We all are aware of a Web site's name as it pops up in our browser. But how many of us know the secret identity of any given Web site -- the numerical IP address? Bay Area artist, curator, and scholar Lisa Jevbratt and her fellow members of the collective C5 are creating a database of IP addresses that serves as a non-narrative work of net art (entitled "1:1") that reminds viewers of the intricate, unseen design of the Web. At last count, two percent of the spectrum has been searched and 186,100 sites have been included.
