Mass Effect: Art and the Internet in the Twenty-First Century
Mass Effect: Art and the Internet in the Twenty-First Century (2015) is one of the first volumes to document and critique the evolution of art engaged with the Internet in the twenty-first century. The anthology brings together contributions including newly commissioned essays, reprints of key texts, image portfolios, and transcribed discussions, debates, and lectures that offer insights and reflections from a wide range of artists, curators, art historians, and writers. Among the topics examined are the use of commercial platforms for art practice, what art means in an age of increasing surveillance, and questions surrounding such recent concepts as “postinternet.”
