Katrin Wolf — Artist pointer

Exhibition in the Cloud — Summer 2012

Artist Pointer is critically questioning the role of the artist in a process of exhibiting through digital manufacturing and distribution capabilities.

The Artist Pointer has a digital DNA, no matter if it becomes physical in an exhibition through 3D milling and printing. Therefore the work can be downloaded and exhibited everywhere and by everybody with internet access and theoretically without the artist‘s involvement.

With the Artist Pointer project I am asking about the artist‘s visibility in digital manufactured work.

Traditional art pieces are usually signed and the signature then is standing for the artist. In graffiti, the signature itself becomes the art work. The Artist Pointer is a location sensitive replacement of the artist‘s signature as it will – where ever the exhibition is and I (the artist) am – always point at me.
