Pixel Plunderİ is seven web specific projects which range from a 'sanctioned'
appropriation of the Tate Modern's website by Harwood from the Mongrel
Collective; 0100101110101101.ORG 'Life Sharing' which allows the viewer
complete entry into the artist's computer and system folder; Duchampian
'Digital Readymades' harvested through net search engines by MTAA Collective;
Joanna Briggs' 'Haikoo' which parallels and challenges the structure of
web-based information by borrowing from and mimicking the popular search
engine Yahoo; Negativland's 'Pastor Dick's Mailbox' a long time associate
who has been spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ since 1981; Trip Dixon's
'Cling Wrap & Gag ' - an organic remodelling of the interface meshed with
a playable re-creation device, to 'I Love Mouchette'...an obsessive love
site found on the web which features 'borrowed' files from mouchette.org
mixed with furtive snapshots of the famous reclusive 13 year old net art
star Mouchette discovered on the streets of Toronto.
Access to Pixel Plunderİ should be unlimited and total. All net art should
be free. Mistrust authority - promote decentralisation. Pixel Plunderİ
should be judged by the net art, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age,
race, or position. You create art and beauty on a computer. Computers
can change your life for the better or worse. The good thing about Pixel
Plunderİ is that it's free, everyone who has a dial-up can see it and
if you like it...take it.
If you are part of this culture, if you have contributed to it and other
people in it know who you are and call you a net artist, you're a net
