In the wake of the Rihanna-Azaelia-green screen drama, some artists are finally nailing down what actually matters when it comes to discussing so-called "internet art:" it is mass produced for, about, and because of pop appropriation, and it highlights a transcendence of genre only made possible by the web's quickly fluxuating and all-accessible community. That's why it's so relevant to fashion designers like futurey, yet wearable, Proenza Schouler.

Today the web gets to see what Proenza's new Madison Avenue store has been seeing on six CRT TV monitors, and will continue to until November 16th. "Desert Tide" is a video that features custom Second Life avatars wearing four looks from the F/W '12 runway collection.
