Details

Juxtaposing the work of leading cultural theorists and philosophers of new media, against creative artists' this book attempts to accommodate to these vehicles of content and shows how classical narrative has been giving way to a new, more fragmentary culture of drama.

It repurposes the use of critical tools for discussing the inner design and immersive effects of the new media forms and its social, political and cultural contexts. Alongside a discussion of how these new stories relate to issues of identity and the body, restructured temporal and spatial models and interfaces, the book explores differing creative platforms such as the Internet, Media Installation, Interactive Broadcast, CD-ROM and Expanded Cinema. The artists, themselves exploring innovative solutions, critically examine their own practice, with a special focus on fiction-based forms of interaction.

This unique volume is presented with an accompanying DVD-ROM, featuring extracts from some of the groundbreaking works discussed by leading media theorists from Europe and the USA, including: Annika Blunck, Alex Butterworth, Sean Cubitt, Ske Dinkla, Jon Dovey, Timothy Druckrey, Malcolm Le Grice, Lev Manovich, Peter Weibel, Paul Willemen and John Wyver.

Made in conjunction with the ZKM Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany, this unique addition to the book provides a rich sampler of interactive work and videos by which to explore the experimental territory, where the cinematic and digital arts are converging in new forms of narrative. Carefully cross-referenced with the book this compilation opens a comprehensive overview to a wider audience. The cross-platform DVD-ROM provides up to four Gigabytes of detailed illustration and analysis of the work of artists and interactive filmmakers from around the world at the cutting-edge in creating and critiquing these new hybrid forms of interactive narrative.

Includes: Zoe Beloff, Michael Buckley, Luc Courchesne, Toni Dove, Ken Feingold, Chris Hales, Graham Harwood, George Legrady, Martin Rieser, Jill Scott, Bill Seaman, Jeffrey Shaw, Eku Wand, Grahame Weinbren and Andrea Zapp.
