Whitney ARTPORT: The Whitney Museum Portal to Net Art [Macromedia Flash

Created by the Whitney Museum, this portal to digital art has been around for some time, but is still worth another look. The portal includes current "gate pages", that point to the work of selected artists and change monthly, along with an archive of gate pages dating back to 2001. In the section on commissioned digital art projects, the current lineup includes The Dumpster (Valentine's Day, 06) by Golan Levin with Kamal Nigam and Jonathan Feinberg, blog posts about breakups scavenged in 2005, and {Software} Structures by Casey Reas (with Robert Hodgin, William Ngan, Jared Tarbell) exploring the idea of software as art. Finally, the resources section lists galleries, networks and museums on the Web, publications, and new media festivals, while the collection area showcases digital art owned by the Whitney Museum. Altogether, ARTPORT provides a great jumping off place to the far-flung and ephemeral world of Web art.
