Digital Arts presents an introduction to new media art through key debates and theories. The volume begins with the historical contexts of the digital arts, discusses contemporary forms, and concludes with current and future trends in distribution and archival processes. Considering the imperative of artists to adopt new technologies, the chapters of the book progressively present a study of the impact of the digital on art, as well as the exhibition, distribution and archiving of artworks. Alongside case studies that illustrate contemporary research in the fields of digital arts, reflections and questions provide opportunities for readers to explore relevant terms, theories and examples. Consistent with the other volumes in the New Media series, a bullet-point summary and a further reading section enhance the introductory focus of each chapter.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Digital Art tendencies and terms, both contemporary and historical, along with artists' innovations, both visionary and practical, are brought together in this immensely readable and well structured study of those arts of our time that have grown from the digital seeds planted in the previous century. All the branches are there, and many of the fruits they have borne, harvested with critical consideration and presented with scholarly insight. * Roy Ascott, President of the Planetary Collegium, Plymouth University, UK, and DeTao Master of Technoetic Arts, DTMA, Shanghai *
This is a good all round text book that covers digital arts in a comprehensive way. It is current and accessible. * Nicola Curtis, Plymouth College of Art, UK *
