The internet has been a site for art since before the current pervasiveness of home and portable computing. In the 1990’s and early 2000’s artists produced Net Art, often by creating a web page in which a work or a group of works was sited. While these artists were indeed venturing into new territory, their works were and continue to be challenged by specific limitations: how does one present, maintain and drive traffic/viewers to a URL? Should the work become archived? Preserved on a disc or database do interactive elements become null and void? Through a combination of institutional exhibition and acquisition, as well as what could be called a short-sighted view of the ubiquity of the internet equating a universality of access, many early net art works vegetate, islands in a vast sea of websites – accessed via art world specific portals, rarely visited, stationary and un-linked to.
