A new breed of contemporary artist engages science and technology-not just to adopt the vocabulary .

Years ago, C. P. Snow wrote about the "two cultures" of science and the humanities; these developments may finally help to change the outlook of those who view science and technology as separate from the general culture.

Includes bibliographical references (pages 887-904) and indexes.

Stephen Wilson's Information Arts is a remarkable piece of modern scholarship that offers not only a panorama of artistic . It is a necessary survey of artists exploring the interactions of art, technology and information.

Stephen Wilson's Information Arts is a remarkable piece of modern scholarship that offers not only a panorama of artistic concerns with topical scientific and technological matters but also exceptional insights into the aesthetic options of artists from an author who is an artist himself. Frank Popper, Professor Emeritus, University of Paris. This book guides us through the vitality and plurality of creative forms that emerge when the boundaries of art and technology are erased. The referenced publications are vast and ever intriguing.

Information art, which is also known as informatism or data art, is emerging artforms that are inspired by and principally incorporate data, computer science, information technology, artificial intelligence.

Information art, which is also known as informatism or data art, is emerging artforms that are inspired by and principally incorporate data, computer science, information technology, artificial intelligence, and related data-driven fields. The information revolution has resulted in over-abundant data that are critical in a wide range of areas, from the Internet to healthcare systems.

Stephen Wilson, a professor of conceptual and information arts at San Francisco State University, has taken on the tremendous task of writing an exhaustive survey of contemporary artists who riff off the worlds of science, math, and technology - sometimes with humor, other times.

Stephen Wilson, a professor of conceptual and information arts at San Francisco State University, has taken on the tremendous task of writing an exhaustive survey of contemporary artists who riff off the worlds of science, math, and technology - sometimes with humor, other times with ominous concern. In more than 900 pages, he presents an admirable compendium of work, the majority of which was created within the past seven years. The book's roster reads like a who's who of international scenemakers.

Wilson Stephen Information Arts Intersections of Art Science and Technology.

A new breed of contemporary artist engages science and technology—not just to adopt the vocabulary and gizmos, but to explore and comment on the content, agendas, and possibilities. Indeed, proposes Stephen Wilson, the role of the artist is not only to interpret and to spread scientific knowledge, but to be an active partner in determining the direction of research. Years ago, C. P. Snow wrote about the "two cultures" of science and the humanities; these developments may finally help to change the outlook of those who view science and technology as separate from the general culture. In this rich compendium, Wilson offers the first comprehensive survey of international artists who incorporate concepts and research from mathematics, the physical sciences, biology, kinetics, telecommunications, and experimental digital systems such as artificial intelligence and ubiquitous computing. In addition to visual documentation and statements by the artists, Wilson examines relevant art-theoretical writings and explores emerging scientific and technological research likely to be culturally significant in the future. He also provides lists of resources including organizations, publications, conferences, museums, research centers, and Web sites.
