Abstract:

  • In the face of continuous leaps in technology, male digital artists seem especially prone to such deviant conditions as pixel envy, hard drive inadequacy, the CPU territorial imperative, premature exhibitionism, and recidivist high tech onanism. While the truly avant-garde induces tremors in the established order, the techno-garde impostor brandishing the cuffing edge substitutes intimidation and a misdirected adolescent desire to shock, and is unwittingly at the service of a rear-garde, uncritical modernist faith in the progress of technology inherited from the rationalist program of the enlightenment.
