ABOUT Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art)

In 2007, Jo-Anne Green and Helen Thorington (Co-Directors, New Radio
and Performing Arts, Inc. | Turbulence.org) proposed Networked to
Eduardo Navas (NewMediaFIX). Along with Sean Dockray (Telic Arts
Exchange) and Anne Bray (Freewaves), they developed an application to
the National Endowment for the Arts, which funded the project in 2008.

An international Call for Proposals was issued. It defined the
project’s Goals and Objectives and invited contributions that
critically and creatively rethink how networked art is categorized,
analyzed, legitimized — and by whom — as norms of authority, trust,
authenticity and legitimacy evolve. A committee of nine reviewed the
submissions: four authors were commissioned to develop chapters that
are now open for commentary, revision, and translation. A fifth — one
of the runners-up — was invited to contribute. Networked is open to
additional chapters. See Guidelines.

Networked proposes that a history or critique of interactive and/or
participatory art must itself be interactive and/or participatory;
that the technologies used to create a work suggest new forms a “text”
might take.

We invite you to participate. You can comment on an entire chapter,
but the CommentPress plugin also allows you to comment on individual
paragraphs. You are also welcome to translate the chapters into other
