"Online Discussion Forum: Net Art - Art or Merely Manipulated Information"

USA United States of America
The computer, the greatest impact on artistic practice since the camera.
Proponents claim that digital technology has become the ultimate artist's
tool, challenging our everyday perceptions about color, form, sound, space,
and time. Digital technology is very powerful, making images infinitely malleable. In
digital media, all information is reduced to binary code, creating a dynamic
environment where images can be melded, morphed or made to disappear. But
is it art, we ask.
The answer to this question is open for discussion as are the surrounding
issues of standards, quality, and venue. SpecialtyArts.Com, Inc. plans to
publish all visitor comments and suggested resources that contribute
positively to the forum and invite an exchange of ideas.
SpecialtyArts.Com mounts online net art highlights, behind the scenes
commentary, and listings of Internet resources to acquaint the uninitiated
to the world of net art. Quickly check out what's happening in
cyberspace (010101:Art in Technological Times and The Art of the Screen
Saver), as well as what's showing at the special exhibition galleries of
The Whitney Museum of American Art. Participate in
