abstract

The contribution proposes the analysis of Net Art’s world-famous masterpiece of one of its founders: My Boyfriend Came Back from the War (1996) by Olia Lialina. Combining black and white images and words, it evokes the encounter of two lovers who have been separated so long by the war. With her work, Lialina shows us the potential for interaction of the new screen – that of the computer. She experiments with a non-linear narration, where users edit the story frames thanks to hypermedia platform, resulting in a new relationship between author and public. Considering such operations, the paper aims to highlight the work’s ludic connotation beside the impact of filmic narrative on the web.
