Nasty as U Wanna Be: Nasty Nets


Net art: I love it because it is the first emerging media that I am in a position to have a contemporaneous perspective on (having come of age simultaneously with the internet) and it is still completely over my head.

From the NYUFF:

"Identifying themselves as an 'internet surfing club,' Nasty Nets is an international ensemble representing some of the most active artists working online today. Together their work both celebrates and critiques the internet by employing original and appropriated imagery and audio, such as animated gifs, YouTube hacks, html cheat codes, and other found and edited material, offering a poignant and humorous take on contemporary digital visual culture."

Nasty Nets screened the content of their new DVD release, "Nasty as U Wanna Be" at the 15th (and final!) New York Underground Film Festival.
