digital art source
Logan Hill
One of my favorite resources online is Randall Packer and Artmuseum.net's "Multimedia: From Wagner to VR." (http://www.artmuseum.net/w2vr/contents.html). Fortunately, the site places digital arts within the larger context of technological arts. As artists become more comfortable with digital technology, and expand into other uses of tech, whether it be robotics or simple machines,I've found his history to be very useful. Also, I feel very lucky to be a part of a new anthology titled Technicolor:Race and Technology in Everyday Life (NYU Press: 2001), edited by Thuy Linh N.Tu and Alondra Nelson with Alicia Headlam Hines. Nelson is the founder of Afrofuturism.net, a very valuable and provocative list-serv. Tu specializes in Asian American studies. Together, they've assembled a huge range of specific case studies that refute inherited notions of asian american whiz-kids and black or latino technophobes. From essays on detroit techno to asian feminist web zines and lowriders in texas, the essays comprise an excellent and unusual collection. I, of course, am proudly biased.
