Call for Participation: Two years in the making, Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art) is now open for comments, revisions, and translations. You may also submit a chapter for consideration. Networked proposes that a history or critique of interactive and/or participatory art must itself be interactive and/or participatory; that the technologies used to create a work suggest new forms a book might take. In 2008, Turbulence.org and its project partners — NewMediaFix, Telic Arts Exchange, and Freewaves issued an international, open call for chapter proposals. They invited contributions that critically and creatively rethink how networked art is categorized, analyzed, legitimized — and by whom — as norms of authority, trust, authenticity, and legitimacy evolve.
