Any narrative passage or any passage, say, of poetic images is subject to any number of variations, all of which may be interesting and valid in their own right. A page of Rimbaud cut up and rearranged will give you quite new images. Rimbaud images—real Rimbaud images—but new ones.
"I believe that this study will have both immediate impact in its advocacy for more open, interactive, and semantically rich approaches as well as a lasting value for capturing the state of the field at this particular juncture".
Bruce Jenkins on "The Grammar of New Media"
“Our fine arts were developed, their types and uses were established, in times very different from the present, by men whose power of action upon things was insignificant in comparison with ours. But the amazing growth of our techniques, the adaptability and precision they have attained, the ideas and habits they are creating, make it a certainty that profound changes are impending in the ancient craft of the Beautiful. In all the arts there is a physical component which can no longer be considered or treated as it used to be, which cannot remain unaffected by our modern knowledge and power. For the last twenty years neither matter nor space nor time has been what it was from time immemorial. We must expect great innovations to transform the entire technique of the arts, thereby affecting artistic invention itself and perhaps even bringing about an amazing change in our very notion of art.”
Paul Valéry, Pièces sur L’Art, 1931

"In 2007 Nina Wenhart and I founded the Media Art Histories blog, a collaborative platform for the discussion and development of the discourses of Media Art Histories. This platform has facilitated discussions on the blog itself and elsewhere as the content published on the blog is read by other Media Art theorypractitioners and reblogged by other New Media Art platforms such as Rhizome.org and PUBLICCURATING by CONT3XT.NET."
