When the internet emerged as a mass global communication network in the mid-1990s, artists immediately recognized the exciting possibilities for creative innovation that came with it.
This book considers the many diverse forms of internet art and the tools and equipment used to create them, while discussing the wider cultural context and historical importance of the work.
Covering email art, websites, artist-designed software and projects that blur the boundaries between art and design, product development, political activism and communication, "Internet Art" shows how artists have employed online technologies to engage with the traditions of art history, to create new forms of art and to depart into fields of activity normally beyond the artistic realm.
Throughout the book, the views of artists, curators and critics offer an insider's perspective on the subject, while a timeline and glossary provide easy-to-follow guides to the key works, events and technological developments that have taken art into the 21st century.
