quite aside from this month's thread, however, it seems curious - anyone
on the list able to go and report back?

The Paper Chase:
Why do Many of Today's Leading Media Artists and Curators Choose to
Works on Paper?

When one thinks of media art -- video or net.art, for example -- paper
unrelated or even irrelevant. Yet media curators and artists often choose
to present works on paper (in the forms of prints, drawings, and
photography, for example) for aesthetic, archival, or financial reasons.
some, this might seem ironic or paradoxical: why take "one step forward,
steps back" in terms of choice of medium? Is there a conceptual choice
involved when a media artist or curator decides to use paper? Or are the
decisions merely practical? Our panel will discuss these issues by
presenting specific examples from various exhibitions and projects.
