Re: <nettime> Let's talk about Internet art:

art that uses the internet as part of its concept

   2. How do you judge an Internet Art piece?

like any other piece of art

well, it never did excite me so much in the first place. maybe the esthetics of the screen.

   4. What do you think is the most important input that Internet art
   brings to the art world today?

i don´t see much input. the "art world" thrives without the internet, at least here in Vienna.

i´m a composer, i don´t curate.

   Internet Art and give this kind of art a legitimization in the art

they don´t care

   13. Are Internet art audiences different than museum and galleries
audiences? If so, do you think is important to form new audiences for

i´ve never seen an "internet art audience", besides at festivals like ars electronica.

   14. Are we in the "post-object" era and what does this mean?

no, we are not

   15. Which are your favorite Internet art pieces?
