Art and the Future. a History/Profecy of the collaboration between Science, Technology and Art

Rear cover notes: “Acclaimed by critics and reviewers, Art and the Future is the definitive analysis of a radical trend in twentieth-century art – away from the studio toward an openness to currents of thought and activity in the outside world and a full-blooded collaboration with science and technology. Douglas Davis documents the history of this movement, from the earliest attempts to depict kinetic movement on canvas – in Cubism and Futurism – to the latest advances in video art and conceptual art, from physicality to a dematerialized art of idea and mind-to-mind communication. He prophesies as well as records, concluding with an attempt to chart the future course of art. In the process he touches upon the very nature of man and his society….”
