Class exhibition of net art.
Net Art Studio examines the current state of artistic practice on the Internet and facilitates the production of new works for networked audiences. The course consists of concurrent research and studio components, joined by critical theory.
The research component, achieved by prepared lectures, readings, and directed group research, surveys the cultural and technological underpinnings of contemporary net art. Key areas include historical discourse (media studies, pre-history of the computer, counter-culture movements), significant works online (independent, collective, curated), and practical technical structure (hardware, software, networks).
The studio component focuses on the creation of prototypes that lead up to a final project that exists on the internet and can be submitted to online ‘galleries’ and new media festivals. Student projects are discussed in group critiques within the context of individual artistic development and contemporary net.art. The studio component will be supplemented as necessary by remedial demonstrations, problem-solving assignments, and individual critique.
