Constant Dullaart

Rapid Response Fellow
2020 – 2020

The fluidity of boundaries between artist and tech communities and questions of authorship, virtuosity, and the performativity of art in a mediated environment is an important aspect of the work of Constant Dullaart’s practice, a practice that reflects on the broad cultural and social effects of communication and image processing technologies. His work includes websites, performances, routers, installations, startups, armies, and manipulated found images, frequently juxtaposing or consolidating technically dichotomized presentation realms.

Rapid Response Project

For Phase 1 of Rapid Response, Dullaart will explore new modes of social media and connection in a time of social distancing and isolation. The artist will reconfigure and rebuild social media formats to set up a series of venues for casual social interaction– bars, community spaces, institutions, meeting rooms, and more. These encounters would be able to occur in conditions reminiscent of “real life,” without the need to make an appointment or create accounts that reveal one’s identity and personal information to a large tech company.
