NET:REALITY

Blurring the boundaries between the tangible gallery
and the transitory Internet, Net:Reality merges the
ethereal notions of cyber space with the aesthetics of
a physical exhibition. Seven leading UK artists
engaged in Internet and New Media practice have been
commissioned to create artworks that simultaneously
exist virtually and physically.
Rather than having a 'theme' for the artworks, the
common denominator is the media itself and the
unifying connections between the web (Net) and the
physical (Reality) elements of the compositions. The
artists in Net:Reality have each interpreted and
implemented the amorphous relationships between these
distinct spaces to create an exhibition of artworks
diverse in concepts and aesthetics - harnessing the
Internet and the gallery environment to investigate
subjects ranging from emerging technologies to social
science.
