Ippolito quoted in Right Click Save article about internet art

Jon Ippolito, professor of new media, was quoted in a Right Click Save article about the legacy of internet art for the NFT space. Ippolito said that net art was a new generation’s collective needling at accomplishments in fine art and technology. “Artists are good at pulling back the veneer to reveal reality, and the reality of the Internet in the ’90s was that websites often didn’t work. This was not just due to faulty code, but also because the infrastructure was still rickety. Sometimes you would just type in a [correct] URL and the browser couldn’t find it. So artists made lemonade from lemons by exploiting these glitches to create original and surprising experiences,” Ippolito said.
