Contemporary vs. Post-Modern vs. Post Post Modern

Currently working on a piece about New Media work by Joseph DeLappe and the Tool Shed Days art collective. Quite honestly, I’ve been working on this piece for the past couple of weeks off and on because I wanted to explore the notion of the new media artists re-interpreting virtual space as a public place for protest and civil disobedience. I believe I’m onto something. In any case, I need to get the piece done and with a fairly open Sunday, I think I can really (truly) punch something out. Wish me luck.

Oh yeah…about the subject line…’Contemporary vs. Post-Modern vs. Post Post Modern’…Where do you think New Media artists reside on the spectrum? I’m curious. Please feel free to answer the poll below and share your thoughts.
