Performance on the Web

Marshall Macluhan and Jean Brouillard.

The Medium is the Message


Cultural Amnesia and Hyperactivity of the Digital Media Landscape. There are a series of atomised events that are placed in a vacuum that provide little or no historicity.

All Hypertext is user centred so that the user is not locked into any kind of hierarchy and can pick their way through any kind of navigation thorough the existing space and use their own selection as their own choice.

What is useful for documenting artwork on the web is the accessibility, the navigation forms histories and links that haven’t been explored before and that are not fixed within the hierarchical frameworks of an established text that is seen as core reading for graduates of Art History or Cultural Studies
