Digital imaging and computer technology have come to permeate our daily experience. From graphic images in bank machines to Hollywood movies awash in high-tech special effects, from advanced scientific visualization to personal digital assistants, the electronic image has changed the way our culture perceives itself and receives its information. A technology that is used throughout culture as a tool for communication, documentation, and creativity has placed itself squarely in the center of our lives. Simply stated, the computer is everywhere, having an impact on nearly everything.
