FMS or FragMental Storm "is a software which carries out WWW searches displaying the data disjointedly", in other words a visual internet browser.

Created by the collective exonemo, formed by Kensuke Sembo and Yae Akaiwa, the work is a pure abstraction of the network. Through movement, colour and form, the work shows the fickle nature of an everchanging space by itself continuously changing.

Former Prix Ars Electronica Honorary Mention's, this is just one of several pieces of note including rgb f__cker and TRACK:0 from the collective's site that is well worth a look.

Here is a press release for a diverse new media exhibition (make sure to scroll down to view the links to the participating artists):

Pabellon dd en el marco de observatori'03 desires the near dismaterialization of the exhibition of visual arts. in a clear homage to dadaism, that everyone knows does not mean anything, can be viewed by the symbols of "hard-drive" (in spanish, "discoduro"), "digitaldipsomania", "dismaterialized diffusion", "divergent diversion" and other abbreviation pairs beginning with "d".

the works dd photography, dd video-art, dd local (software.art and interactive residents on the premises), dd web.art, dd net.art, dd live (spectacles whose source will consist of whatever digital state), are put within the reach of people through an administrative database situated in a hard drive: because pabell?n dedé exhibits all that is storable in our hard drive (which is,by the way, very hard).

it exhibits works via invitation or later selection through an open call so as to reflect the artistic production of the latest art in a much better way.

it demonstrates the works that require the manipulation of the visitors, addressed to while standing up, without placing the citizen underneath or sat down, but rather in an equal state of two people standing up, one on one.

it emits all the slave works of a sequencer, fixed by a "clock-step". on each "clock-step", the exhibition disappears into darkness so as to return to, after a distancing from the exhibited works, the administration of the following set of works.

Wednesday the 5th of November in the Balcony Room, Shakespeare's Globe, 21 New Globe Walk, Bankside, London SE1 9DT, England, ResCen (Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts, Middlesex University) will be hosting a seminar on the theme of "Transformation and the Artist".

"For over two years the ResCen artists have been meeting in closed sessions to discuss the processes that form and inform their work. This seminar is the second in a series that focuses on themes drawn from their past discussions.

Transformation has been a recurrent theme and represents an aspect that can be seen in the artistic process, in the past and present works of the artists and in the individuals themselves.

Together the ResCen artists represent decades of knowledge, skills, craft and experience and Transformation plays a key role in the making of their work. In this seminar the artist-researchers will be joined by Adrian Rifkin. Adrian and those attending, will debate the issues arising from considerations of Transformation."

Entrance is free but its advisable to book a place in advance. To reserve a place contact ResCen.
