DISCUSSION

Net 2.0 and new stuff


We agree? In what way?

Net 2.0 and new stuff


Talking about the same thing would be nice...

To be honest, I'm not sure I totally understanding the distinction that is being made between Net Art 1.0 & 2.0 (incidentally, I think using version numbers is a terrible way to make the distinction--it doesn't really communicate anything except a suggestion that Net Art 2.0 is in some way an improvement over Net Art 1.0).

From what I'm gathering, the distinction is really between Internet/Computer-interested art versus Internet/Computer-activated art. It's kinda like people arguing over whether a house painter is someone who paints pictures of houses or paints the houses themselves.

Net 2.0 and new stuff


Well, I'm cool with dropping the discussion if you want, but I'm actually interested... I'm not just being argumentative :) I'm always curious about boundary conditions was wonderingwhere you see Net Art starting and ending (e.g., does a scan of a photograph of a painting that someone puts on their blog count as "net art"?).

Anyway, if you'd really rather drop it, drop it I will.

So either C++ or Esperanto?

Are you talking about a medium or a topic? Computer culture is not a medium... and using digital rendering isn't a culture, it's a method.
