SF Camerawork's online exhibition, "net.narrative" has launched at:


The show highlights eight projects by Mark Amerika, Natalie Bookchin,
Code Zebra/Sara Diamond, Jennifer & Kevin McCoy, Golan Levin, Jason
Lewis, the Radical Software Group, and Warren Sack.

In an effort to move critical discourse on net-based narratives
beyond traditional hypertext-oriented discussions of linearity,
navigation, and performative authorship, the show is thematized to
consider the site-specificity of the Internet, while also
reconsidering what it is that constitutes a "narrative."

As database aesthetics pervade contemporary art, patterns of user
behavior, the protocol of data presentation and retrieval, and the
self-reflexive visualization of data have all emerged as narrative
sources in their own right. The work in "net.narrative" exemplifies
these emergences.
