Hello, I am (c) merry and I am Internet artist.
I was invited to participate on Chloë Flores curatorial project called "Chloë Flores Facebook Page" as artist in residence for this August. The residency is taking place of course on facebook, on user profile of Los Angeles based curator Chloë Flores. Every month, new artist is using the space provided by her profile in different manner.
Because of my deep interest in facebook-based net art and background in cinema studies, I've decided to use this opportunity to create temporal metrical sculpture. That is, probably the very first sculpture on facebook - made on facebook out of facebook, following its structure and discourse. And of course, perceivable only on facebook.

The major inspiration for this were the metrical films that Austrian filmmaker Peter Kubelka did in late fifties, and works by structural filmmakers from 60s and 70s. The influence of Ornament sound experiments by Oscar Fischinger is I think also clearly visible.
You can find more information about the Facebook sculpture on the project webpage I've build with google sites (googling facebook -- sculpture - googlesites should be enough to safely find it).
The sculpture will be performed between August the 1st and August 31st, 2013 on facebook.com/itsallbeendonebefore.

Thank you for your interest, and for being on-line.
I sincerely hope you will enjoy my Facebook sculpture.
