Product description

Review

'Every art student enrolled in a Digital 101 course should read this book. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers.' - CHOICE

Winner of the American Society for Aesthetics Outstanding Monograph Prize, 2010

‘In this groundbreaking book, Dominic McIver Lopes offers a rigorously argued, tightly formulated and highly original account of computer art. Rich in examples and brimming with insights, it will provide everyone interested in computer art with a deeper understanding and appreciation of this fascinating art form.’ - Berys Gaut, University of St. Andrews, UK

‘This book argues that computers provide a new medium for art, rather than simply being a new vehicle for displaying art. This raises a host of intriguing questions, forcing us to think again about what we thought we knew about art. Lopes is the ideal guide; being one of our leading philosophers of art, and also completely at home in the world of computing. This is a very good book which considers genuinely interesting issues in an accessible and enlightening way.’ – Derek Matravers, The Open University, UK

Dominic McIver Lopes is Associate Dean in the Faculty of Arts and Distinguished University Scholar and Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia.
