More > express themselves. Yet, it takes time for the art world to integrate new practices and new media. Impatient, the most fervent advocates of digital art have structured themselves into international communities by organizing dedicated events.

The purpose of this book is to study the works of current practices without focusing on their shared use of digital technology, and to demonstrate that digital technology is a medium of contemporary art, but that it is important to consider specificities.< Less
