Editorial Reviews


"A seminal history for any artist who is currently working with technology." Jill Scott , Media Artist and Professor for Art and Science Research in the Institute of Cultural Studies in Art, Media, and Design, Zurich University of the Arts

"As one researches aspects of the world, often particular periods of history that we thought we knew find themselves in need of rewriting. Jones has provided us with a comprehensive study of a rich period of technological and artistic change that to a large degree has remained hidden. In this light Synthetics is a deeply important and comprehensive book, for it gently asks us to re-cast the history of this period with newly articulated detail." Bill Seaman , Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies, Duke University

"Synthetics offers an unprecedented insight into the convergence of art and technology in Australia in the immediate postwar era. At once surprising and revealing, Stephen Jones's book charts the collaborative art-making processes of these hitherto undiscovered Antipodean 'hunters and gathers of the new.'" Ross Harley , Professor and Head, School of Media Arts, College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales, Sydney
