You are invited to THE GREAT INTERNET SLEEPOVER!!!!!!!!
Camp out with pro net surfers and net surfing clubs as we talk shop, play games, pitch tents, and make a hypertext mess big enough for mom to clean up in the morning.
The Great Internet Sleepover is aimed at highlighting and supportng a developing web art movement and aesthetic. It is a chance for artists and groups creating things on the internet to meet in person, while still "keeping it on the net." Participation is welcome, and encouraged. Sleepovers are a time of bonding, and this one will hopefully lead to new collaborative works and partnerships. The artists will also have access to Eyebeam's arsenal of technologies, and the open structure of the event hopes to mimic in a physical form the same kind of free-for-all, democratic, pigpile-of-content, non sequitor style that characterizes these web surf clubs.
