Is there a good place to start in order to get going with Web-Art? Most certainly. The correct starting point is Rhizome.org - ever since 1996.
Rhizome does it all correctly. It commissions web sites as works of art. It writes and about them and proselytizes. It encourages and supports artists and artistic movements. It curates, catalogs and gives prizes. It will even help you set up web hosting for your site. Rhizome is Web-Art.
So where's the best place to start in Rhizome? Of course, it's in their collection of Web Art at ArtBase. You will access over 2,000 sites by title artist name, title, keyword and even using a Java time line.
Why aren't there more Rhizomes?
