two good starting points you should explore:
The ISEA 96 Web Page:
has a long list of artists creating work for the Web (as well as in other
electronic forms). On that page, you'll find their Electronic Arts Guide
which is rather comprehensive.
Also, check out the 5CyberConf which will begin on June 6th. It is an
international conference that addresses the social, political and cultural
implications of cyberspace from a critical standpoint and encourages
discussions. There are a number of artists presenting information. From
there visit the Web Page for Fundacion Arte y Techologia de Telefonica --
they have a wonderful and comprehensive list of links which will also answer
some of your other questions.
The URL is: http://www.telefonica.es/fat/ecyb.html
Also, do visit check out Arts Wire's CURRENT Ezine which is published weekly
on the Web and via listserv. It has ongoing coverage of artists who create
work for the Internet (and offline) as well as coverage of important
copyright and intellectual property issue:
http://www.artswire.org/Artswire/www/current.html will get you to this
week's issue. Back issues are located in the archive.
