A "Tayste" of Net Art

Today, TAYSTES.net debuts in the form of an installation at the Cornerstone Gallery in Manchester, England. The piece, by artist Jenny Marketou, is a multi-user, networked, open source tool designed to give the user unlimited access to the intimate world of networked communication infrastructures such as webcams, chat rooms, and flows of information via surveillance networks. The user can tweak data found from these sources. The piece was influenced by Marketou's earlier well-known work, "Smell.bytes" (TM).
