Artist of the Week: Kyle McDonald

Kyle McDonald has variously worked with human computer interactions, open source coding, the social impact of technology and various other themes that where digital technology and art overlap.  He wrote a long reflection on WIRED.com about having pissed off Apple, riled people up online and wound up under investigation by the United States Secret Service for an art project.  The heat went way up on all four burners when people debated whether or not the work was “art” or not independent of his intentions.  Kyle McDonald has a lot of interesting points about our culture and where it is influenced by technology.  It’s best to understand the work involved and his ideas if you read the whole article below:
