An Analog Artist working in a Digital World
Nicole Boitos wird in diesem Workshop über ihre Arbeit als Freelance Künstlerin sprechen. Es geht dabei insbesondere um die Vernetzung mit internationalen KundInnen und KuratorInnen. Obwohl Nicole in ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit analoge Methoden anwendet, sind Webtechnologien für die Präsentation und Vermarktung derselben Arbeiten unabdingbar geworden. Das gesamte soziale Netzwerken, Bewerben und Ausstellen ihrer Arbeiten sowie die Kommunikation mit internationalen PartnerInnen und KundInnen erledigt sie ausschließlich über online Netzwerke.
Nicole will talk extensively about her career as a freelance artist creating work for clients across the globe – how digital and web technology has become vital to an artist who works primarily using direct analog methods. This includes networking, promotion, and exhibition of work as well as connecting with and working with international clients via various internet technologies.
