Curated by Lindsay Howard

DUMP.FM is an image-based chat room for real-time communication. Founded in November 2009 by Ryder Ripps in collaboration with Scott Ostler and Tim Baker, DUMP.FM serves as a platform for artists who use its technology to foster community and creativity. IRL brings together DUMP.FM users from all over the world (many of whom will be meeting “In Real Life” for the first time) to offer an alternative to the traditional 1:1 experience by translating the liveness of DUMP.FM into a visual confectionery through collaborative participation in the physical realm. Look for caves animated by psychedelic GIFs, web-based performances with interactive webcams, architectural renderings of virtual property, and audio-visual recompositions that return images to the social networks and digital systems from which they emerge.

Participating artists include: Francoise GammaJeanette HayesFelix LeeTom MoodyStefan Moore,Scott OstlerArran RidleyRyder RippsErik StinsonDuncan AlexanderMichael Francis, Agathe de TrémontelsSterling CrispinJustin StrawhandTim BakerJoel CookLucy ChinenJude MCAndrej UjhazyDylan FisherJamie Rockaway and Matt Torti, and Chris Shier.

    The Ten Best Exhibitions of 2010: “The new art we’ve been waiting to see for the last 30 years.” - Art Fag City on L Magazine

    DUMP.FM: PLATFORM: “If you watch it long enough you’ll also see that there’s almost a language and an etiquette developing among the harder-core users, like emoticons but with pictures. Think about that. Deep.” – Robert Foster

    The Year of the Animated GIF: “Given dump.fm’s unique software, the question of how these images move off the site is particularly relevant. Who knows how a gallery would handle the images but I expect that question will be answered shortly. October 22nd, 319 Scholes will exhibit DUMP.FM, a show put together by curator Lindsay Howard. Consider me there.” - Art Fag City
