Description

dot-store utilizes the e-shop as a context within which a series of artworks can be delivered both on and offline. From 2002—2004, dot-store produced and sold a range of low-cost vintage products that referenced both the history of the world wide web as well as the explosion of mobile communications in the 1990's.

dot-store is the work of artists, Jon Thomson & Alison Craighead, and is an attempt to utilise an e-shop environment as a context within which a series of artworks can be delivered both on and offline. From Autumn 2002 until Autumn 2004, dot-store produced and sold a range of low cost vintage products that referenced both the history of the world wide web and the popular explosion of mobile communications in the 1990's.
dot-store is particularly interested in drawing attention to the blurring of public & private spaces online, and the increasing overlap between personal testimony & corporate interest. dot-store, as with other work by Thomson & Craighead, makes reference to how technology changes the way we perceive the world around us.
