thinking 2005

I'm writing a session Proposal for the category of Contemporary Issues for the 2005 CAA (College Art Association) conference. This category is concerned with contemporary art and theory, criticism, and visual culture. The deadline is Sept 12 2003 -- that's thinking ahead.

The blob: A 40-year-old global pulsating sculpture of networked art
Proposed session in three segments.
- Networked art history and theoretical issues (Craig)
- Recent research on the effects of the Internet on the Mail Art Network (me)
- Mailed art envelope opening (audience participation)
This session will provide views of the digital networks as seen through the experiences of generations of pre-Internet networking artists and will connect audience members directly to the current practices of globally interconnected artists.
