Launching a Cultural Revolution
"Piotr Szyhalski, an artist and instructor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, created the computer images as part of an "Electric Posters" series for viewing on the Internet. The image, called "Win," uses Szyhalski and his wife, Pamela Johnson as models. "There are two things that make the Internet environment particularly interesting to me," he said. "One, the direct connection between the artist and the audience... . Two, the ultimate negation of the material value traditionally attached to the concept of art... . My work communicates complex meanings while remaining nothing but an electric impulse."
