Editorial Reviews


"Nicholas Negroponte on John Maeda: 'John Maeda deconstructs the digital world with the earned authority of an M.I.T.-trained computer scientist and a card-carrying artist. Being ambidextrous with Eastern and Western cultures, he can see things most of us overlook. The result is a humour and expression that brings out the best in computers and art'"

Red Burns is chair of the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University and the recipient of the 2002 Chrysler Design Award.
