Net Art

Filed under: Web Art I — Mia @ 4:03 am

I believe Net Art is personal artistic expression that incorporates the Internet. Whether the specific outcomes are accidental or intentional, they are DuChampian in that it’s art if the artist says it is. The broader definition of net art can include any aspect of Internet use. That may include browsers, social networks, chat, search engines, data, robotic control, interactivity, telepresence, image retrieval, image manipulation, and tracking cookies. Below are three examples of Net Art.

MW2MW, Marek Walczak and Martin Wattenberg, created Noplace, a Net Art project that focused on notions of Paradise and Utopia. The artists mined public resources with Web software and solicited public participation in their 2008 project.

Scott Draves founded the collaborative abstract artwork, Electric Sheep. Sleeping computers communicate over the world to create collective dreamlike images.

Peter Luining creates audiovisual interactive artworks, some of which allow users to interact with other people who are online at the same time. Zumb 8*6 is an interactive flash movie with sound.
