Systaime / Borras Michael

France

Michaël Borras A.K.A Systaime is a French Internet artist, the founder of the movement French Trash Touch (2005) and an important participant of net.art and the international alternative network of digital art. In 2011, Systaime founded the Super Art Modern Museum (SPAMM), an online museum with digital pieces from over 300 artists. He is one of the French initiators of “Facebook art”, using the account “?ooq????”, which has been regarded as a more abstract artistic response to social media. His work has been exhibited at the Internet Pavilion of the 54th Venice Biennale, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and at the UNTITLED Art Fair in Miami, USA.

Bitcoin Abundance

In “Bitcoin Abundance”, Systaime offers explosive mashups of Internet Aesthetics, where information, images and comments provide a frame of today’s Digital Pop culture. The artist remixes web images and uses an audiovisual spectacle to display the patterns that are dominating the Internet, its icons, its manifestations and its digital prosperity. We are the "lucky" spectators of what he chooses to present us. What happens in the video has not much to do with our own lives, but it is more a kind of close esoteric manifestation of this web culture that is part of today’s pop culture.
