About this item
What is the story of digital art? Tracing the medium from its roots in constructivist and futurist fantasies to today's complex virtual realities, Nicholas Lambert has written the first rigorous art historical account of digital art's evolution since 1945. Unlike so many artistic developments, digital art has never belonged to a single and canonical movement; its genesis reflects a multiplicity of philosophical viewpoints and technological discoveries. The book chronicles the major artists, exhibitions and institutions key to the medium's story, and explores the revolutionary impact of algorithms, networked mobile devices, immateriality and artificial intelligence on recent art production. This is the defining history of digital art.
