Art and technology also come together through the Nasty Nets, an international ensemble representing 25 of the Web's most active artists. Their work "both celebrates and critiques the Internet by employing original and appropriated imagery, audio, animated gifs, YouTube hacks, html cheat codes, and other found or edited material--all of which offer a humorous and poignant take on contemporary digital visual culture," according to Sundance materials.
We're especially intrigued by a Nasty Nets event Friday at Sundance called Night of a Thousand Megabytes, described as "a late-night digital art-making jam." Pizza in a can is reportedly on the menu.
