1. The "Project 2006"

From 1995 to 2003, The Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts hosted the "
Art on the Net" project promoting the Internet as a space for artistic
expression. After the nine years of "Art on the Net," we launched a new
event called the "Project" 2004. The "Project"
has been calling on artists around the world to investigate together the
relationship between Art, the Internet and the Society.

The Exhibition section of the project will feature recent developments
in Internet Art and is open to all forms of creative expression that use
the Internet as their primary medium.

Although this project is focused on the latest developments in the field
of Internet Art, we are also very interested in considering
contributions that reflect the influence of Internet Art production on
the wider fields of Media-Art, Digital Art, curatorial practice, digital
pedagogy, and online publishing.
