Interactive Experience in the Digital Age: Evaluating New Art Practice

edited by Linda Candy and Sam Ferguson

Never has there been a greater need to explore the boundary between the digital arts and interactive experience design. Artists need to understand the new challenges that they face, HCI practitioners need to appreciate the distinctiveness of the digital arts, and the increasing number of researcher-practitioners whose work cuts across both fields must be able to navigate their way through unchartered interdisciplinary waters. The breadth of this book, both in terms of the artistic forms that it covers, but also the issues it tackles – and especially its focus on the critical challenge of evaluation – offers a major contribution to this movement. .Steve Benford 2014

Explorations in Art and Technology

 “This is the best update on the continuing dance between artists and technologists. It should inspire and motivate more collaborative experiences” Ben Shneiderman

“A thought-provoking over view of art and technology. You don’t have to be a techno-freak to be intrigued.You just have to be interested in human beings” Margaret Boden

“At the beginning of the 21st Century, this book offers both a review and a fresh start. It provides both example of art works created with computers, and the reflections of the artists who have engaged in these interactions with technology”  Nigel Cross
