What remains of this experiment in shared writing is a collective text, a range of arguments and moods around the concept of ” artwork”; artwork in general, but also more specific net artwork.

As Olia Lialina demonstrates in the article “Location=”Yes”“, the information in the location bar of a navigator is important and artists use this in their works.

Information en français.
