Art Blue was born in a virtual world in the year 2008 as an ALT of Minimal Blue. ALT stands for a second avatar, a copybot in an ALTernate Reality. Reading such lines in a bio you may wonder until you get to live in such a world by yourself. There are many layers to decipher and by doing so you will understand that the creator of Minimal Blue is Ervare, which is a shift cipher for Reiner. Reiner [Schneeberger] is the creator of Computer Minimal Art, an art form first time mentioned in 1985 by the art curator Dr. Gerhard Dotzler. That’s why I named my first identity in a virtual world “Minimal.” One of my first students joining the virtual world, “Daniel” took as his identity the name Art Eames. I liked the name so I created Art Blue. Years later I claimed the domain art.blue and that became my life.
About SPIRITUS EST / THE BREATH When I got invited to become an artist in the permanent installation in MdM I took a look back and that is the result. The installation is minimal, the installation is political, the installation is conceptual. That defines my art.
