CYDUCO is an exploration into cyberspace technology and its representation as cultural symbolisms expressed through visual arts design. Representing a world of abstract visual design, CYDUCO destabilizes our sense of the real world and fluidly speaks to us from the otherwise arduous communication gap between technology architecture geeks and diffused novice consumers.
Habitualization devours works, clothes, one’s wife, and the fear of war … Art exists that one may recover the sensation of life; it exists to make one feel things, to make the stone stony. The purpose of art is to impart the sensation of things as they are perceived and not as they are known. The technique of art is to make objects “unfamiliar,” to make forms difficult, to increase the difficulty and length of perception because the process of perception is an aesthetic end in itself and must be prolonged. Art is a way of experiencing the artfulness of an object; the object is not important.
~ Viktor Shklovsky
CYDUCO is the coined conjugational term for symbolism of cyberspace lore as expressed by a given artist (the movement’s originator J Aaron Anderson) through means of visual design of the iconic abstraction style commonly categorized as Art Deco.
In homage to the Art Deco movement originating in France just before World War I and later flourishing internationally in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, CYDUCO is an homage of this original energy contemporaneously set. CYDUCO iconizes major milestone advances (such as 1972 Wozniak’s Breakout pixelated programming, TimBL’s 1980s IS design, the 90s dot com Bubble, and its 2000 BUST) of today’s technologies through the expressed abstracted style.
CYDUCO is dedicated to artistically capturing the era’s cultural identifications of advancements in computer science and multimedia . CYDUCO purposefully ignores any futurism influence as the series’ active interpretation is to document real world technological revolutions through iconic art deco style of expression.
