This presentation was created for a “Curatorial Deathmatch” featuring Lindsay Howard vs. Marius Watz, Oct 8, 2011 at Flux Factory in Long Island City, New York. This debate came about as a result of a Twitter thread about the state of net art and the emergence of a new generation of net artists.Thanks to Christina Vassallo for hosting the Deathmatch as part of the monthly Flux Thursday event series. - Marius WatzLinks: http://twitter.com/mariuswatzhttp://twitter.com/lindsay_howard

Hi, my name is Marius and I’m an oldschool media artist (and sometime curator.) My own practice is formalist, concerned w/ visual abstractions through code.
