A web project and exhibition developed during DEAF00 (2000).



Protocollision was online from November 1st through to December 31st 2000

Featuring websites by: Akitsugu Maebayashi, doubleNegatives, exonemo, Mami Iwasaki, Yuki Kimura (JP) Daniel Rodenburg, D.U.M.B., Gabrielle Marks & Stefan Kunzmann, Jodi, 0010 (NL) with Webmasters: Squint

PROTOCOLLISION can be described as a "work in progress" by Japanese and Dutch webartists, curators, programmers and theoreticians and public. During two months, the website, which is created especially for this occasion, will constantly change and expanded with individual and collective sites and textual contributions.

Squint is responsible for the basic site in the form of a database, becoming more layered as the number of works increase. Initially the participating artists will develop autonomous websites. These are sites that explore the (im)possibilities of the medium from various angles, such as: the working of language(generators) and databases, the (il)logic of searchengines, sound as an interface and programs as a means of visual communication.

Because the contributions are both Japanese and Dutch it is especially interesting to view the possible similarities and differences in the methods of working and the results of the works: are cultural differences erased when making use of such a globally orientated medium or do they reappear instead?

In addition to these basic sites there is space for collaboration between the participants; for linking, copying and interfering with each other 's works: these are the locations where protocols are traversed, where a collision is forced. Various respondents have been invited, from programmer and cultural-philosopher to internet-critic, to follow the developments and contribute textual donations.

Naturally the public also has the opportunity to respond! As of November 1st the entire site will be globally accessible to anyone with an internet-connection. The various participants will by then have laid a foundation. These works-in-progress will continue to develop in the ensuing two months; the faithful follower of PROTOCOLLISION can check on changes daily.

Selection of Japanese artists: Kazunao Abe & Yukiko Shikata
Selection of Dutch artists: CELL - Initiators of Incidents -.
