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.
