09.01.2011 COLLECT THE WWWORLD CATALOGUE by Domenico Quaranta, Milan
The last decade has seen an incredible growth in the production and distribution of images and other cultural artefacts. The internet is the place where all these cultural products are stored, classified, voted, collected and trashed. What is the impact of this process on art making and on the artist? Which kind of dialogue is going on between amateur practices and codified languages? How does art respond to the society of information?
This is a book about endless archives, image collections, bees plundering from flower to flower and hunters crawling through the online wilderness.
Writers: Domenico Quaranta, Gene McHugh, Joanne McNeil, Josephine Bosma

12.2010-Ongoing R-U-In?S CATALOGUE #002: UNBOXING AT R-U-InS.ORG
R-U-In?S Catalogue #002: Unboxing takes form as the url r-u-ins.org. At this url are links to each individual account as it specializes and networks with others. It is at this point of emergence that the clock begins to tick—how long can the new organism survive before it becomes brand fatigued, bootlegged, versioned, ripped off, or before it simply runs out of the raw material of production? How long can each user last before they take themselves out of the exchange routes again?
Since the first R-U-In?S Catalogue, which showed the product of 2009's exchanges, many things have mutated in the R-U-In?S network. Instead of marking the new changes with another publication, the catalogue now becomes the product website, available for real-time shopping of each mutation as it tries to exist in the instantly viral and blatantly aggregational ecosystems of social networks.
In addition to user accounts are the new aggregational architectures that have now begun to contextualize the project (galleries, magazines, blogs and other publications).

The first R-U-In?S catalogue reveals the products created by the R-U-In?S network in 2009. By aggregating and repurposing existing product imagery, content was re-branded or bootlegged into new memes and architectures with critical intent.
Each account represents a brand or a set of brands (lifestyle) and only when the imagery is aggregated together does the new product begin to take form. The first catalogue was a way of reconciling the activity between each participant's content set to expose the ideas and materials that were exchanged back and forth.
