Abstract (English)

Dompierre discusses the work of six Canadian and international artists exploring the effects of advanced technology on our living environment. Examining Daguerre's dioramas and the theories of Darwin and McLuhan, Marchessault makes the case for a view of nature that is not wholly culturally determined. Conley analyses Baudrillard's and Virilio's views on technology and pleads for the necessary existence of physical and mental space alongside digital "non-places". Biographical notes on artists and authors. Circa 50 bibl. ref.
