Vuk Ćosić (SI) is a net.artist known for his ASCII works.

Vuk Ćosić is an artist and a curator, working and living in Ljubljana. Vuk graduated from Univerzitet u Beogradu (The University of Belgrade) and earned a BA in Archaeology in 1991, emigrating that year to Trieste (Italy) and then to newly independent Slovenia. Together with Barbara Borcic (SCCA Ljubljana) and Lilijana Stepancic (SCCA Ljubljana) he is organizing the SCCA Internet Portfolio program. He is a co-founder of Nettime, Syndicate, 7-11, and Ljubljana Digital Media Lab.

Active in politics, literature and art, Ćosić has exhibited, published, and been active since 1994. He is well known for his challenging, ground-breaking work as a pioneer in the field of net.art. His constantly evolving oeuvre is characterized by an interesting mix of philosophical, political, and conceptual network-related issues on the one hand, and an innovative feeling for contemporary urban and underground aesthetics on the other. One of the pioneers of net.art, Ćosić became interested in ASCII code during a long period of research (1996–2001) on low-tech aesthetics, the economy, ecology and archaeology of the media, on the intersections between text and computer code, on the use of spaces in information, its fluid nature and infinite convertibility.
