New Publication: Digital Currents Art in the Electronic Age

Margot Lovejoy's Digital Currents Art in the Electronic Age has
just been released by Routledge and is now available both in the US
and Europe. It surveys the major impact of video and digital
technologies on visual culture and artistic practice and examines the
extraordinary changes taking place in the role of the artist as
social communicator. It recounts the involvement of those artists who
pioneered early use of electronic mediums in the arts, describing the
development of entirely new forms of representation and practice such
as those associated with video and digital installations, net art,
viewer participation, sound works, and virtual, augmented reality.
In this expanded edition, Lovejoy discusses key works and the new
issues they raise in the context of today's major cultural shifts.
