Description

Ongoing, html, javascript, mov, flv, browsers, etc.

The artists in the Nasty Nets collective approach storytelling by manipulating the fools and media found on the World Wide Web. Nasty Nets is an international ensemble representing 25 of the most active artists working online today. Their work both celebrates and critiques the internet by employing original and appropriate imagery, audio, animated gifs, YouTube hacks, html cheat codes, and other found or edited material—all of which offer a humorous and poignant take on contemporary, digital visual culture.

You are invited to create visual mischief of your own on the Internet at "nasty Nets: Night of a Thousand Megabytes." a late-night digital art-making jam at New Frontier on Main.

Nasty Nets was founded by artists John Michael Boling, Joel Holmberg, Guthrie Lonergan, and Marisa Olson. Members include Peter Baldaes, Michael Bell-Smith, Kevin Bewersdorf, Brian Blomerth, Charles Broskoski, Petra Cortright, Chris Coy, Paul B. Davis, Michael Guidetti, Britta Gustafson, Travis Hallenbeck, Chance Jackson, Lektrogirl, Tom Moody, Javier Morales, Camille Paloque-Berges, Paul Slocum, James Whipple, Robert Woodzinski and Damon Zucconi.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
