chasealias institute: Chase Alias :: Re-examining Reality to Repurpose Identity as Art by DS Pollack


a Re-examination of Reality for the Creative(s) Use of Identity

DS Pollack, a Performance Artist, spends extended periods of time studying his characters. Often living in their homes and wearing their clothing. It has become a ritualistic part of his method acting technique. The Performance Art Itself comes in any form, whether it is one on one, online chat, live and/or recorded video or audio. Pollack adds to genres of Performance Art and Net Art the dimensions of the "social network" and the possibility that humans can be anyone they choose to be.

This topic of using multiple identities and alters has become a vital point in the cloud computing security lexicon. Causing many to question Pollack's motives, often calling his work 'identity-fraud' and a 'violation of corporate policy'. Yet, as it stands, the ability for an Artist to create a character, "IS" freedom of speech and if a 'Corporate Policies' are in truth violating people's first amendment rights. then this work has served a very valid purpose. The protection of Freedom of Expression, Speech and the Net Art.

Conceptual Art Video Claims It's All You Need to Know about Conceptual Art, Huh, by DS Pollack

All You Need to Know about Conceptual Art
Pretty Good Video

It's a good "Start", but not " All" one needs to know, that is if they wish to truly understand.

Worth the the watch, however.

Blog Art, Blogger Artist a Letter to Paddy Johnson by DS Pollack

Blog Art, Blogger Artist a Letter to Paddy Johnson by DS Pollack

If a Blog
is the Art
the Blogger
the Artist

Just like Seth Siegelaub was to Conceptual Art and Artists. And how we now realize his exhibition and influence make him one of the greatest conceptual artists of his time. Perhaps the Art bloggers and their blogs are in fact creating the most pertinent art of our time.

That's exactly the way I create my work and Art. I also believe that you, Paddy Johnson are, or at least have the ability to be, the Seth Siegelaub of our time. Take that as you will. However, to me Art is in everything we create. The digital critic holds immense power. Those bold enough to state, that what they create, "is Art" are the "now".

There is, and will forever be, a contradiction in any contemporary art movement. Particularly when it comes to New Media, Conceptual and Performance Art. Just realize, that mere existence of contrasting perspectives is exactly how we can tell where Art lives.

Inspection of Existence as Holden Vance III

Chase Alias questions the reality of identity, inspecting his own existence.  Alias understands himself to be a character manufactured as a "Vessel".  A machine that drives Ideas, intentionally littering the Art world’s site-maps. Drawn out, by the artist, for his canon, in advance.  

The Argument between Free Will and Determinism becomes truly complex.  The Goal of Alterism and this new form of Techno-Dada is altruistic in nature.  The Performance Artist (Alterist) Exists as the Art, as an example of the “Emergent System”.

Cyber and actual space/time creates so many barriers. The ability to create one's own existence as Art has become an Imperative. If society is to maintain stability of culture and freedom of speech.  
If you have something to say and fear persecution you could "Remain Anonymous" . However, It may be more effective to create your own "chasealias". It exemplifies creativity all while protecting your right to free speech. @TheorizeArt

Cultural Critic

**Look Very Carefully.  While this may seem like a simple snapshot.  I assure you, It's is has much greater depth.  In fact.  Take the time to watch the pixels very closely.  The process is based on an Algorithm  from the Automated Animator Project and it is One of my Favorite MHDR Finished Works of Art.  MHDR is Motion High Dynamic Range.  It combines aspects of HDR and Gif Animation with unique Algorithms.  The work shimmers and has depth unmatched by printable means. Perpetuating the question and Idea of Animate versus Inanimate.

Who I M, Interview with Charlie by Chase Alias is Classic Alter Art (alter-ism)


Published on Feb 26, 2014
It all began while working deep in character as Chase Alias on a series called What We Found on Craigslist...

Chase is an Immersionist character. Immersionism is a form of gonzo journalism made famous by Hunter S Thompson in his works such as "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Immersion Journalism or Immersionism is a style of journalism similar to gonzo journalism. In the style, journalists immerse themselves in a situation and with the people involved. The final product tends to focus on the experience, not the writer.

David S Pollack, Notable Figure in Immersion Journalism

Chase Alias, Cited External Links in Gonzo Journalism

Since all use of work has citation and proven credibility toward Journalistic Endeavors, no release is needed. The Imagery and stories are for artistic, journalistic and photo-journalistic use. Never for commercial purposes.

Throwing the Target at the Arrow


Found this on Rhizome

This is a good concept based on Marcel Duchamp's theories.

The application of the project needs come work.

That will come.

I Hope.

Who is Ai Weiwei? The focus of a new exhibit @hirshhorn and one of the most powerful artists in the world

Who is Ai Weiwei? The focus of a new exhibit @hirshhorn and one of the most powerful artists in the world


So what is it about Ai? What makes him, in Western eyes, the world’s “most powerful artist”? The answer lies in the West itself. Now obsessed with China, the West would surely invent Ai if he didn’t already exist. China may after all become the most powerful nation in the world. It must therefore have an artist of comparable consequence to hold up a mirror both to China’s failings and its potential. Ai (his name is pronounced eye way-way) is perfect for the part. Having spent his formative years as an artist in New York in the 1980s, when Warhol was a god and conceptual and performance art were dominant, he knows how to combine his life and art into a daring and politically charged performance that helps define how we see modern China. He’ll use any medium or genre—sculpture, ready-mades, photography, performance, architecture, tweets and blogs—to deliver his pungent message.

Why Not? : In Response to a Poetry Question Posed by ink-and-dust on tumbler by @beingholden

#QuestionAnything #ChangeEverything

Holden Vance III in response to

Poetry Question:

Posed by


Do you combine other artists work with poetry?

Why not?

If you believe in the word creativity then you must understand that it takes the same creative energy to create an object d'art or ready made.  The issue is in the contradiction of believing one can own a moment of creation, which is merely a memory.
