Summary

Broad in scope, this book provides a clear introduction to both the aesthetics and historical precedents of the multi-faceted dialog of which electronic multimedia is the latest incarnation. It tells the story of how technology has always been integrally connected to human expression--and gives users the tools to connect their technological practice to their cultural heritage. Chapter topics explain the foundations of digital culture, Metafora, the language of structure, the communication between individuals and civilization, and the creative interlocutor. For creative people in all of the arts.
