Net Works offers an inside look into the process of successfully
developing thoughtful, innovative digital media. In many
practice-based art texts and classrooms, technology is divorced
from the socio-political concerns of those using it. Although there
are many resources for media theorists, practice-based students
sometimes find it difficult to engage with a text that fails to
relate theoretical concerns to the act of creating. Net Works
strives to fill that gap.
Using websites as case studies, each chapter introduces a
different style of web project--from formalist play to social
activism to data visualization--and then includes the artists' or
entrepreneurs' reflections on the particular challenges and
outcomes of developing that web project. Scholarly introductions to
each section apply a theoretical frame for the projects. A
companion website offers further resources for hands-on
Combining practical skills for web authoring with critical
perspectives on the web, Net Works is ideal for courses in new
media design, art, communication, critical studies, media and
technology, or popular digital/internet culture.
