Scott Snibbe was one of the first artists to move into the burgeoning field of applications for phones and tablets around 2005. His piece for NEAT, REWORK_, (with the key collaborator being Lukas Girling), allows the viewer to interact with remixes of Philip Glass’ music using iPad responsive abstract animation to both visualize music and to create original musical compositions in Glass’ early style. The goal for many artists in the field has been to have a democratic relationship between makers and those engaged, where information is shared and responses become equal parts of the work, and monetary exchange is minimized or eliminated; Snibbe’s work reflects those values.
