social or/and political point of view.

Mogens Jacobsen (Denmark): ”Bridge”, 2003

Mogens Jacobsen starts this series with the algorithmic film ”Bridge”. ”Bridge” is based on a collage of still-images of buildings in Japan. The scanning of the original image is the only movement in the film and this movement creates a slow and soft digital abstraction of the Asian megapolis.

In the 1990ties Mogens was primarily operating within net.art. And in 1995 he was a founding member of the Danish art group “The Artnode Foundation”. In the beginning of the current millennium, he grew tired of the GUI (graphical user interface) as an artistic medium. From that time he has mainly been working with networked physical installations. His ”Hørbar” is currently exhibited at ”You_ser” at ZKM in Germany.
