wierd how it works..
once the art just stood for itself,  but i think specially in media there is
this increased need to have to write about or stand up and speak about your
work within a thoretical framework,  art+thoery =product . perhaps its
inflation..? perhaps its a reaction to inflation?

was talking to someoen yesterday about how Eryk Salvaggion identified the
major trends in media art his six rules towards a new
internet art posted at rhizome a while ago..
1. No Flash
2. No introduction pages
3. No more art for the sake of error
4. Images must be unique to the sitemaker
5. Technology is not a subject; the Internet is not a subject
6. The work stands alone

what exactly is left..?
