ASU Digital Culture Gallery

2012.02.01 / HTML Art

Students created digital works of art using only text and HTML code. Their work was uploaded to ASU's online hosting server and tested for cross browser functionality. Students were asked to consider the following: The materials employed in crafting their art (such as the infinite amount of electronic space online); compositional elements (like background color, typeface, visible/invisible elements); linearity/nonlinearity of text in web environments; the “approximate” nature of net.art; the experience of end-user navigation through work; the physical movement of viewer/end-user; use of forms, tables, ascii, etc.; and the convergence of form with content.
