SUMMARY

"A vital addition to the literature on art of the later twentieth century, in which Roy Ascott has played central roles as a major pioneer of interactive, telematic art and as an innovative educator. Ascott's visionary philosophy, grounded in science and technology as well as metaphysical thought, has profound implications for the digital era. Edward Shanken is the ideal guide through this material, and his lucid and insightful introductory essay will become the standard source on Ascott's work and the larger history of telematic art."--Linda Dalrymple Henderson, David Bruton, Jr., Centennial Professor in Art History and Distinguished Teaching Professor, University of Texas, Austin"Roy Ascott has unerringly been a step ahead of the cultural shifts of his times. If cybernetics, interactivity, network culture, and telematics have an artistic edge today, it is because Ascott has been there first. This collection, edited and with a brilliant introduction by Edward Shanken, charts the evolution of Ascott's ideas, pedagogy, and artmaking, which continue to be a potent source of ideas for the future of art."--Roger Malina, Executive Editor of "Leonardo"An admirable survey of the telematic arts and of Roy Ascott's extraordinary contributions to this art form. Thoroughly researched, this readable text is a valuable resource for initiating students into the realm of contemporary electronic arts and sciences by bridging the gap between the visual and media arts."--Peter d'Agostino, Professor of Film and Media Arts and Director of the NewTechLab, Temple University"Roy Ascott is a leading artist and writer in the field of art and technology, and a collection of his writings is long overdue.Edward Shanken's introduction addresses many issues relevant to contemporary culture, elucidating historical, social, and theoretical aspects of Ascott's work."--Eduardo Kac, Associate Professor of Art and Technology, School of the Art Institute of ChicagoAscott, Roy is the author of 'Telematic Embrace Visionary Theories of Art, Technology, and Consciousness', published 2007 under ISBN 9780520222946 and ISBN 0520222946.
