>
> Networked Goals:
>
> (1) To commission five chapters and publish them online using Wiki/ 
> blog
> technology to enable the public to revise, update, debate and  
> translate them
>
> (2) To present public forums to publicize the online book and solicit
> participation in its development.
>
> Networked Objectives:
>
> :: To develop and publish an online, trans-disciplinary book that will
> address recent artistic developments made possible by computers,  
> networks,
> and mobile connectivity
>
> :::: To present the book in an open, participatory and social form
>
> :::::: To document:
>
> :::::::::: the collapse of the traditional distinction between  
> artist, art
> work and audience
>
> :::::::::: the shaping of creative practice that is open, contingent  
> and
> participatory
>
> :::::::::: the building of virtual communities which, in the words  
> of Howard
> Rheingold, "becomes inevitable wherever computer mediated  
> communications
> technology becomes available to people anywhere." (The Virtual  
> Community,
> 1993)
>
> We invite 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.
>
> "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 "book" might  
> take.
>
> We hope to spark a conversation between researchers and practitioners,
> curators, artists, and academics in the fields of art (music, sound,  
> dance,
> e-lit, visual art .), architecture, convergence, mapping, urbanism,  
> games,
> sociology, visualization, cultural studies, and environmental studies.
>
> In keeping with the transdisciplinary nature of the book, authors may
> consider, but are by no means limited to, themes such as:
>
> :: cyberspace and identity
> :: ubiquitous computing - surveillance, politics, and privacy
> :: avatars, wearables, bioart and embodiment
> :: collective storytelling, audio narratives and sound art
> :: virtual worlds, mixed realities
> :: locative media - place, mobility, augmented reality
> :: massively multiplayer online games - networked play
> :: responsive architecture and relational environments
> :: social networks
> :: nomadism, psychogeography, and the city
> :: tactical media - performance, agency and activism
> :: open source and crowdsourcing
> :: Originality, copies, remix, mashup
>
> All papers will be reviewed by our international committee.
