CAFE INTERNET, Liverpool & CYBERIA INTERNET CAFE BAR, Manchester
revolution98 Top 20 websites have been selected in partnership with C3 (Centre for Culture and Communication, Hungary), MUU (Helsinki), Fournos Cultural Centre (Athens) and Fundagao de Serralves (Portugal).
The following projects from around the world represent the wide range of possibilities being explored on the internet right now: from the construction of virtual worlds, inhabited by virtual beings, to the exploration of virtual galleries and magazines. The websites examine global issues such as the human condition, consumerism, the commodification of art, the potential and limitations of new technology, as well as providing a forum for the discussion of personal concerns such as our fears and hopes for the future. This is an active space, inviting discussion, so log on now!
