Blog #1 : RIOT

Start your blog as outlined on the syllabus page.

Write a short introduction in your first blog entry and then in your second blog entry, return to the net art work RIOT and begin writing about the themes discussed in class.

Some basic questions:

Who is the artist? Napier? The web site visitor? The three net art visitors putting in the URLs? The designers or makers of the web pages?

What is the work of art? Is it the "idea" of RIOT that then gets executed according to instruction? The code-script that allows the collage to dynamically appear? The random and dynamic interface or data visualization of the collaged sites at any given time?

Here's my sound bite on it:

The WWW as collaboratively generated collage remix machine. AKA pla(y)giarism.
