Content

This unit examines contemporary art within a framework of art philosophies, utopian discourses, and radical critiques of technology and society. It reviews pre-industrial convergences of art and technology; looks at nineteenth century developments relating to early photography and reproduction; and explores avant-garde use of twentieth century electronic and photographic technologies, including video, film, holography and computer, as expressive, performative and critical mediums challenging conventions of representation, subjectivity, time, movement and space, while developing new aesthetics and formal languages and problematising notions of creativity, originality and intention. It also investigates ideas that technology frames art and is itself a subject of art.
