Voila! C-Mon redoes Rhizome’s 50K Wall.

Look at me, ma! I’m a ‘net artist!

I’ve made some sorely needed improvements – aka, scrawled my name — across Rhizome’s 50,000 Dollar Web Page, a “collaborative” fundraiser for the New Museum‘s digital arm. Last month, the organization set up a permanent web page on their site where anyone can buy a space and a link (10 x 10 pixels go for $5) — and put up pretty much whatever they like. With your donations, I was able to roller tag the mutha — something far bigger and better than if I’d try to go at this alone.

Needless to say, I’m pretty darn grateful that there are folks out there who saw fit to help me finance this silliness. As promised, my “project” is neither socially nor politically redeeming. And as promised, everyone is thanked on the site. In the process, Rhizome, a non-profit, made a tidy $620 in donations. I’ve raised $447 of that total, surpassing my goal of $400 — and I didn’t even have to get all Sally Struthers. If you still want to contribute a couple of bucks to the cause, however, I’m not gonna say no. (You can do that here.)

In the meantime, thankyouthankthanyouthankyou to everyone who gave $$$ (in the middle of a recession, no less!). I love knowing that there are people out there who not only encourage ridiculosity, they sponsor it! You guys rock HARD.


Needed: $1. To do something ridiculous on Rhizome’s pixel wall.

With your money, I’m sure I could help Rhizome’s $50,000 webpage look infinitely better.

Rhizome, the online digital arts non-profit affiliated with the New Museum, is having a fundraiser/”art collaboration” that I am determined to collaborate with. The deal is that you can buy some pixels on the webpage (see above), which will then be presented at some benefit in May. Of course, it’s expensive. Which is why I’m seeking your help. If I try to buy a space on my own, it’s gonna have to be 10 square pixels. But, with your help, I could do something truly splendiferous — something about the size of a postage stamp. All I’m looking for is $1. If you want to give $2, I won’t say no. All I know is that if several hundred of us come together and use our powers for evil, instead of good, something mildly entertaining may come of it.
