Screaming Screen and Binary Idealism

Author(s): Auer, Johannes

A text about surfaces and screens, flat mice and done in cats, the longing for death in Internet and the "binary idealism", a little Plato, even Flusser. Does netart really lay in the code? Are hackers the real net artists? Is the visualisation of the machine-code on the screen just as useless and inferior as the dull, boring piece of art in Plato's ideal state?
