Karen ArcheyIntroduction

The research below humbly represents many, many hours spent on the internet over the course of many, many years. I’ve paused over the last few months, on this “online research editorship” as it were, to jot down my most prized surf flotsam, often harkening back to moments when I was first discovering internet art and new media. While some of these are new finds, such as Lean In’s stock photography database or the web-based Museum of Post Digital Cultures, others entries, such as the 1993 piece jodi.org or Harm van den Dorpel’s Ethereal Self and Ethereal Others, are well-known to those familiar with new media art history, but perhaps not to the more mainstream audience that Opening Times seeks to address.
