With patriotism high, now might be an interesting time to look at the net art work "American Views: Stories of the Landscape" by Russet Lederman. This non-linear piece (which mimics the writing style of cultural theorist Walter Benjamin) is a digital-age version of a landscape painting. Lederman presents different views of the U.S. as remembered by three people from the heartland, California, and a New York suburb. Images, audio, ephemera, and text make up the collage...which, after all, is a metaphor for the American experience.
