Art of the Electronic Age
by Frank Popper
Publisher's Description
"Art has been the subject of more explosive experimentation in the last 20 years than in almost any other period. Not only have most preconceptions about art and the artist been questioned and sometimes overturned; whole new mediums and areas of artisitic activity have been pioneered, especially since the advent of the such technology as the photo copy, video, laser, and personal computer."--the publisher. This invaluable, profusely illustrated book examines the numerous trends that have emerged from these unprecedented innovations through five categories: video art; installation, demonstration, and performance art; laser and holographic art; and computer art. Written by Frank Popper, a well-known specialist in contemporary art, this study demonstrates that the objective of these new artists is to achieve what artists since antiquity have done--to create and communicate an aesthetic experience.
