Lessons in NetArt: Theory


by Thomas Dreher

IASL online Lessons in NetArt: Theory: Now two texts are available in English:

Conceptual Art and Software Art: Notations, Algorithms and Codes: Self-replicative and generative codes have been developed in Software Art. Intermedia Art´s relations between notation and realisation are expanded by new mutations in relations between readable code and computer processing: Examples of program codes appear as the next step after formalizations of verbal concepts in Dada, Fluxus and Conceptual Art. And on the other hand: These formalized notations can be presented as precursors of Software Art.

Participation with Camera: From the Video Camera to the Camera Phone: The development of the camera´s technology (video camera, WebCam, camera phone) and its context had and has consequences for the development of strategies to integrate participative uses of cameras into projects. The article outlines the camera´s use as a subject of change from video and net projects to collaborative mapping with locative media.

The article "Participation with Camera" offers an overview on some of the nearly hundred projects described in German in:

Collected tips: Interactive Urban Experience with Locative Media (Mapping) Part 1, Part 2.

Collected tips 1-3: Interactive Urban Experience with Digital Media (Internet, Mobile Telephone and Locative Media).
