For my course I had to write a case study on a topic of my interest. For subject I chose the online net art community www.Rhizome.org. The main reason for that is that the book in which I heard about new media for the very first time and changed my life forever, was written by Mark Tribe, Rhizome’s founder. This case study gave me the chance to explore the net art movement and the way it emerged and evolved over the years, during the period when the internet was rapidly becoming the powerful medium of today.
Reflecting on that piece of work, I am not very satisfied with my performance. Reasonable since that was my first proper research text, in which there should be bibliography and references for every little piece of information mentioned in the essay. It took me a while to get used to that. Another issue was that it took me ages to finish it, because of getting distracted by all these awesome projects I stumbled upon. That’s probably the price when researching interesting topics.
