Nebulous in its shape, net art encompass digital work distributed through or in reference to the internet. Net art’s emergence can be traced back to the 90s when artists were experimenting with websites and new softwares, such as wwwwwwwww.jodi.org’s deconstructionist approach to HTML. In 2016, "net art" may evoke for most slick 3D-rendered objects and assertively vivid colors.
How has net art complicated the notions of beauty? What can the aesthetic circulation of net art tell us about identity, power and privilege within the US and worldwide?

What are the trade-offs for artists, creative freelance workers, and other independent contractors in an economy altered by the internet? How are artists responding to these issues in their practices?
