Abstract This paper will explore the notion of digital otherness by examining creative practice in a 21st century context of art that is neither belonging to or a part of classifiable genres of the academy. It will look to the notion of otherness through art in the proliferation of the internet of things and consider a position of how memes, creative apps, and fan art have replaced contemporary art as being 'of art' in a global context through the understanding of the space of social media and browser-based networks to derive at a conclusion which posits Hegel through Das Absolute as a means of coming to terms with digital otherness in the space of the academy for the purpose of aesthetic critique.
