Pop Songs about Computers/the Internet
"I'm really curious about the relationship between pop culture, the Internet, and music right now, so I love looking and listening through this Are.na list."
"This website by artist Michelle Ellsworth is 'committed to preparing for the eventual evolution or obsolescence of the Y Chromosome.' I'm deeply inspired (and humored) by the way that Ellsworth weaves choreography, cultural commentary, and the Internet into her work. Recommend just taking some time clicking around this one."
"A directory of 'handmade webpages' run by Elliot Cost. Browsing the collection of featured websites always reminds me why I love small scale work made for the web. The sites offer a nice antidote to the many websites we see today that are made with website builders or complex frameworks that all end up looking and feeling the same."
Olia Lialina's "Summer"
"Pioneering net artist Olia Lialina refers to this 2013 piece as 'the most fragile GIF on the WWW.' You can start viewing the work by clicking on any of the links listed on that page. Each frame of the gif is hosted on one of the listed sites. I love how this simple concept highlights both the powerful and delicate nature of our networked world."
"A gorgeous zine-archiving project by Neta Bomani where a zine or experiment was posted every day for 100 days. I loved following this project and seeing zines take the form of earrings, tea bags, circuits, and more. I was constantly surprised and in awe."
