Über die Library of the Printed Web hatte ich schonmal vor ein paar Monaten gebloggt, letztlich ist das eine Tumblr-Sammlung über Künstler „who use screen capture, image grab, site scrape and search query to create printed matter from content found on the web.“ Das gibt's jetzt auch als gedrucktes Artefakt im Tageszeitungsformat. Schick!
Housed in a wooden display crate in Long Island, the Library of the Printed Web is ‘a collection of works by artists who use screen capture, image grab, site scrape and search query to create printed matter from content found on the web.’
The collection includes zines of Twitter feeds and photography books compiling images from Google Street View. The proprietor is Paul Soulellis, an artist and creative director based in New York who began accumulating ‘web culture articulated as printed artifact’ in 2013. Soulellis presented a very interesting talk about the Library of the Printed Web at the opening of 57th Venice Biennale and recently published Printed Web #1, the first publication devoted to web-to-print art and discourse. The 64-page tabloid newspaper is available in The Newsagent now for £13 including delivery.
