It seems that digital technology can help us realize an already lost dream: the dream that everything can be realized. Digital technology seems to be the one tool for unlimited communication, smooth performance and absolute creativity. Much digital art seems furthermore to inscribe this lost promise with the neo-romantic dream, in which art is created by the inspired artist, who alone knows about the code secret and its limitless potentials. To counteract this trend and encourage collaboration between different artistic approaches, we transferred the Dogma tradition to the digital arts. Like all art, digital art is the freedom of self-imposed restrictions; not unlimited possibilities. Therefore, the installation Ff6b at Gallery Image obeys the following restrictions: The installation must be a laboratory being a process rather than a finished show. The visitor must be co-creator, since his presence and actions have influence on the installation. Only use real time video or audio data. Only use existing code from other or earlier works. The total budget must not exceed 8000 DKr. The installation should include a system-breakdown every 3 minutes.
Our project group consists of Signe Klejs, Anne Dyhr and Falk Heinrich. The three collaborators have very different artistic backgrounds and thus different functions in the projects.
