Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham.

In the networked art the artwork ‘s boundaries dissolve in the intertwined relationships between subjects, objects, strategies and theories. This process not only modifies artistic, political and commercial models, but it transforms the culture, the languages and the logic behind the theories of the interconnected society. Inter-disciplinarity, indetermination, transformation, decentralization and interaction, are among the key concepts of the sixties. But they are also the background of the artists that have used the telematic networks to plan new worlds or to critique the existing ones. The conference ‘History of the Net Arts’ has the purpose to gather some important experiences about some of the most active subjects, their actions and external collaboration with institutions, groups and movements, the technologies they used and, even more importantly, their theorical, social and cultural goals. A conference curated by Tommaso Tozzi and Alessandro Ludovico, Friday, July 29, 2005, Accademia di Belle Arti (Academy of Fine Arts), Carrara, Italy), with: Robert Adrian (Wien, AU), Hans Bernhard (Ubermorgen, Wien, AU), Arturo Di Corinto (Roma, IT), Steven Kovats (V2, Rotterdam, NL), Enrico Pedrini (Genova, IT), Cornelia Sollfrank (Old Boys Network, Hamburg, DE), Luca Toschi (Firenze, IT) and the installation: “Audio and Video recording from the seventies and eighties” by Giuseppe Chiari (Firenze – IT).
