"Virtual Quilt"

An Interactive Art Project by
Clara Wainwright, Carmin Karasic and Rolf van Gelder

As part of the exhibition:
Clara Wainwright: Quiltmaker and Celebration Artist


DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park


"Throughout its history quilt-making has been viewed as a community-building activity as well as a form of communal creativity. The quilting bee, a gathering of people to construct a quilt, remains a way for people to interact in a group art process. Similarly, the origins of the Internet are community-building in nature. From the beginning, art made for the Internet has had an interactive aspect that allowed for group participation.

For this project, quiltmaker Clara Wainwright and the web artists Carmin Karasic and Rolf van Gelder have brought the communal creativity of the web and the quilting bee together in The Virtual Quilt: An Interactive Art Project. The entire online world is invited to participate in the creation of a virtual quilt that will be made into a real quilt and displayed here at DeCordova.

This quilt-process is the fabric version of the virtual quilt. Through the DeCordova Museum Web site, cyberspace visitors by design a square for the quilt online. On Tuesdays of each week, Clara Wainwright will print out the new square designs, create the squares in fabric, and stitch them to this quilt. You can follow the growth process of the quilt online.

Many thanks to Carmin Karasic and Rolf van Gelder for creating this virtual quilt, which allows us to expand the exhibition beyond the gallery walls."

d{s}eduction dialogue
cyberart installation, June 2000
by carmin karasic and rolf van gelder

This cyberart collaboration explores the relationships and correlations between replication, sex, power, and violence. This work is based on the collaborators' two different perspectives: the personal observations by a black American woman and a white European man.

Reality is based on perspective, as we perceive it to be. Perception is based on our cultural filters. Positioned as two simultaneously looping movies, the artists' visions confront each other's realities. Concepts of conquest and cooperation circle about the human drive for lineage preservation. Power has reproductive implications. Violence is used to gain power. Their comparisons of perceived power and control create a dialogue that concludes: sex is the primary root of war.

Inspiration:
Internet chat about the Kosovo bombings
