Xpress Reviews-The First Look at New Books

June 24, 2010

This cross-disciplinary survey of contemporary art focuses on current artists who have engaged scientific and technological research at some point in the creation of visual art. Wilson (conceptual and information arts, San Francisco State) brings together diverse artists from around the world who are using (co-opting?) research in fields such as biology, ecology, medical research, physics, geology, robotics, telecommunications, artificial intelligence, information visualization, and body sensing computer interfaces (picture a work of art that alters its form based on the emotional state of the viewer).
