Editorial Reviews

Review

“Media art is not just an art form that utilizes media technology, as people tend to think. This excellent volume, written by pioneers in the field, explores its real meanings to us and our society with ample examples and theoretical insight. Such a book has been long needed.”
(Machiko Kusahara, Waseda University, Tokyo)

“For decades, it seems, there has been debate about the technological basis of so-called new media art. In this enlightening volume, the editors have enlisted a comprehensive body of opinion by theorists and practitioners to present one complex answer—it’s the context, stupid.”
(Steve Dietz, founder and artistic director at Northern Lights, an media-oriented art agency)

“With major essays written by a range of experts in this emerging field, Context Providers articulates a seminal language to previously unexplored territories. It explores ethics in the conditions of meaning in ways that are both accessible and provocative.”—Lynn Hershman Leeson, University of California, Davis


(Lynn Hershman Leeson, University of California, Davis)

The essays in Context Providers are rich with observations from artists, educators, humanists, scientists, and curators who address the recent histories of digital media and the ways in which media art and culture challenge and reframe ways of constructing meaning through the creative process and people’s engagement with it. They are supplemented by notes and references and, when illustrated, are annotated with captions that offer further commentary.”
(Choice 2012-01-01)
