|FREE MANIFESTA: PROJECTS: THE DIGITAL POCKET GALLERY|
|THE DIGITAL POCKET GALLERY|
PIRUN, JESS LOSEBY, JEREMY TURNER
The digital pocket gallery effort began in March 2002.
The digital pocket gallery was inspired by the real-life Pocket Gallery at 536 gallery in Vancouver, Canada.
The 536 Digital Wallet Gallery in Helsinki, Finland, is a related effort which is also accepting submissions.
Pockets contain miniature biographies and testaments to our lives and forgotten stories. The crumpled train ticket speaks of journeys taken, the handful of confetti in your 'best' jacket of a wedding years before or the telephone number on the back of a matchbook given by a someone who's name and face is long forgotten. Files and folders are the 'digital pockets' of the internet artist. The hard-drive is an autobiography in coded form. Dreams, ideas and waste lie hidden in these cryptically labelled pockets that have become the maps and landscapes of our virtual lives.

All works that meet the submission guidelines (http://www.ikatun.com/digitalpocketgallery/submit.htm) are included in the Digital Pocket Gallery. Additionally, the four curators of the Digital Pocket Gallery select approximately four works per month to feature as "curator's picks". These works are particularly strong examples of net.art and have answered the call in an original or interesting way.
