idea 366: The post-internet age

Japanese magazine Idea concentrates on visual communication in the post-internet age. 

I didn’t realize that we have already reached the post-internet age, but who am I to challenge Idea Magazine. The theoretical substantiation of this theses is a bit hard to deduct from it, since only parts of the written text is in English. Most is in pure Japanese. But anyway, it is the pictures that do it.

Idea is full of digitally produced illustrations that fill the internet and other digital communication tools. Some 30 pages are dedicated to visual artist Rafaël Rozendaal, of Dutch descent but now living in New York. His work covers websites, installations and animated gifs. Each work has an url of its own, like: tossingturning.com, sinkslow.com, flyingfryling.com. They find their way to the international art scene and Rozendaal’s website (www.newrafael.com) is visited by more than 30 million people per year.
