The German artist, hacker and “cyberfeminist” Cornelia Sollfrank gained notoriety with her Net.Art Generator (www.obn.org/generator), which allows users to enter a few keystrokes and create a work of art. Sollfrank's real goal is to challenge the concept of authorship in an age where appropriation is as common as the click of a mouse, and this monograph provides a detailed discussion of one of the Net's pioneering artist/theorists.
