Art of the digital age

"This, the first full-size illustrated survey of digital art, presents the work of over one hundred artists from around the world. Following an introduction that traces the history of digital art, the book goes on to consider all its major genres, from digital imaging, installation and animation to the more nebulous worlds of software and net art. Each chapter illustrates key works by both established and emerging figures, while personal statements from the artists offer revealing insights into their inspirations and methods. A conclusion speculates on what the future might bring for this rapidly changing art form." "With a comprehensive reference section that includes a year-by-year timeline of breakthroughs in digital art, an extensive bibliography, a list of artists' websites and online projects, and a glossary of digital terms, Art of the Digital Age is an essential guide for everyone interested in culture and creativity in the digital world."--Jacket
