Currently on view at Haines Gallery in San Francisco: "Multiple Personalities," an exhibition of both net art and traditional forms of editioned works (prints, photographs, and other pieces that don't exist as singular, unique piece of art). The online work, by artists such as Michael Daines (whose work is pictured) and the duo known as MTAA, are simply displayed on a laptop placed at the reception desk. Given the works by big-name artists (Damien Hirst! Andy Warhol!) on the gallery's walls, however, the rather mundane experience of casually browsing the online pieces is transformed. The curator's argument is very clear -- net art is *indeed* the latest form of the artist's multiple.
