Submissions are now invited for the fourth edition of the Stunned Net Art Open.

The Net Art Open takes a different approach to the curation of Net 
Art online. Rather then present a single event based exhibition 
selected by a curator or panel of selectors the Net Art Open is an 
ongoing blog based process delivered by RSS feed. Curatorial bias has 
been removed by accepting all work which meet the criteria The result 
is a true reflection of the state of Net Art now.

The emphasis in this edition will be bringing the exhibition to the 
audience taking account of the changing way people access the net. 
With so much new work being produced all the time even with the best 
will in the world it's difficult to keep up so the Net Art Open will 
be blogged one work at a time with RSS feeds for newsfeed readers and 
blog aggregators, each entry will be tagged for technorati and 
del.icio.us and a flickr pool will be created. In addition each entry 
will feature on the front page of Stunned.org.

New in this edition we will reintroduce a little curatorial bias by 
inviting a number of guests to, yes, curate a personal selection from 
the exhibition and we will be investigating a gallery version of the Open.

The net art open was started in 2002 by Conor McGarrigle and Arthur X 
Doyle as part of the Irish Museum of Modern Art.com intervention, 
subsequent editions were in 2003 and 2004-5.

Closing date for the first call April 20th.
