Abstract (English)

Discussing the view of conceptual art as existing outside major centres, Wood presents the work of the N.E. Thing Co. (NETCO) as "not derivative but distributive, not subsidiary but on-line." Shaw examines NETCO's landscape works, encompassing "nature, mapping, environmental and communication systems, the body, and the suburban and the urban." In individual texts (some reprinted), nine essayists deal with the relation of business and art, NETCO's media use, and the ethos of the group's activity. 42 bibl. ref.
