The current exhibition at the new media art institution plug.in in Basel, Switzerland, presents the online project Beam me up. Beam me up is an online project that invites artists and authors from different countries to concern themselves with the concept of space in the form of art contributions and essays. Interpretations of the concept of space are here based on both pictures and texts, on artistic and philosophical models as well as on scientific experience. The project brings together works by artists such as Alec Finlay, Samuel Herzog, Esther Hunziker, Knowbotic Research, Marc Lee, Studer / van den Berg, and many others.
The online project Beam me up has been conceived by Reinhard Storz, Xcult.org. The architectural design of the exhibition has been developed by Morger + Dettli. More information about the project is available at www.iplugin.org and www.beam-me.net.
