"Networked" proposes that a history or critique of interactive and/or
participatory art must itself be interactive and/or participatory; that the
technologies used to create a work suggest new forms a "book" might take.
In 2008, Turbulence.org and its project partners -- NewMediaFix, Telic Arts
Exchange, and Freewaves - issued an international, open call for chapter
proposals. We invited contributions that critically and creatively rethink
how networked art is categorized, analyzed, legitimized -- and by whom -- as
norms of authority, trust, authenticity and legitimacy evolve.
Our international committee consisted of: Steve Dietz (Northern Lights, MN)
:: Martha Gabriel (net artist, Brazil) :: Geert Lovink (Institute for
Network Cultures, The Netherlands) :: Nick Montfort (Massachusetts Institute
for Technology, MA) :: Anne Bray (LA Freewaves, LA) :: Sean Dockray (Telic
Arts Exchange, LA) :: Jo-Anne Green (NRPA, MA) :: Eduardo Navas
(newmediaFIX) :: Helen Thorington (NRPA, NY)
Built by Matthew Belanger (our hero!), http://networkedbook.org is powered
by WordPress, CommentPress and BuddyPress.
Networked was made possible with funds from the National Endowment for the
Arts (United States). Thank you.
We are deeply grateful to Eduardo Navas for his commitment to both this
project and past collaborations with Turbulence.org.
