<nettime> Re: net art history

>>>>>ALso, I am sure this has been part of your consideration,,,,

but as an art exists, so must a viewer...  I have not read much myself on 
how this   contemporary viewer is being defined>>>  ...but i have 
Defined it myself as the user-viewer.

       this user-viewer is the critical observer of the events that occur 
within the interface of the technology in question: in our case,   the 
increasingly middle-class technologies of the internet:   the Cyborg 
extensions of our bodies that allow us to communicate with each other via 
electronic machine technology:::::::::::

     The user-viewer is one who critically observes and participate swithin 
an artwork that requires both technological user interactivity, and viewer 
interpretation. The typical user is a sender-receiver, but the user-viewer 
is simply the critical, observational, sender-receiver<<<<-----

but maybe I'm just talking bollocks.
