Transparent Network Gallery

We are delighted to be working once again with sponsor Digital Pond of San Francisco, in producing this provocative exhibit of artistic visions addressing the Transparent Network theme.

The original Verbum magazine and the many books and exhibits produced during the '90s showcased the works of innovative and thoughtful artists working with the new digital tools. Here in 2004, these tools are now well established and the definition of "fine art" in the digital domain is still being debated. These works are by top artists who have already made many vital contributions to the field.

GALLERY CONCEPT

These works interpret the Transparent Network theme in a variety of ways, touching on some of the same topics through this expressive medium that our speakers will address through the medium of words: alternative news media, open source computing, many-to-many publishing, biomimicry, the biosphere's Web of Life, Teilhard’s noosphere, Sheldrake’s morphogenetic field... and the “innernet” of collective consciousness.

ARTISTS
