Post internet art
I’m not sure what the exact definition is, but I keep hearing the term “Post internet art”
It usually refers to artists who are “internet aware” and then make art inspired by their world wide web impressions.
I find the word “post” misleading. It implies that we’ve moved one step further, beyond the internet, into new territory.
We live in a post-newspaper world, post-tv, post music industry, things are changing. But I don’t know anything that feels “post-internet”. It’s much too soon for that word.
The futurists were not post-industrial. They were inspired by the industrial revolution and used that as the subject of their art. We might be shifting from an industrial society to an information based one. I am very excited to find out what the next step will be, when the true post-internet will be invented.
