chasealias institute: Chase Alias :: Re-examining Reality to Repurpose Identity as Art by DS Pollack

chasealias institute: Chase Alias :: Re-examining Reality to Repurpose Identity as Art by DS Pollack



a Re-examination of Reality for the Creative(s) Use of Identity

DS Pollack, a Performance Artist, spends extended periods of time studying his characters. Often living in their homes and wearing their clothing. It has become a ritualistic part of his method acting technique. The Performance Art Itself comes in any form, whether it is one on one, online chat, live and/or recorded video or audio. Pollack adds to genres of Performance Art and Net Art the dimensions of the "social network" and the possibility that humans can be anyone they choose to be.

This topic of using multiple identities and alters has become a vital point in the cloud computing security lexicon. Causing many to question Pollack's motives, often calling his work 'identity-fraud' and a 'violation of corporate policy'. Yet, as it stands, the ability for an Artist to create a character, "IS" freedom of speech and if a 'Corporate Policies' are in truth violating people's first amendment rights. then this work has served a very valid purpose. The protection of Freedom of Expression, Speech and the Net Art.

Defining Net Art for Net Prix by DS Pollack


An interesting thread has been popping up on my email these days. I guess there is a sort of ongoing conversation about the defining of Net Art. It's based around the application process for Net Prix. Which last year attempted to ask for that very deffinition. I have been carefully listening for my opportunity to chime in.

The moderation is wonder. Particularly in the interpretation of the need for Net Art to have greater resemblance to Art in general. As in having a need to take into a account the viewers response, reaction and interaction. Agreed. This is where I define Net Art, Alter Art(alter-ism), Conceptual Art and Particularly Dada Style Performance Art which when executed online as Net Art can hope to fulfill these issues.

Questioning the Reality of Identity : Alter Art (alter-ism) Becomes a Mise en Scene for Chase Alias

MHDR Still-life utilizing Hitchcockian P.O.V. to explore Self and Question Personal Identity through Artistic Perspective.

Chase Alias' Immersionism and Alter Art(alter-ism) questions the reality of identity. Particularly when considering that a being’s own existence is as a "Vessel" carrying the Art's Ideas driven by Immersion Journalist and New Media Artist D S Pollack.

Cyber and actual space/time have so many barriers. Yet the ability to create one's own existence "as" Art is imperative. Especially if humanity wishes to ensure the stability of culture and ensure freedom of speech.

Dorothea Tanning by Alix Olson

Dorothea Tanning by Alix Olson

"There's this Dorothea Tanning painting and the arm is barely breaking through."

-Alix Olson, Dorothea Tanning

Beautiful and haunting. Alix Olson the visual art of surrealist Dorothea Tanning as a metaphor. However it feels more like she uses it as a ready made work of art. Making try the art her her own. If I didn't look know better it seems as though miss Olson has single handedly immortalized the works of surrealist Tanning.

The blog of Dorothea Tanning is art the very concept that Olson and Tanning could actually be a singularity works for me and as a work of Alter Art(alter-ism). Then again I may be just laying out a diagram or a style for others to follow. Of course I realize that Dorothea Tanning Actually Existed, Painted, Lived(to Over 100), Loved(Married Max Ernst) and is totally deserving of all the praise. She certainly is a worthy artist. I am commenting on the simple concept of reality and the way Alter-ism can be used to question reality.

Either way. Have a look.
