Digital art and culture: interference and curation

The Museum of Everything Anywhere is the designation given by Pedro Alves da Veiga to the real urban increased space, where there is a growing density of artistic interventions of digital and locative art, accompanied by layers of digital data and audiovisual information associated with hashtags, users, places and events, original or remixed, many of them anchored to physical places. Starting from the presentation of the digital media art ecosystem, with a focus on the Portuguese case, the work focuses on the evolution of digital art production – in its broadest sense – recognizing that the current massive production of steated content, including records of artistic, social, cultural or playful experiences is the living testimony of a global aesthetic, which permeates everything from everyday life, including fashion, food and the pandemic of COVID-19, to areas of knowledge such as science or philosophy.

This book proposes a methodology for the production of interventional and functional digital media art – the a/r/cography – and culminates with the call for deliberate and conscious – rather than accidental or random – curatorship of these layers of digital urban art, bringing them into the light, with them and over them producing knowledge.
