Art and Electronic Media (Phaidon, 2009) demonstrates the formidable history of artistic uses of electronic media. Over 200 artists and institutions from more than thirty countries are represented. It enables the rich genealogy of art and electronic media to be seen – literally and figuratively – as central to the histories of art and visual culture.
