Or-bits.com is devoted to supporting and developing practices, critical dialogues and audience engagement around artistic production, display and distribution online. Through presenting online group exhibitions and critical writing on its blog, the development of offsite gallery projects, print publishing and workshops, or-bits.com aims to instigate an exploration of the phenomena related to the spread and simplification of web-based technology across disciplines. It aims to propagate a model of artistic work that uses and reflects on the web as a language and a medium of production, display and distribution of contemporary art, both online and offline.

Marialaura's talk will then open up to present some issues related to curatorial/artistic work online and its relationship with offline activities of production, display and distribution in order to trigger further discussion in the form of a Q&A session.
