The movement net-art and electronic media are another tool for artists today. Some more sophisticated than others, but somehow most artists experience or interacts with Internet today. One reason that motivates this collective is the daily necessity of wanting to know what is happening in the world right away. That is why people are using the Internet more than ever. It is more than read and get information but to create that information and data, text, images and videos.
