Could someone please remind me of Steve Dietz's definition of digital art?
It's something like "computation, networks..."

Subject: Re: [NEW-MEDIA-CURATING] definitions - Rosalind is Born.
*Rosalind is Born.*
*Rosalind,* an upstart new media art lexicon, has just been born
following a sheltered 9 month gestation.
Feed Rosalind with your own words and definitions to express and declare
what you are, what you do and the worlds you create, on your own terms.
*Influence and mutate her, help her to maturity.*
*Your words may:-*
- describe something very particular to your life/experience/work &
- be invented in a moment of desperation.
- arise in conversation or dialogue with others.
- already be in circulation yet not officially seen or accepted by new
*What definitions will related to:*
Net art, new media, psychogeography, online performance, real-time
creativity, soft groups, writers, code geeks, curators, relationalists,
activists, networkers, networked collecitves, net activism, social
networks, net mutualists, net sufi's...
Information about Rosalind's Gestation period
*Rosalind began as GEST@TION*, a hidden project. This ensured that the
vocabulary was able to develop in a nurturing space unmediated and
consumed by outside sources and without interference or exploitation by
ruthless individuals or term-hungry institutions;-)
This project was concieved in January 2004 For 9 months the nascent
lexicon was fed with words and their definitions.
In early September 2004 we agreed a name for the lexicon- Rosalind-
after Rosalind Franklin
launched it to the world to be influenced, mutated and helped to
maturity by all who interact with it.
*The Gest@tors were:*
marc garrett, neil jenkins, ruth catlow, ivan pope, helen varley
jamieson, karla ptacek, andy deck, joseph & donna mcelroy, alan
sondheim, ryan griffis, michael szpakowski, patrick lichty, maya
kalogera and alexandra reill.
Participants may wish to adopt new terms as they are added to the
lexicon. If so, the person who submits the term in question should embed
the definition in a web page on their own site. The term can then be
referenced in the public location.
*GEST@TION is a Furtherfield project.*
