The self-titled “netwurker” Mez curates trAce’s online galllery for Incubation 2002 (July 15-17). About the artists selected for inclusion, Mez writes: “These _artists_ [or net/code.workers] revel in the fabric of connection modes and core elements that represent the actualities of the net in all its functional glory. The code/net.workers selected for inclusion here engage in production of [artistic] output that employs and mirrors the very blueprinted mechanisms of the net itself.”
With 300+ illustrations and links to projects and artworks discussed in the book, as well as an interesting interface, the website for Manovich’s The Language of New Media (2001) is itself something to explore.
