Welcome to the September discussion, Through the Net: Net Art Then and
Now. Just this week on August 26th, news
organizations around the world were hailing the 25th Anniversary of Sir
Tim Berners-Lee conceptualized the centralized information hub of the
internet and its protocol markup language HTML. We will take the month of
September to not only reminisce about the grand plans that internet
art set out to accomplish, but also critically contemplate the historical
barrage of the commercial infiltration and how net artist have pushed back
by
using innovative methods for development and production. From the first
buzzing hum of the slow and unreliable digital dialup through to the
evolution of tools such as email,
listservs, web sites, databases, software, and hardware intersected with
conceptual art notions linking hybrid text, image, animation, graphics,
audio
and/or video. Later tactical media, data visualization, and gaming gave
way to the speed and ubiquity of wireless where net art drives social
movements involving politics, ecology,
food, and so much more.

We gather this month a selection of experienced artists and new innovators
to ponder the history the past twenty-five years and its tension with the
world of art. We plan to team our announced conversants with other
featured invited guests to be announced weekly.
