The Interaction of Coloreds Color Check System

The Interaction of Coloreds Color Check System


http://www.blacknetart.com

  • Are you looking for love in a chat room? When someone describes himself as "tall dark and handsome," would you like to be able to tell exactly how "dark" he is?
  • Are you an art collector investing in netart made by a colored artist? Do you need a method of determining the effect of the artist�s body on the value of the work?

These and other tricky questions can be solved by applying the Color Check System devised by net artists Keith+Mendi Obadike, in an art project called The Interaction of Coloreds which can be reached through the home page of their website. Only too reminiscent of the good old South African "pencil test", this sharp art project was recently the featured Whitney Museum net art project of the month.
