Category: Hack Value: Comments and Research
This is where you will find my research on Hack Value. It will be re-edited regularly as I add new ideas and information on the subject. It proposes that in art practice hacking is now a common activity. It allows the practitioner to free up their conceptual, artistic and social perceptions. It argues that hacking is an aesthetic process, it is an art form, and it should be as accepted as contemporary art. It sees a Hack Value as a service to unhinge what is sealed and contained, to loosen the reigns of what deadens our courage to explore beyond the interfaces, facades and structures that define our imagination, not on our terms.
