we raised a question about audience to curators of net art at the New York
Digital Salon conference this last week. It seemed strange (if perhaps
unsurprising) that the question was hardly considered by the illustrious
panel of gallery and museum curators. Furtherfield would definitely like
give this survey a go in some form.
Another question that we are very interested by is how net users who would
not normally consider themselves to be interested in art, would come across
these works. Would it change their ideas about what art could be and its
relevance to them?
ps. I intend to write in more detail about our trip to New York but in the
mean time... a massive appreciative and gushy hug to all the people who
read posts to this list and took the trouble to meet up with us. It was
