<nettime> Help!

   I have been a great fan of nettime for a number of years but never
   contributed. I am currently writing a Masters dissertation on Bob
   Adrians World in 24Hrs and would like to start a thread to help me
   through the angst I am suffering. My profs at university are adament
   that telecommunications media does not constitute art  - despite
   having recieived a first for a BA dissertation on the same subject
   from the same institution! My thesis is that the telecommunications
   art projects are a truly post modern art form (decentralised, non
   hierarchical etc) that represent the pinnacle of the dissolution of
   the art object. This relates to theories of Rhizomes in the form of
   Felix/Guattari, and the 'open work' by Umberto Eco. I would just like
   some input as to what contributers to nettime think generally about
   the thesis, and the relationship between telecoms art and
   conceptual/performance art.
