In the last few years contemporary culture raised a huge interest regarding internet media, mainly because of the wide space opened by high speed data travel in the field of communication. Art, as all the other domains involved, changed itself to some extent while embracing new technologies and ascertained relations within cyberspace. In order to understand properly these hybrid forms of art, an overview of their manifestation and recognition within the art system is needed. The present paper discusses the subject in terms of “theory and example” willing to highlight the difference between two major branches – digital art and net-art –, an aspect that is always disregarded.
