JavaScript is a programming language used to make web pages interactive. It runs on your visitor’s computer and doesn’t require constant downloads from your website. JavaScript is often used to create polls and quizzes. It adds animation in the place of flash which was not supported by apple. jQuery is a set of JavaScript libraries that have been designed specifically to simplify HTML document traversing, animation, event handling, and Ajax interactions.

net.art and GIFs 3618pm

The internet has impacted people and especially art, in revolutionary ways. It didn’t fully occur to me how greatly though until I read http://www.irational.org/cern/netart.txt and http://contemporary-home-computing.org/1tb/archives/2466. The article for Chuck Poynter is a tribute to his contributions to the internet. He does seem fishy having started so late but who knows! Anyway, it is absolutely beautiful and shows some excellent examples of his work. The use of the internet as an interactive medium was slightly hard to conceive but those who can, create thought-provoking, controversial pieces of work. Some are clear in their intent but others take some willingness to search and braveness to explore. I’ve been afraid to click for some obvious reasons (viruses, spyware) and out of sheer terror of seeing something that could scar me….never know. Either way net.art is it’s own field that requires its own medium to create works of art that mean something to someone. Isn’t that all art is?

Net art involves experience. In most cases you have to interact with the piece to discover the meaning behind it, if you ever do. This contrasts with the way most art is perceived these days which is as an object to be aesthetically appreciated. Now when I look at a painting on the internet I am not in the actual presence of the physical piece but I do experience something. Through ArtStor you can even see parts of art works closer than you could in real life but the real, original piece may be different in person.
