Conceptual, witty and intelligent, with a humorous twist: y-a-v-a.org considers his addiction to low culture, morality, art and nonsense in pixel generators, tweet bots, blog posts and other web manifestations.
In an inventive and agile manner, y-a-v-a.org maneuvers himself as a cheerful cynic through intellectualism and absurdity, using remix, trash and alternative economic models in a game where power, conventions and art come together.
There is no "art piece", only change. The pixels are the message. We echo the internet through our filters and as the web changes, our websites change. The web gives to us, we give back to the web: from www to .com and back again. We do not search, we serve.
The y-a-v-a.tumblr.com site is an art blog, but not a regular one. Images of paintings of Western Art are compressed to the smallest JPEG compression possible. This is a compression level of 0 (zero). The JPEG compression is an invention that reduces the size of digital image data strongly, which makes images very portable. The downside of this compression method is that you loose detail, so the quality of the image is reduced. These paintings are reduced to the heaviest JPEG compression, which results in major loss of detail. This, in fact, creates new visions on art, or rather, reinvents existing art works into new visuals. Since 2014.
I can be found by Google, therefore I exist. 710 artists are queried in Google. The result counts of these queries maken up this popularity list. In real time, changing along with the internet. Made together with ax710.
Vilmos Huszár's painting was the inspiration for this piece from y-a-v-a. All positions of the skaters are nodes on a graph. The nodes have different connections so there is a Hamiltonian cycle possible. These Hamiltonian cycles are calculated by a recursive script that searches through all connections. In this case there are about 1380 cycles. The painting is built up bij processing each found Hamiltonian cycle.
