New Six Rules Compliant Net.Art From Eryk Salvaggio
I have always considered the sexual element of the world wide web to be either ignored or presented as though there is only professional porn on the internet. The phenomenon of "Cam Girls", for example, blurs this line between gross commercial exploitation and a kind of feminine empowerment. I came across the scene while involved with my own online diary; to me, there is little difference between exposing yourself online and writing with any kind of honesty; both are a kind of exhibitionism. While I immediately rejected the idea, later it came back as an obvious source of material for "net.art nudes." I hadn’t seen nudes created in this medium before, excepting the pornographic displays, which is interesting to me, since you see the nude figure represented in almost every other media and style since the dawn of mediums and styles. There is something about the representation of a nude body that really defines any given art form. The images were used with permission [she loves them, in fact] and, as always, feed back is welcome and hoped for.
[Oh, and you could probably figure this out, but even though there is nothing even resembling "pornography" presented, it might not be suitable for a workplace viewing environment.]
