Interface Space

Exploring the intimate relationships people have with their computers, Design Observer takes a look at art that comments on the two-dimensional interfaces of modern life. Some work, like Hans Gremmen and Monique Gofer's Empty Trashcan (pictured), translate the screen into sculpture, while others, like Danh Vo's email exchange with artist Robert Gober, makes the everyday design of Hotmail into an art piece. The works Design Observer presents are a thoughtful summation of the influences that the digital world has on our lives, on art and on ourselves. The Kevin Zucker-curated 2004 group show Emoticons is also a good place to look at the ways computers are changing visual language itself.
