Michael Mandiberg (2015)

Michael Mandiberg is an artist, programmer, designer and educator. Mandiberg describes himself as "an appropriationist at heart. I derive visual inspiration from the Internet, conceptual art, design, the end of print and the dying American empire. My work is both formal and poetic. I use words and symbols as tools to provoke reflection on our society and its effluvia." His works have been exhibited at venues including the New Museum for Contemporary Art located in New York City, transmediale Festival in Berlin, Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe in Karlsruhe, Germany, and Ars Electronica Center located in Linz, Austria. His work has also been featured in books like Tribe and Jana’s New Media Art, Greene’s Internet Art, and Blais and Ippolito’s At the Edge of Art. Mandiberg has been written about by The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, the Berliner Zeitung, and Wired.

About the Michael Mandiberg Interview

I am an interdisciplinary artist and programmer who works on and off the internet. I sold all my possessions online at http://Mandiberg.com/shop, made perfect copies of copies at http://aftersherrielevine.com/ and created browsers plugins that highlight environmental issues at http://therealcosts.com/. You can find out more at http://Mandiberg.com.

In 2009 I started a project to turn all of Wikipedia into books. The code parses the entirety of the database, turns it into print ready PDFs and uploads it to Lulu.com for print on demand. We just started uploading the upload, which you can follow here: https://twitter.com/PrintWikipedia.

Ask me anything: technical or poetic!
