Some Recent Reworking of the Concept

In a context of a playful exploration of the Internet as a transmissive and instructional medium for contemporary art, including digressions into the recursive nature of "website" construction and the effect of those underlying structures in shaping the social, aesthetic, and commercial consciousness of both casual "netcruiser" and potential content and product consumer.

We will investigate the "neural network" nature of this medium as a result of the evolution of the hardware and technology elements comprising the Internet and its utilization of the expanding Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and consider its development into a world wide "lingua franca" effectively integrating hardware-based, software platform-mediated textual, graphical, and audio-visual content and presentation formats and the effect of this pervasive extra-national presence on both fragile and robust traditional societal structures.

We will also survey the effect of content-explicit, context-hinted, eclectic and humorous integration of "interactive" user components in extending site user "retention" and "dwell time" with particular emphasis on the employment of socially mediated iconographic image context and content awareness and the part it plays in the process of capturing a target audience's attention via inter- and-exogenic symbology and reiterative acculturation in the areas of format expectation.

In this brave new medium, artists may more freely express - and to a wider audience - their lucent imaginative processes and the paradigms that inform them, and that educated and thus expectancy-primed audience is able to more directly communicate their response to its artists. The nature of the non-conforming vision of artists presents a difficult learning linkage with the public-at-large, and the Internet may be the medium necessary to transcend this traditional conceptual chasm in a manner that will constructively enhance the livelihood of the artists.
