Expanded Internet Art is the first comprehensive art historical study of "expanded" internet art practices. Charting the rise of a multidisciplinary approach to online artistic practice in the past decade, the text discusses recent currents in contemporary artistic practice that parallel the explosion of the internet through advances such as social media, smart phones, and faster bandwidth. Internet art is no longer determined solely by its existence on the web; rather, contemporary artists are making more art about informational culture using various methods of both online and offline means. It asks how artists, such as Seth Price, Harm van den Dorpel, Kari Altmann, Artie Vierkant and Oliver Laric, create a critical language in response to the persuasive influence of informational capture on culture and expression, where the environment itself becomes reorganized to be more legible as information.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Unfold, surf, drift -- in this insightful book, Ceci Moss presents Internet art in an expanded frame, returning to Jean-Francois Lyotard's important 1985 exhibition "Les Immate'riaux" in Paris, and continuing on through contemporary artists responding to the Internet. Recommended reading for anyone interested in twenty-first-century aesthetics and culture. * Alexander R. Galloway, Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication, New York University, USA *
What does art do in an information-driven culture? Moreover, how does information-driven art enable us to take note of the changes in our culture? This book draws a line under competing theories of the place of art, post-internet, that have been jostling for space since pre-internet days, and reminds us - simply and urgently - that art can and does (or can even choose not to). Ceci Moss has written a clear-eyed conversational treatise that joins philosophies of technology and recent histories of information-driven art and her efforts will help any student or practitioner navigate our fluid media landscape. I've always wanted a book that brought Simondon, Lyotard, Laric, and LOL cats together, and now I've got one. * Sarah Cook, Curator and Professor of Museum Studies, University of Glasgow, UK *
