At the Edge of Art August 6, 2006

https://i0.wp.com/www4.ncsu.edu/~wlcherry/widgets_blog/atheedgeofart.gifAt the Edge of Art makes the case for art that is empowered rather than emasculated, seditious rather than sedate. Yet as important as art’s new functions may be, the Internet–that global lifeblood through which so much of this new art circulates and is recognized–offers no wall labels or a gallery shingles to tell us whether a work is art.

To remedy this, At the Edge of Art looks at six genres–code art, computer games, online autobiography, political activism, online communities, and artificial life — asking in each case where the edge lies between art and software, politics, or science.
