More Accessible Net Art?

By Rhizome

Up through 2002, the "Picasso ebook" was first created to celebrate Picasso's 120th birthday in 2001. The artist/curator of the Web project, London's Gandha Key, has two goals with this piece: 1. to create a "more accessible" species of net art, perhaps by referencing one of history's most reknowned artists, and 2. to have site visitors examine, by both perusing and contributing to its contents, how and why many people have a hard time separating Picasso's questionable morality and his extraordinary creativity. The ebook presently contains over 100 serious and satirical images and text works sent in from around the world.
