would yelling through a megaphone count? I know there's an experimental subgenre in music that samples and manipulates static and short-wave signals into "songs." Or is it in the act of transmission (like video art) that this art form manifests? I can see it having to clear the same critical hurdles as video art did 2 or 3 decades ago -- the same sort of "is it really art?" type ruminations. It'd be interesting to hear some of the visionaries in this emerging field.3/2/2005 9:38:10 AM
