Considers the meaning of 'art' at the dawn of the Digital Age. Surveying a broad range of contributions from scientists, designers, code-writers, video-games authors and internet artists - disciplines beyond the conventional definition of art - the authors confront our definition of art.
This is the first publication to consider the expanding meaning of 'art' at the dawn of the Digital Age.
