This article introduces the history of the net art in the last century, mainly from 1995-1997. Many net artists appeared at that time, programming great and various types of projects on the web that are in the form of websites. From the characteristics of the projects, we can say that the nature of net art is sharing, communicating and gregarious, relates tightly with self-expression of the communities.
Through the net art, people can communicate with each other without limitation. The freedom of expression of the websites allows the artists to speak and communicate with each other. Net art projects are really helpful when it comes to promoting feminism or the rights of other minority groups because the community nature of net art gather the minority groups together and provide a place for them to discuss and express themselves.
However, the openness of net art still triggers some problems. The article mentions that some net artists are afraid that the net art will be over-commercialized and be colonized by mainstream media so that the feature of minority community will fade out. I have experienced a similar situation when one of my favorite websites becomes really popular and the people engaged in later are not so concerned about the art itself. While witnessing something I love becoming popular is a happy experience, the following result might not be that good for the beginners.
