ART MESH: Let’s play with art

ART MESH is an interactive project which encourages its viewers to have active involvement in the newest art. The project has a form of multi-media game whose main objective is to encourage its participants to active co-creation. Art Mesh uses the glitch effect, i.e. digital error in an image used to transform graphics and video.

The project participants literally transform a work of new art by their opinions but at the same time they expend context for their perception and understanding. The result of interactions between the image and participants’ opinions will be a collection of art-mems, available on a website The Interchange and during the project résumé When is a neighbour a stranger? Art Mesh is a follow-up of the interactive action: Let’s Do It Together (2011–2014).
