tagged exhibition - net/art?


tagged exhibition - net/art?
i'm currently experimenting with del.icio.us - tags. the idea is to make an exhibition which can be seen in various layers thanks to tagging...
have a look: http://del.icio.us/carlos.katastrofsky
this project is a work in progress and started recently after a discussion about curating with marisa s. olson and luis silva here: http://vercodigofonte.blogspot.com/2005/11/on-blogging-as-curating.html and while reading the comments on rhizome about lev manovich's article "Remix and Remixability"...
by now it's just a concept/ sketch, but:
comments are always welcome!
regards,
carlos
