Peter Horvath works in video, sound, photo-based and new media. Camera in hand since age 6, he inhaled darkroom fumes until his late 20s, then began exploring art forms in new media. He immersed himself in digital technologies at the birth of the Web, co-founded 6168.org, a site for net.art, and adopted techniques of photo-montage, which he uses in his web-based and 2D works. Exhibitions include FILE 2003 (São Paulo, Brazil), Musée du Québec (Québec City, Canada), Chiang Mai New Media Art Festival (Chiang Mai, Thailand) as well as venues in New York, Tokyo, London, and numerous net.art showings. He is a founding member of the net.art collective Hell.com. He likes to consider a future when high bandwidth will be free.

This project partially relies on Quicktime plugins that are no longer functional in modern browsers.
Every month from March 2001 to February 2006 an artist was invited to present their work in the form of a “Gate Page” on artport. Each of these pages functioned as a portal to the artist's own sites and projects.
Wherever necessary and possible, these works are made functional through emulation and reconstructions from the Internet Archive. Not all of them have been restored to their original state and their conservation is ongoing. You can also view the original Gate Pages archive to see how they were presented at the time of their creation.
