EXHIBITION.REVIEW: PROOF: Pictorialised, Constructed, The Act of Seeing With One's Own Eyes
BY: Molly Hankwitz

EXCERPT: With voiceovers from the lost, walking insane, marginal, and misbegotten, this new work echoes his most wonderful of all films, LOST BOOK FOUND (1997). And, finally, net critic and Latina cultural critic, Coco Fusco's piece 'Dolores 10 by 10' (2004), which examines the exploitation and surveillance of real Mexican female tech workers, was a pleasure, finally, to see. However, it is felt that this work deserves infinitely larger and more visual attention in the gallery setting so as to force viewers to deal with the truth of the content.

Curated by Mike Stubbs at the ACMI Screen Arts Gallery, Melbourne, Australia, Australian Centre for the Moving Image, from 09.12.04 to 13.02.05

BOOK.REVIEW: Internet Art by Rachel Greene
BY: Eduardo Navas

EXCERPT: Greene takes a chronological approach throughout the introduction and the first chapter, then moves on to focus on specific strategies or thematics and writes about works that were made in 1995 in direct juxtaposition with others done in later years. Greene contextualizes internet art as an extension of art practices that are now part of the mainstream artworld. Artists like Allan Kaprow, Nam June Paik, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Tony Oursler, Cindy Sherman, and Valle Export among many others are cited as predecessors of internet art, not necessarily in technological terms, but rather in ideological explorations of communication in art practice. The already well-known early net artists like Vuk Cosic Heath Bunting, Olia Lialina, Jodi.org, Alexei Shulgin are mentioned along with others like Clover Cleary, Annie Abrahams, and Andy Deck who can be considered part of a second online generation.
