The show has no actual subject, but is intending to spotlight the actual working of artists using Internet related technologies, and in this way creating in the eye of the viewer the unity of an image consisting on a variety of different aspects, a.o. technology, work out and artistic approach. Five (5) virtual spaces, i.e. "Living Room, Communication, Garden, Studio and Poetesses' Lounge", form the exhibition environment where the art works are embedded in. The competition represented also the basis for nominating the artists for ***JavaArtist of the Year 2001***, to be awarded for the first time in 2001 and in sequence annually. The Award is an award of honour and is not connected with a material prize.
