Museum of Web Art
Week of June 26th, 1999
Welcome to the Museum of Web
Art, an amazing new gallery of electronic art created
exclusively for the Internet. Unlike a normal art gallery, the paintings
in this exhibit are dynamic: they warp, morph, shimmer, and shuffle!
Newcomers may want to start off in the Kids Wing,
where your charming hostess Dot will lead you through an exciting maze
of interactive paintings, cool puzzles, and amazing stories. Do you like
to draw? Draw your own doodles on the chalkboard, or explore the sights
and sounds of "Lizzie," an animated musical adventure where you are the
The main gallery is divided into four fantastic sections. In Things That
Work, you are invited to click on tons of buttons: all shapes,
all sizes, all clickable. This wacky exhibit puts the "fun" back in
"functionality" (which just means how things work). Enjoy!
Ready to get seriously nutty? Head over to Things That
Move, where you'll find a crazy mish-mash of interactive tricks.
Zoom in a car, flip a skateboard, or play pong. What's that, you've
never played pong? You don't know what you're missing, kid.
Time flies when you're having fun. Especially in Things That
Change, a cool techno exhibit that features a mind-boggling mix
of ever-changing images. This crazy mix of weirdo pics includes a purple
Buddha, floating eyeballs, alien beaches, and dancing skeletons. Don't
say we didn't warn you that time flies!
What about stuff that remains the same, like wallpaper? In Things That
Are Constant, you'll zoom around through a buzzing world of
patterns, motifs, and textiles that stay the same, but are different
every time you look at them. Ivy-covered walls, cave paintings, phone
cords, and leaves will never look the same again.
We hope you've enjoyed this trip into the world of web art. Until next
week, happy hyper surfing!
