Photographic Representation of Imagery and its Observers with an eye on Web 2.0

MAK Columned Main Hall
A collaborative project of Markus Hanakam & Roswitha Schuller (visual artists, Vienna) and Karin Mihatsch (researcher, Paris).
Palaces & Courts by Markus Hanakam and Roswitha Schuller is an interactive, web-based, color-coded guidance system which links
two-dimensional images with lines of text and functions much like a text-based role playing game; the reader guides him or
herself, while also being guided.
The basic idea of our work is the imagination of photography on the Internet. Since the Internet is a virtual space,
photography cannot be discussed on the basis of its actual materiality. Our strategy is to evoke imaginary images that begin
their existence in the mind of the observer, say the artists of their conceptual project, which is based on the catalog
of the 1915 Worlds Fair. This interactive work can be entered online beginning on 9 November 2010 at www.palacesandcourts.com
