New Media Art as a creative form is economically viable and institutionally recognized within both the artistic and academic worlds. Therefore, the processes explored in this text will be accessible to a wide variety of audiences. Digital technologies have yet to be critically incorporated within educational systems, but this book will provide a practical approach to practitioners and teachers wishing to do so. Prior publications examining philosophies of digital technology do not address dysfunction as an element of operation, nor do they present technology as being anything less than fully efficient. This text will be the first to integrate the technological discussion with an open acceptance and analysis of dysfunction as an integral element. When using digital technologies, many types of dysfunction can occur, ranging from hardware malfunctions to software errors and human ineptitude. Many new media artworks employ various strategies of dysfunctionality in order to explore issues of power within societies and culture. Robert W.Sweeny examines how digital artists have embraced the concept of the error or glitch as a form for freedom - imperfection or dysfunction can be an integral element of the project. In this book, he offers practical models and ideas for how artists and educators can incorporate digital technologies and integrate discussions of decentralized models of artistic production.
