I’m pleased to announce that one of the first American television documentaries about Net art is now online. Watch the RealVideo stream at: http://journalism.berkeley.edu/netart
"Net Art" is a short news documentary that presents the emerging medium of Internet art to the general public.
The story shows a diverse array of artworks – from interactive drawing programs to political pranksterism – and illustrates some of the unique qualities of the medium.
The story also covers the 2000 Berkeley Net Art Symposium, showing how it’s still difficult for scholars, curators, and artists to make sense of "Net art."
Interviews include: Steve Dietz (curator, Walker Art Center), Lynn Hershman (artist), David Ross (director, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art), Ken Goldberg (artist and professor), Alex Galloway (editor, Rhizome.org), RTMark (artist).
Featured artists and artworks: Art Entertainment Network, Natalie Bookchin, Jodi.org, Ken Goldberg, Lynn Hershman, Mark Napier, RTMark, The Remedi Project, Starry Night, Superbad.
