Okay, how and why did that little hand pointing with its index finger and floating freely about on your computer screen come to be...a cursor? Is Microsoft responsible for its ubiquity? If not, who is? The playful, just-launched Net art exhibition "Hello Cursor" doesn't really provide any answers, but it does offer engaging, creative musings on that unavoidable interactive symbol, the disembodied white hand. Curated by Kyeong Il Park, "Hello Cursor" features contributions by a international list of Net art stars, ranging from Jodi (the Netherlands) to Entropy8Zuper (Belgium/USA), as well as work by up-and-comers such as Korea's 000per and Brazil's tipo.
