Why work with blogs after our initial visual dialogs?
The blog is a relatively new way to reflect everyday life quickly and fluently, where pictures, words and videos can all be used for our dialogues. The fact that the artists themselves maintain
their own blogs will allow the process to grow without the surveillance of the initiator Silvina Der-Meguerditchian, and will allow communications, content, form and strategies take their own rhythm.
Using the blog format as an artistic tool enables us to experience the medium with another intention: we experiment with and push the boundaries of a new tool that could bring us to new visual
results. Or perhaps it will only be part of a process with a visual artistic result: an artwork. In this open form we can also invite cultural practitioners from outside, such as as curators,
thinkers or other artists, to take part or to reflect on our dialogues. Also, this is financially affordable and integrated into the every day life of the artists. The medium, its possibilities and
its boundaries can be a matter of discussion between the artists too.
Founded in 2004 by Silvina Der-Meguerditchian, Underconstruction was a communication platform for artists interested in issues of identity, transglobalization and the construction of both personal and groupconsciousness. Underconstruction is also interested in issues of concern to worldwide diasporas, including but not limited to the Armenian diaspora.
