About BrowserBased

Why BrowserBased?
The Internet is not only the central media for all communication for art, discourse, (re)presentation and research, most of all the Internet is and will be a progressively dominant influence on art itself.

What is BrowserBased?
BrowserBased is partly a material / technically oriented platform dealing with the browser based context as well as a net-culture knowledge base. BrowserBased is a gathering in Amsterdam with guest speakers, workshops, etc. BrowserBased is also a net-culture group blog on Facebook, found here:


Where is BrowserBased?
BrowserBased’s geo-marker is centered at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, but aims to offer a platform for net related art to Amsterdam, which sadly currently is non-existent. Concentrically it also reaches out to other academies and cities in the Netherlands. The Facebook group opens its arms to the world, which is the natural habitat.
BrowserBased does not believe in academic or geographical constraints. Any handshake is welcome.

  1. Dear Sir / Madam,

    I am trying to contact the creator of the https://goo.gl/photos/yprMHmUCJ5nGenUs9
    Pecunia Non Olet (2016) installation I saw two weeks ago in Paralelni Polis, Prague.

    I was there for a conference and this installation did provide a nice lavender scent while working in their chill lounge on my talk for the conference but was placed in a corner where I think it did not get the attention it deserved (although the effect was very noticable!)

    I think this is such a great idea and would like to recreate the installation (with text of the original artwork to give proper credit to browserbased) at the Bitcoin Embassy in Amsterdam. I will be able to get hardware donated from our members and think this would be an awesome way to promote the work of browserbased to the bitcoin community.

    Kind regards,

  2. difficult to gauge, but how big is the ‘return’ to early tech such as bulletin board systems, fax machines, ham radio, snail mail, IRC, dark net, Newsgroups, ftp etc (not unlike the current ascent of vinyl, cassette tapes, Super8, analogue photos etc)??

    I’m working on a RaspberryMUD but wonder about the level of participation as my online radio station BBS receives very little traffic but maybe obscurity works as sanctuary?
