You are invited to view paintings and interact with a website which features local artworks.

The internet claims to offer open and networked information, yet some popular website applications organize requested information in ways that do not allow the user to see their content in relation to the whole picture. For example, on facebook, your friends can’t search for what events you are going to. Why aren’t these web applications facilitating collaboration and communication in real space? Alien Objects responds to this regular phenomenon by inviting and facilitating collaboration.

Franny Mendes Levitin is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art and Design. Through her work, she creates dialogue between the digital and the physical, between the fictional and the factual, and between the subject and the object.
