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' obsessive love site found on the web which features 'borrowed' files from 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 artist.
