The paper explores the concept of artistic prototypes to analyse a strand of new media art generated within research or activist contexts. Two key features of a framework for artistic prototypes, openness and fictionality, are explored through the discussion of two artworks which embody a sense of prototypicality. The contingent, situated interpretation of knowledge emerging from creative practice-based research is associated to the instability of prototypes proposed as a paradigmatic object for experimentation.
