Digital technology has revolutionized the way we produce and experience art. In Digital Art - here in the 3rd edition - the curator, Christiane Paul, maps the development of digital art, from its emergence in the 1980s until today, and she gives an idea of what the future holds for digital art.
This third edition examines key areas that have recently gained ground. This applies, for example, to interactive public installation, augmentative and mixed reality, social networks 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 issues surrounding the collection, presentation and preservation of digital art.
Paul also looks at the impact of digital techniques and media in traditional art forms, as well as exploring the ways in which internet and software art, digital installation and virtual reality have emerged as recognized artistic practices.
Christiane Paul teaches new media art. She is Associate Curator of New Media Arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
