net.art, networked art, art on the net, web art-its all about networks

October 31, 2007

today’s node in the intro course is net.art. for me this in one of the most exciting and conceptually challenging areas of the electronic arts. perhaps the most influential critical author on networked art and cultures so far has been geert lovink. his book dark fiber is like a guidebook for many net artists. i also think that  paul’s treatment of net.art in our course text is quite excellent. another good source is rachel greene’s “a short history of internet art” as well as mark amerika’s “how to be an internet artist.”  s0, perhaps s0me0ne in the intr0 c0urse is g0ing to build their final pr0ject on the net? check out the net.art links for more info and resources. if you’re conceptually skilled you can find a way to make a work of net.art without buying hosting and working in dreamweaver. if you need hosting and a domain (crucial!) try bluehost or broadpsire. check out one of my favorite works of net.art here and here.
