89plus is a long-term, international, multi-platform research project co-founded by Simon Castets and Hans Ulrich Obrist. It is conceived as a mapping of the generation born in or after 1989. Without forecasting artistic trends or predicting future creation, 89plus manifests itself through panels, books, periodicals and exhibitions, bringing together individuals from a generation whose voices are only starting to be heard, yet which makes up almost half of the world’s population.Marked by several paradigm-shifting events, the year 1989 saw the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the start of the post-Cold War period; the introduction of the World Wide Web and the beginning of the universal availability of the Internet, as well as the orbit of the first Global Positioning System satellite. Positing a relationship between these world-changing events and creative production at large, 89plus introduces the work of some of this generation’s most inspiring protagonists.Since an introductory panel held in January 2013 at the DLD – Digital, Life, Design conference in Munich, 89plus has conducted research in Australia with Kaldor Public Art Projects and Hong Kong with Art Basel’s Salon series. In partnership with the Park Avenue Armory in New York, 89plus selected visual artist and curator Alex Dolan to be artist-in-residence during the Armory’s Under Construction series, taking place in September 2013.Open call
89plus announces an open call for artists, writers, architects, filmmakers, musicians, designers, scientists and technologists. There is only one rule: you must be 89plus—born in or after 1989. The open call is hosted at www.89plus.com.Submissions are kept on a private research database for consideration by the project’s co-curators. As the project continues in the years to come, those selected will be notified of their inclusion in new endeavours.Submissions are welcome at any time, however the mid-year deadline for 2013 activities is July 30, 2013.
www.89plus.com is kindly supported by DLD – Digital, Life, Design.
89plus is partnering with DIS Magazine for a special DIScrit 89plus, which will be announced shortly.
The 89plus Marathon: Friday 18 & Saturday 19 October 2013
The 89plus Marathon will be the eighth in the Serpentine Gallery’s annual Marathon series, an ambitious event that brings together the fields of art, culture, science and technology. Previous Marathons were theInterview Marathon, 2006 (with Rem Koolhaas); the Experiment Marathon, 2007 (with Olafur Eliasson); theManifesto Marathon, 2008; the Poetry Marathon, 2009; the Map Marathon, 2010; the Garden Marathon, 2011 and last year’s Memory Marathon.
The Serpentine Gallery Marathon series was conceived by Co-Director Hans Ulrich Obrist in 2006 and is deeply intertwined with the annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion Commission, launched by Director Julia Peyton-Jones in 2000.
The 89plus Marathon is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Simon Castets and Jochen Volz.

Energy drink maker Red Bull has approached Seattle Parks and Recreation about making a community investment that would include commissioning an artist to design and fabricate a unique piece of skate-able art. At the meeting, Seattle Parks presented the history of the proposed project, followed by an opportunity for the public to weigh in on the idea.
Myrtle Edwards Park is located at 3130 Alaskan Way on the shoreline of Elliott Bay, north of the Olympic Sculpture Park.
The Citywide Skatepark Plan, developed in 2006 and 2007 with extensive public process, designated Myrtle Edwards as a recommended site for a skatedot [editor: which is apparently smaller than a skatepark]. Since 2007, Seattle Parks and Recreation has constructed eight new skate parks and skatedots. Two more are in construction and design.
A second follow-up meeting is planned in June.

Yesterday, we posted a video on how to do a reverse image search using TinEye. Artist Corrine Bayraktaroglu also alerted us to the online tool Google Reverse Image Search. She wrote: “Early in May, I had read somewhere that you can do a reverse image search on Google. So I tried it, and was shocked to find one of my photographs on a slide show for school digital backgrounds. Doing a reverse image search can help you find your images even if the infringer has renamed the file or stripped away the data. I continue to find other images being exploited and used for music covers, in music videos, by art and craft companies, etc.”
Corrine sent us a photo of her original easel painting portrait of her daughter. She keeps the painting in her home. Corrine wrote: “For privacy/professional reasons I don’t want to use my daughter’s name or photograph” published online at this time. The photo above shows a larger version of Corrine’s portrait painting of her daughter displayed in a street art project. However, the artist is convinced that the Zearle Youthful Folly album cover art is not only her easel painting version of the portrait, but also her own photograph of her easel painting that she had once posted to her blog and not a photograph of the street art version of her art. “Nobody could have taken the image (used on the album cover), the photo is based on an interior shot, the lighting would be a very different and a crisper version (of the image) had it been taken outdoors. Plus the person responsible has admitted to using my photo in his email to me. When I posted the photo online it was blurred (just as on the album cover),” Corrine wrote to us.
The artist has now become proactive when sharing her art images. Corrine wrote that when she started her blog 6 years ago, “ like any fairly new artist I wanted to promote my work. I made the mistake early on of putting out higher resolution pics.” Later, she posted only lower resolution photos of her work and eventually began using– ” a variety of means to try to protect my photographs and images of my paintings: using right-click features on my blog, reducing the size of the image, sometimes putting on a small watermark of my full name or an initial stamp with CB on the online version of the images.” For the most part she was able to keep track of the use of her images. She sent out cease and desist notices when needed. “I kept regular track of my work, but regular searches didn’t expose the current crop of images.” Only by using the reverse image search tool did Corrine make her discoveries. She has since deleted her Flickr account, removed many images from her Facebook page and her Picasa album, and put the bulk of her blog entries into draft mode. ”I have taken screenshots of infringing sites and made HUGE changes on my site. I’m vigilant about filing DMCA reports and have asked Google to remove some of my images, plus I’ve added a no pin (Pinterest) meta tag to my blog.”
When Corrine Bayrak contacted Artist Marketing Resources, we shared copyright resources with the artist. As we were discussing options, the artist discovered another of her artwork reproduced on a second music album cover produced by Prospect Records–
My journey into copyright infringement is getting weirder– a wiki site mistakenly listed one of my spin paintings as being done by Damien Hirst and then I find a news article about a man arrested trying to sell fake Hirst paintings to Sotheby’s.
ps. I think my daughter has the spin art painting depicted in the news article hanging in her garage LOL.

Red Bull, in cooperation with the Seattle Department of Parks & Recreation is looking for an artist to work in collaboration with a world‐class team of experts to design public artwork that is skateable. This is not a skate park – it is first and foremost a work of art. But this is art that invites interaction and participation.
Red Bull is investing in the Seattle community by creating a truly unique public art experience that explores the creative nexus of public space, athletic skill and individual imagination. Red Bull and the Seattle Department of Parks & Recreation have selected a site for the Red Bull SkateSpace in Myrtle Edwards Park, just north of the Olympic Sculpture Park on an elevated knoll with spectacular views to Elliott Bay and the Olympic mountain range. Red Bull SkateSpace will blend art and skateboarding to create unique terrain where the innovation of skateboarders can truly flourish.
Eligibility: Open to professional artists living in WA, OR and BC

This picture belongs to everyone, so it brings people and ideas together. Countune is an “International Internet Social Art Project” and a registered Trademark. It is a new concept for exhibiting pictoral art. Its significance is rooted in an on-going graphic representation of the sequence of natural numbers.”
