Rhizome to Commission Net Art

Okay, it may be "old news" that Rhizome.org supports media art -- but now Rhizome's just launched its first net art commissioning program. Artists are invited to submit proposals in one of two categories: interface artworks (fresh ways to access content and databases) and tactical response works (pieces that address political situations around the world, in particular the events of September 11, 2001). The deadline to apply for either of the $5,000 commissions is February 15, 2002.
