Defining Net Art, a Thread on a Response

Defining Net Art, a Thread on a Response 

An interesting thread has been popping up on my email these days. I guess there is a sort of ongoing conversation about the defining of Net Art. It's based around the application process for Net Prix. Which last year attempted to ask for that very definition. I have been carefully listening for my opportunity to chime in.

The thread on adds valuable a perspectrive about the limitations of previous Net Art definitions. Leading to the interpretation of a need for Net Art to have a greater resemblance to Art in general. The Art and Artist must take into a account the viewer's responses, reactions and interactions. "I agree with this. Art and Artist's should utilize responses, reactions and interactions of the viewers as a basis for conceiving and creating Net Art". This is where I define Net Art, Alter Art(alter-ism), Conceptual Art and Particularly Dada Style Performance Art which when executed online as Net Art can hope to fulfill these issues.

Immersion Journalism and Social Networks have provided a natural progression in Net Performance Art(Alter Art) .

  1. I have heard about conceptual art, modern art and many other arts through the website of Indian Art Ideas but have never heard about net art. Nice blog to mention about this unique artwork.
