Since 1991 THE THING has provided an ongoing venue for developing,
supporting, and presenting innovative media art and criticism.
From sponsoring a prescient electronic edition by the noted artist
Peter Halley in 1993, the ranks of artists who were among the earliest
to explore the possibilities of electronic networks through THE THING
include Beat Streuli, Mariko Mori, Rainer Ganahl, Craig Kalpakjian and
Daniel Pflumm. Similarly, notable curators such as Benjamin Weil and
Jordan Crandall undertook many of their foundational projects in
conjunction with THE THING.
THE THING has served as a workplace with access to production and
network facilities for visiting artists, cultural workers, and
technicians; as a space for ad hoc gatherings, events, and exhibitions;
and as the publisher and maintainer of a series of arts-oriented
newsletters and publicly accessible websites, most notably the THE THING
BBS at http://bbs.thing.net.
Please contribute to this ongoing, innovative cultural project.
