What Franklin Furnace Learned from Presenting and Producing Live Art on the Internet, from 1996 to Now

by Martha Wilson

Leonardo, 2005, v. 38, no. 3, pp. 193-200

The year 1996 saw the dramatic transformation of the artists' organization Franklin Furnace from a site-based entity to a conveyor of live on-line art. From early experiments in "live" Internet video to public art drawing on wireless technology, the author traces the development of a nascent art practice through its both groundbreaking and idiosyncratic formative years.
