Abstract:

  • Constructing an art history of new media in terms of extent historiographical practice is problematized by rapid change, new epistemic structures, and a broad heterogeny of forms. This essay considers analytical strategies that are structurally reflective of new media through Manovich’s principles of new media, Ippolito’s Variable Media Initiative, and Hakim Bey.
