This great task follows the partecipation of Shockart.net, as ideator and curator of the web_Art section, at the first Valencia Biennial of the Art (Spain, summer 2001 – http://www.shockart.net/bienaldevalencia/flash.htm).
The new selection has been realized with the will of presenting some of the most interesting aspects and products of non-commercial web_design today. Each work that will be shown at shockart@flashforward will be integrated into an innovative AI engine which guides the user trought the different artworks. This is based upon an experimental technology that Shockart.net is developing in collaboration with the Engineering Faculty of the University of Study of Sannio (Italy). The AI interface technology is a new way to help the user surfing the Internet, matching the opportunities offered by CODING, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE and ADVANCED COMMUNICATION.
