Recommended Reading: Net Narrative catalog

I really enjoyed reading about the political dynamics of postinternet and the complexities of artistic subjectivity that using different platforms fosters.

as for the question""What happens when a network that is the product of collective intellectual and social labour becomes commodified without the consent of that network?"

An expected answer is that people get angry and defensive, distrust academics who don't practice art but theorize it, net veterans act like you are on their turf...intergenerational and intersubjective conflict as far as i know :o

I think this is a progressive move though, because people who have practices based on lulz and net kitsch for example start voicing their dissent or feeling like they have something at stake (for example, the "new media community" vs. Claire Bishop) and become more open to talking about their practices instead of the refusal or inclination to non-verbal means to discuss their work.


Art on the Beautiful Island

wayjayth, thanks for the correction and my apologies for misinterpreting the nationality of the artists. It was absolutely my mistake for misreading the Chinese names for being people from mainland China/of Chinese ethnicity. I grew up in Hong Kong; I should know better.

Overall I feel like Rhizome cultural reporting overlooks media art in Asia (not their fault if no one is based there) and I happened to see that show and wanted to mention my experience of it.

Shu Lea Cheang on Brandon

This is great news; I also had no idea there was a physical installation of the project. I had a chance to see the site months before it was taken down, and at that point thought that the Guggenheim stopped hosting it because the tech obsolesced or that the commission "expired". then I watched a documentary about Brandon after and was totally shocked with his life story and how it happened in the 90s. I hadn't seen such a deeply personal/culturally queer and political piece of web work work and look forward to it being online again. :D
