About the Author

Edward A. Shanken is Visiting Associate Professor, DXARTS, University of Washington. He is the editor of Roy Ascott's collected writings Telematic Embrace: Visionary Theories of Art, Technology and Consciousness (2003) and the author of Art and Electronic Media (2009).


'Systems theory formed the DNA of much of experimental and technology-oriented art for the last fifty years. This magnificent collection brings together for the first time all essential readings by scientists, artists, art critics and social scientists - from Iannis Xenakis and Nam June Paik to Niklas Luhmann and Bruno Latour. If you want to understand where today's culture came from, you must read this.' Lev Manovich, Professor in Computer Science, City University of New York Graduate Center, and author of The Language of New Media (2001).
