a festival for all and none


Igor Štromajer participating with 3¦×Fń–Qé3 = Mià+ • eight computer/procedurally-generated post-¹, proto-², algorithmic, meta-pop³ pseudo-songs • video set



3¦×Fń–Qé3 = Mià+ is a procedurally generated meta-pop music and video set by Igor Štromajer and his computers, both sung and performed by them. The lyrics for the songs were code extracted from jpeg images and converted into texts. The music was procedurally/computer-generated using various algorithms and applications that automatically converted the lyrics to music (text-to-music) and combined the resulting music with the sung lyrics. In the same process, the lyrics themselves became singable, they were given melodies (text-to-singing).

“Igor Štromajer: a=tF² · To find the art (a), you multiply the time (t) by the square of the force (F)”


This volume of the The Large Glass compares various contributions on ‘The new reality’, a reality, which has been shaped by events throughout 2020 and 2021. Starting from the early period of the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns, closed borders coupled with forms of social antagonism, struggles, discrimination and exclusion of people from economic activity and political participation, as well as the ongoing climate emergency and ecological destruction. This challenging context not only creates a political emergency, but also an artistic state of emergency.

NETescopio • Algoritmia

Algoritmia | Art in the era of AI
MEIAC (Extremadura and Ibero-American Museum of Contemporary Art)
Badajoz, Spain, 19 February – 2 May 2021
Curator: Gustavo Romano

Publication of the catalogue: September 2021

Some NETescopio artists (Arcángel Constantini, Giselle Beiguelman, Maite Cajaraville, Belén Gache, Daniel García Andújar, Eduardo Kac, Igor Štromajer), pioneers of net art, were invited to answer the following question:

Q: “We live immersed in an irreversible digitalization process that has accelerated during the last 25 years, with the appearance of the WWW. We have seen the emergence of a whole series of complex dynamics derived from the actions of new human-technological assemblages, artificial intelligence and new algorithms that regulate all types of exchanges. In the field of art, technology should no longer be considered as a production tool, but as the environment within which works are produced.
In this context, what do you think that have been the most defining changes in these 25 years? How do you experience them as an artist and how do they affect your production? What differences do you find between creating in the late 1990s and creating now?”

In 1996, Štromajer used an animated gif of a spinning cube in his first net art work 0.html. 25 years later, Sakrowski reprogrammed and remodeled it into an augmented reality artwork.


On the occasion of the launch of the new platform, presents a hybrid group exhibition with experimental Augmented Reality works. The open platform makes it easy to exhibit, collect and discuss Augmented Reality works and allows artists to sell their works as NFTs. Since the platform is organized as a cooperative, profits will be shared among the artists. As part of the project openAR, the exhibition and platform have been developed in collaboration between workshop participants and digital artists Jeremy Bailey, Sarah Buser and Tamás Páll. The works examine the possibilities of AR technology in artistic applications. Visual, acoustic and performative Augmented Reality formats can be experienced in the exhibition.
