If you sigh wistfully every time you think about the original dot-com years (we Web monkeys sure do), you need to see this time capsule of new-media art made in the wake of the boom. The show includes Paul Pfeiffer's classic spinning-basketball video "John 3:16" and Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's "33 Questions Per Minute," a computer program processing random words into questions, in the spirit of that old philosophy chestnut about (non-Web) monkeys typing Hamlet.
