Digital technology has revolutionized the way we produce and experience art today. Not only have traditional forms of art such as printing, painting, photography and sculpture been transformed by digital techniques and media, but entirely new forms such as net art, software art, digital installation and virtual reality have emerged as recognized artistic practices, collected by major museums, institutions and private collectors the world over. Christiane Paul surveys the developments in digital art from its appearance in the 1980s up to the present day, and looks ahead to what that future may hold. This new edition investigates the emergence and impact of mobile and locative (site-specific) media, social networks and the next generation of virtual worlds, bringing the subject right up to date, with c.40 additional illustrations of the most groundbreaking works in these exciting new areas.
