Electronic Culture. Technology and Visual Representation

The technology of representation and imaging has undergone vast changes. Imaging technologies can now create representations of high-tech warfare, manifest virtual reality, or visualize an atom. This series of essays by philosophers, media theorists, and cultural critics carefully examines these advances and grants special attention to the digital explosion of the 90s. Essays cover everything from the limits of photographic representation in the time of digital imaging to a filmmaker’s thoughts on immersive environments. This is not light reading and many essays have an academic tone, but it’s an important work for those interested in new media and technologies.
