Art of Giosuč Marongiu 5.0
for the physical immortality of works of art has been the
long-cherished utopia of artists of all generations. It is clear
that this presumed immortality will only make sense until a
sentient being still lives in this universe known to us; or to
the less known ones ... It means that even if art survived
humanity, it would not matter much if man was missing;
indispensable reference subject through which Art finds its
function ... Having said that, since the advent of the
relativistic theory of Albert Einstein, matter and energy are in
fact considered interchangeable, so it will not be surprising to
define the Art of new millennium in the form of energy, perhaps
to be allocated and preserved for millennia to come in a USB
flash drive or CD ROM, or any other optical-computer support of
any kind; even in those that have not yet been invented.
But what are
these Artworks Immortals 5.0 by Giosuč Marongiu? The long path
of artistic research undertaken by Giosuč Marongiu on
Computer-Art, since the end of the 80s, led him to elaborate
forms, static in frames and in movement, with sounds, in
computerized animations, where the material was replaced by
energy. He replaced the ancient colors and brushes with Mouse
and Cips and the white canvas with a computer monitor, thus
delivering his works to physical immortality; as well as that
eternity of the gesture long claimed by the artists of today and
of the past. Let it be clear here we are not talking about
contents and / or stories proposed, more or less valid, that
have nothing to do with the language / medium with which they
are expressed: << to posterity the difficult sentence! >>.
Giosuč Marongiu tries to deliver his innermost thoughts and his
visions of the forms of art to the inhabitants of his time, so
that they can make use of them: frames to be printed and hung on
any support or projected or viewed on monitors or any visual and
sound reproduction apparatus. Or his last four-dimensional
animated video-holograms to show off in ethereal environments;
finally freed from the constraint of the two-dimensional
projection, all at the discretion of the owner, who have been
entrusted by the author of the file or files stored inside, for
his exclusive use, a USB flash drive signed by the author. The
wear and tear of time on the work of art finally defeated, able
to give back in every moment and in every period to come, a
vivid indelible representation of the thought and that
particular artistic moment of the author as if he had just given

Artists have been always pursueing the utopia of the search of Art
Immortality and they have been always looking for a good solution
through the use of different matters, those most resistant that the
technology has put at everybody disposal.
Artists set their hope on the immortality of their works through the
materials, but when the Spetialism asserted its authority, the
search in that way had been neglected and Artists addresed
themeselves to a conceptual and gestural poetics inside wich one can
find a supposed immortality of the Art; considering anyway an
insurmountable obstacle the problem of the material endurance of the
work during the eternity.
the first Manifesto of 1947 they declar "Art is eternal, but it can
not be immortal", that means that Art is destinated to be
deteriorated by the time.
Man, who has been always working hard for the conquest of the
progress, is now able to help the Art to carry out this utopia.
the Metarational Poetics, withis new support, Art becomes Immortal.
possibility of move oneself in the space/time is now a
factfor the "Metarationafile" Works which have changed that one that
had been the definition of the matter till today.
new metter, maden of bit,resides into the fillings of the conscept
bt also into those of the gesture done throught the mouse, asserting
its real existence. An inoxidizable existence to be kept in CD Rom
or in a Hard Disk or into or into whatever optic/informatic support
that can contain these immortal file, result of a severe mathematics
and that when it's needed go to known destnations and in the
sametime they cross the universe moving easily in a space/time.
is a new Art that holds: the Concept; the Gesture; the Matter; the
Moviment and the Sound, but it does not renounce a poetics of the
emotions that borns in the mind of the Artist and that can show
itself to everybody through a televisional imagine, an Ink Jett
Print, a Projection into the impalpable space or in every other
support that in the future should be invented by men to decode those
bits of this inoxidizable and immortalArt.
