Andres Manniste has consistently factored the computer-networked environment into his art. His animated GIFs are often integrated into a full-page experience, which includes multimedia and interactive components. The challenge of making a complex image from simple files is a lot like studio painting to Manniste, except that he uses code.
Manniste has participated in on-line events such as SPAMM_POWER (2017), Webbiennial #07 and #10 (2007, 2010), Urban Jealousy the 1st International Roaming Biennial of Tehran (2009) and Drunken Boat #8 (2006). His work is featured in collections in the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art, Rhizome Artbase and the Canada Council.
