>> Very best, Chiara.
>> About the exhibition:
>> How to practice a show show of an un done show via de-of-ing of a show

>> description of a possibly simpler kind of practice.
>> The practice questions how elements such as art exhibition/show

>> way/technology for shared cultural imagining. In my version, the
>> shared cultural element is done through negotiative processes that, in
>> themselves, attempt to:
>> * offer a critique of the questions.
>> * allow the doing activities as positives, of various negative

>> * allow the possibility of self critique for the process.
>> * be the directional material for the practice. (i.e. to provide

>> organisation; a person Through a person to a machine to an
>> organisation, a person through code to many, a person to person to
>> many and the many to just one of these, and so on..)
>> To do the practice, at least in this 1st attempt, the process has
>> already began through negotiations between Chiara Passa - the WAG
>> curator - and me. (aharon) The negotiations were to do with the
>> general look, feel and activities in WAG, during the month of
>> practising at the gallery. Here are the .coded^^ files.
>> The gallery will contain:
>> * information of how to negotiate uploading of .coded artworld^ websites
>> * how to negotiate contacting relevant people & organisations to tell
>> them their material has been .coded
>> * documentation - if any - of negotiations regarding the .coding of
>> artworld sites.
>> * compressed files of .coded sites to download.
>> * the look, and reflections on it, of the WAG.
>> There are a fair few "artworlds" - e.g. http://plausibleartworlds.org/
>> to begin with.
>> In this instance, the practice is negotiating with the art environment
>> that is geared towards sustaining cultural activities - at times
>> critical as well - through numerical & power motivated investments &
>> gains. (ie an art environment that is mainly interested in the
>> transcendence of cultural elements into various forms of power, rather
>> than an interest in, for example, forms of art..)
>> .coded (DotCoded) files are documents that their extensions was
>> changed to .code. This is done to indicate that people can open these
>> files as the binary or text code they are stored with. The intention
>> is to view the code rather than the image/s or read the text, etc..
