Digital technology has revolutionized the way we produce and experience art. Here, Christiane Paul surveys the developments in digital art from its appearance in the 1980s to the present day, and looks ahead to what the future may hold.
This third edition investigates key areas that have recently gained prominence, including the emergence and impact of location-based media, interactive public installation, augmentive and mixed reality, social networking and file-sharing and tablet technologies.
Christiane Paul explores themes raised by digital artworks, such as viewer interaction, artificial life and intelligence, political and social activism, networks and telepresence, and issues surrounding the collection, presentation and preservation of digital art. She also looks at the impact of digital techniques and media on traditional forms of art, as well as exploring the ways in which internet and software art, digital installation and virtual reality have emerged as recognized artistic practices.
This book is an essential primer for students of art and art history, and for anyone with an interest in the intersection between art and technology.
