Format: Paperback
This review is from: Digital Art (World of Art Paperback)

a very good book printed by Thames and Hudson, written by Chritianne Paul published in 2008. 256 pages crammed full of images, quality concise writing , a brieh historical overview, listed artist/online orgs,select bibliography plus further reading make this modestly sized book (8 x 6") an excellent read.

along with my copy of the 2000 edition of "New Media in Art" (World of Art) by Michael Rush, "Digital Art" impresses with a detailed overview of contemporary digital practice for artists across the world that include web based projects,installation video art, virtual art, data, activist + genetic art amongst other digital artforms.

but as hinted already - due to the size of book - the printed text is very small + fairly faint (a bolder font would have a world of difference) so beware - my eyes arent that bad (yet) that i should struggle to read textbook generally, but i did so with "Digtal Art" unless in bright daylight, or a magnifying glass might be required. seriously. in this kimble reader day and age - this is a shame but does not detract from an excellent book on an exciting + dynamic hi-tech visual/intellectual world. the detailed further reading + recommended online links in particular, make this book invaluable for digital art practioners + culture vultures alike.

strongly recommended overall.

Format: Paperback
This book gives a very good insight on the story of Digital Art, by categorizing the types of art and referring to installations and performances of some artists, relating them to each other. However, if you are looking for a book with extensive information about individual authors, this is not for you.

HASH(0x91ce47c8) out of 5 stars Accessible writing supported by generous examples 1 Nov. 2009
By J. Toolin - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book provides a comprehensive overview of digital art, from the manipulation of 2-D imagery to interactive new media installation. As well, it contextualizes contemporary digital practice within the history of technological and conceptual art. It provides the newcomer with clear examples of the range of cultural practices in the digital age, and clarifies the sometimes blurred differences between 'technology as tool,' and 'technology as medium.'

HASH(0x91ce481c) out of 5 stars GOOD SURVEY IN DIGITAL ART AREA 19 Feb. 2013
By Cpoco - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

1. very accessible language and writing; minimal jargon or mannerism
2. systematic pedagogy; good for quick reference
3. analytic and structural; good job avoiding conscious stream
4. considerable amount of illustrations; essential for an art book


1. lack in-depth analysis; just quick surveys of history and concepts
2. limited sources and aspects; mostly western arts
HASH(0x8fae68d0) out of 5 stars like it-- but it's almost outdated. 24 Dec. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought for class. Good book for looking into 90's or 2000's new media artists. Feels outdated now, but it's a good start.

HASH(0x8fe03204) out of 5 stars Out of touch 18 Jan. 2013
By GMS - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is out of touch and out of date. SO much has happened since this book came out that its no longer relevant. In addition it doesn't mention the parralel efforts happening in the corporate world which independent movements at least in the digital age are more responsive that original. Terrible book.
