Floating Points 1: Net Art Now

February 2004

Supported by Emerson College

The first speaker series — created and presented by Turbulence and Emerson College, Boston — examined some of the current critical areas being explored by net-based artists: interactivity, visualization, Internet protocol, software art, generative art, mapping, and games. The series considered contemporary theoretical and conceptual issues in net art, challenging notions of the art object, the artist and the audience. Presenters were Steve Dietz, Christiane Paul, John Klima, Alex Galloway, Mary Flanagan, Natalie Bookchin, and Cathy Davies.
