Seth Price - Dispersion - 38th Street 2008 (facsimile of the 2002 edition)
Seth Price’s Dispersion is an artwork in the form of an art historical essay. First released when Internet was starting to affect our professional lives, it argued that distribution, rather than production, was the primary way in which works accrued meaning, and that artists needed to find ways of harnessing the enormous capacity for meaning-making inherent in communications networks.
Dispersion has became an influential and widely cited touchstone. It is included in Net Art Anthology in recognition of its importance as both an artist’s critical response to, and intervention into, the workings of the net.
