Hello all, first post here and I'm hoping someone might be able to help!
Anyone know much about this genre/scene (net.art)? Looking for stuff that is exclusive to viewing on a computer/network and that may or may not subvert the widely accepted notions of 'proper' site design (rules of interface and intuitiveness etc (ie. may indeed subscribe to neither)).
Also does anyone know any good examples of good net.art/net.artists and are there notable movements within net.art (ie. 'hacker art' is one) that I should be looking at?
What? The internet? be more specific please. Afterall ASCII art was defined by the era of computers back then, even though there is a movement of this kind of stuff. The internet as a delivery medium means little or nothing, as so many things can be posted there's hardly any 'medium' specific to it left.
I guess my question is, what are you looking for? Is it web-site design specific or not?

Not really... The Internet can indeed be used as a medium to deliver most kinds of art (painting, music, photography, etc, etc), but I am looking for stuff that is network specific. ie. http://www.titler.com/ - this couldn't exist via any other medium. Thus it is 'net.art', distinct from 'art on the net'. I am looking into it as part of a research project, but I don't know too much about the movement, and it seems maybe more esoteric/underground than I anticipated.
