Am I an artwork? Yes, no, maybe.
Suis-je une oeuvre d'art ? Oui, non, peut-être.

<http://www.fraclr.org/%7Eabrahams/perl/iamanartwork.pl> has been
commissioned by the FRACLR in 2002. The piece (in perl)  collected visitor
reactions and traced them by IP to influence the colours of the page layout.
This was a way to point to the fact that the visitor wasn't anonymous,
something a lot of visitors weren't aware of in 2002.

More important, and still actual, the piece permitted to openly ask if a
piece of "net art" could be "art" on the site of an official French art
institution.
The 24th of September all the French entries of the piece will be read in
public during a performance in the show called "Chauffe Marcel ! " organised
by the same art institution.
Two microphones will be placed about 10 meters one from another. One will be
used to amplify the "yes" phrases the other the "no" phrases.
