Dr. Ceci Moss: Expanded Internet Art
Date(s) - February 18, 2020
Author Dr. Ceci Moss will offer a short introduction to her new book Expanded Internet Art: Twenty-First-Century Artistic Practice and the Informational Milieu, the first comprehensive art historical study of “expanded” internet art practices. The book charts the rise of a multidisciplinary approach to online artistic practice in the past decade, discussing recent currents in contemporary artistic practice that parallel the explosion of the internet through advances such as social media, smart phones, and faster bandwidth. Internet art is no longer determined solely by its existence on the web; rather, contemporary artists are making more art about informational culture using various methods of both online and offline means. It asks how artists, such as Seth Price, Harm van den Dorpel, Kari Altmann, Artie Vierkant and Oliver Laric, create a critical language in response to the persuasive influence of informational capture on culture and expression, where the environment itself becomes reorganized to be more legible as information.
