Rhz. Field Trip

posted at 16:36 GMT by M.River in /news/mriver

As “AFC” dubbed it, MTAA went to check out the “hot new media chicks talk about art with some dudes” lecture at EAI last night. What did I learn? MO pointed out after the talk that “sublime” comes with a trace of horror. For me, that about sums up Internet Art 2.0

No, I mean that in a good way.

Also, props to CP for the impromptu Jodi / Wikipedia mash. I think I got a photo of it.

Yeah, you had to be there.

Final note - the SNAD 2.0 is the same SNAD surrounded by a cartoon thought bubble

twhid adds:
All-in-all a great time was had by all.

My one quibble with the panel was that 3 of 4 were very similar in their approaches and inspiration (Wolfgang Staehle being the odd man out). My feeling was that it could have shown a bit more range in what net artists are doing right now.

Another disappointment was not meeting Paddy from AFC who I assume was there since she promised a review.

And one final dissapointment: after the panel Wolfgang joked with me asking why MTAA wasn’t on the panel since we’re always on these panels. I regret not coming back with, “I guess MTAA is just too net art 1.0.” ;-) permanent link to this post
