Damian Stewart is an artist working with light, sound, and technology, originally from New Zealand and currently based in Vienna, Austria. Through the construction of specific corporeal and psycho-corporeal experiences his work explores the relationships between audience, artwork and artist, and is based on a solid understanding of the history, material properties, and aesthetic possibilities of the systems with which he works. Recent work includes installations, light performances, and environment sonification pieces.

Damian has a diverse background that includes study in electroacoustic music, interior architecture, and computer science; professional software programming work on interactive museum installations and PlayStation2 games; and various music performances including free-jazz orchestras, solo electroacoustic improvised performances, and an electronica/dub band. He is a member of the New Interfaces for Performance (N.I.P.) collective, has performed internationally alongside artists including Biosphere and Deadbeat, and collaborated on projects in the UK, Netherlands, Austria, Germany, France, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, and New Zealand.

The Artvertiser

The Artvertiser is an urban, hand-held 'Improved Reality' project that re-purposes street advertisements as the surface for exhibiting art. Instrument of conversion and reclamation, The Artvertiser situates the 'read-only', proprietary imagery of our public spaces as a 'read-write' platform for the presentation of non-proprietary and critically engaging content.

Artist Titel: 
The Men In Grey Organisation
Artist: 

Men In Grey emerge as a manifestation of Network Anxiety, a fearful apparition in a time of government wiretaps, Facebook spies, Google caches, Internet filters and mandatory ISP logging.

Operating at the intersection of hacking and invasive situationist action, any open wireless network becomes their stage for a reverse-engineering of network dependence and the implicit trust we place in the metal and minds that make itall work.

In the grey suit of an unidentifiable bureaucrat, carrying briefcases filled with hardware and software, the Men In Grey dissect and manipulate wireless network traffic then reflect it back to the public with unsettling results.

Institution/Kurator: 
Subtitel: 
Men in Grey

A public wireless access point would be set up in the area of a media façade so that people can browse, chat and surf on their smartphones, laptops and netbooks. Men in Grey carrying briefcases with integrated laptops and a monitor on the side would suddenly arrive and take control of the network. Acting as network/media routers any traffic using that access point will be passed to the media facade while also appearing on their briefcases.
