United Art Space
United Art Space is a new non-localized art space, acting from Internet. It offers not only to broadcast artist works on Web,
on cdRom, but also to product with them some works as specificity of this virtual space are. U.A.S. wishes to take in
consideration technical and technological data, and multiple exchanges situations, as well as the multimedia games universe, in
order to be a data base for the artists whose thought concerns media, information spreading and Net system.
The founders of U.A.S., Jean-Marc Avrilla and Valery Grancher, wish to develop this reflection through productions and
publishing of works. This thought try to show that it is not only necessary to present the works of the artists, but also that
personalities from different horizons must be brought to collaborate together. This collaboration fits with the principle of
working on Internet, in the essence.
This project is only possible in elaborating, with artists, multimedia designers - in a large meaning - and programmers, a
platform for reflection and production. The specificity of U.A.S. pages is its double identity : place of research and space of
broadcast. So U.A.S. defines three objectives : first, the production of specific works, allowing to bring together the world of
contemporary art to the world of multimedia ; Second, in the broadcast of these works, in participating of art fairs or events,
permitting to open to a largest public ; Third, a management service of art works, from their production to their preservation,
for public or private collections.
But U.A.S is also a place for debate : « on line » seminars will be regularly proposed with themes connected to the program
and the fundamental reflection on the medium. A magazine will propose interviews with artists, theoretical articles or fictions.
Finally, the site pages of the artists shown will be accessible from U.A.S. by a link, presented in U.A.S. pages by a temporary
providing, in order to study or interrogate works, datas proposed for each other.
