Andy Deck is an American artist known primarily for his Internet-related art. His work addresses the politics and aesthetics of collaboration, interactivity, software, and independent media. Using the site ARTCONTEXT.NET, Deck combines code, text, and images to demonstrate new patterns of participation and control that distinguish online presence and representation from previous artistic practices. His aesthetic program delves into the myth of technological progress, issues surrounding collective authorship, and the cultural context of political passivity. Visitors to Artcontext encounter online production processes that suggest both the potential and limits of systematized creativity. In addition to the anonymous collaboration fostered by his websites, Deck has worked with arts collectives such as Turbulence, Personal Cinema, and Furtherfield, which mounted a retrospective of his work in 2004. In 2000 Deck co-founded the environmental art organization Transnational Temps, which has produced a series of earth art projects for the new century. The award winning work of the collective has been featured in numerous venues including the traveling exhibition Eco Media. During the summer of 2010 Transnational Temps curated and organized a New York City exhibition entitled Spill»Forward, addressing environmental crisis and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Deck's work was featured in the ZKM's net.condition exhibition in 1999 and is represented in the Computer Fine Arts Collection. As part of London's 2006 Node.L cultural events series Deck exhibited work at the HTTP Gallery, the Science Museum, and through the Tate Online. In 2011, Deck's work received first prize for interactive art in the LÚMEN_EX Digital Art Awards. In 2009, Deck won second prize at the Biennial of Ibiza (Spain). His early game art piece Space Invaders Act 1732, awarded an Honorable Mention at Ars Electronica, is now on international tour with the Garden of Forking Paths exhibition. Recently his work was shown in London's Unleashed Devices exhibition, in New York's Parallel Paths exhibition, in Trondheim's New.Brave.World PikselSavers exhibition, and in the Web Biennial 2010 of the Istanbul Contemporary Art Museum. Deck's commission Screening Circle is featured on the online Artport of the Whitney Museum of American Art. Other recent exhibitions include Haifa, Israel; Stockholm, Sweden; Como, Italy; Castilla-La Mancha, Spain; Bodrum, Turkey; Dublin, Ireland; and New York City, U.S.A.
