The origin of the word Net.Art
The origin of Internet art is widely believed to be the result of an email received by the Internet artist Vuk Ćosić containing some garbled code in which the word 'net.art' could be identified. But what really happened was that Pit Schultz curated an exhibition of Internet art called 'net. art' in 1995, featuring artists such as ︎︎︎Vuk Ćosić , ︎︎︎JODI, Heath Bunting and Alexei Shulgin.
“Alexei Shulgin, He invented that story, like how I received some emails, and everything was garbled, every single is crooked. And all I could read is this expression net dot art. But that's total fiction. It didn't happen.”
