    This was on  last week's Scout Report...worth taking a look.

    The Whitney Museum of Art: 2000 Biennial exhibition

         Internet Art
         http://www.whitney.org/exhibition/2kb/internet.html
         This year's seventieth Whitney Biennial is the first to include
    Internet art. The nine
         sites in the show "range from those that consist almost exclusively
    of text to others
         that are collages of images and sound." Darcey Steinke's
    "Blindspot" is one of the
         former, presenting small, evocative chunks of hyper-linked texts in
    re-sizing
         windows. Ben Benjamin's "Superbad," with its seemingly endless
    array of
         graphics, animations, and a few words, is the other end of the
    spectrum. Those
         able to go to New York City can see the sites projected on a large
    screen in the
         Internet Art Gallery, with additional computers available in the
    Hurst Family Gallery.
         The rest of us will have to put up with the tedium of waiting for
    images to load with
         our dial-in connections. [DS]
