From an artistic point of view, the authors reflect upon what has taken place
on the internet in the last two decades, and express how they perceived,
experienced and lived through this era.
From a social, political and artistic point of view, the contributors tell us:
- how the network changed their relationship to the world, time and space,
- how it transformed their uses, practices and ways of thinking
- how it became a space for sharing, exchanging and creating.
In a prospective approach, they are forecasting the coming years, wondering
if the internet can stay a territory worth exploring in the future and if it will
still be a fertile ground to produce hybrid art forms in which the physical and
virtual worlds merge, rub off on each other and collide.
The contributors also present a selection of websites they regard as significant,
iconic and essential.
Internet has become a space of creation and exhibition and this publication is
an invitation to discover major art pieces, accessible for free on the web.
