SOME DO – SOME DON’T
More than Point and Click – A romp through the nook and crannies of cyberart and politics on the Internet. This talk will be of interest to everyone interested in the web, from the casual surfer to the advanced web author.
Sheila Urbanoski will present and discuss an overview of Internet-based artists’ projects and social activism, including reviewing political interventions and subversive projects undertaken over the last few years. Discussion will also revolve around the effective (or in some cases, very ineffective) usage of narrative, writing content and web design with oodles of examples and discussion.
