IT IS AN ART TO MAKE ART

[biennale.NO 2020] is a biennale that does not take place and [… at the same time] disseminates works which do[…] not exist. It is headquartered in the village Gol in Norway. It is a contemporary art biennale that thematizes virtuality, and is virtual itself. To put it sharper, the biennale has the motto that it both takes place and doesn’t take place, and in every possible way [at] places at the same time. The biennale is distributed and decentralized as collaborative nodes, and based on an artist-driven DIY practice independent of institutions. (**)

a hash could be n0b13nn413 for example. no nobie nn 413. error code 413 is payload too large. https://httpstatuses.com/413 . maybe get biennale.NO to produce the 413 response?  413: “If the condition is temporary, the server SHOULD generate a Retry-After header field to indicate that it is temporary and after what time the client MAY try again”… and go on calculating and calculating and calculating after how long they may Retry… the calculation could go on for 2 years? of course no one would stay on the page for 2 years! think it would be cool to try to implement it, or at least to fake the behaviour with some header scripts. (*)

The theme is virtuality in a broad sense, the biennale and its content being virtual themselves. An interpretation would be that the biennale both takes place and doesn’t take place, and in all possible places simultaneously. The dissemination of the biennale is done through the unique hashtag #n0b13nn413 which can be seen both as a unique hash, but also consisting of ‘nobie NN 413’, relating to non-existence, anonymity, and HTTP error code 413: Payload too large, linking several properties of the net into one hash, with the unbearable lightness of it all. The lightness becomes unbearable, the wings grow cobwebs, the deepfake mindfucking of the media scrolls. It is already a place that doesn’t take place, with things that don’t exist. Perhaps a world of mere representation, a redundant double where nothing further happens. The whole of internet weighs less than 100 grams as electrons in motion. Is even our reverence of mathematics ill founded, the counting and the continuum? Motion paradoxes of the digital binary, or even the virtual? How is the potentiality related to its collapse into existence?

Parmenides: What is is, what isn’t isn’t. Zenon: But what is it? It neither is nor isn’t. If you say it is then it isn’t, and if you say it isn’t then it is. Parmenides: What is is always, the same, unmoving, without distinctions. Zenon: Are we talking about the same thing? Parmenides: We must be. Zenon: Then I don’t know what we’re talking about. (*)
