minus 20

minus20 presents nine new web-based artworks selected by critic Sacha Craddock, Jon Thomson (of artist duo Thomson & Craighead [www.thomson-craighead.net]) and John Wyver, Chair of Illuminations [www.illumin.co.uk]

The aim of minus20 was to focus upon works of powerful immediacy with a fast download time - hence all the works had to be less than 20k in file size. This challenge seems to have captured artist’s imaginations with submissions being sent in from around the world and from a wide range of entrants - both artists who usually work with technology and those making a digital work for the first time.

Engagingly concise, the artworks were selected less for their technological innovation and more for their merit as artworks.
