Abstract (English)

"Featuring worldwide pioneers, cultural icons, and digital-industry innovators, Euphoria & Dystopia documents the key decade of the Banff New Media Institute, between 1995 and 2005. Attracted by innovative programming set against Banff's extraordinary mountain landscape, hundreds of international practitioners were brought together to debate the new forms wrought by technology. Their discussions gathered here, celebrate the belief that the creative sector, in collaboration with science and engineering, can invent technologies that work for human betterment and create a more participatory culture. This volume charts the rise of the emerging field of digital media art and industry, and is essential reading for scholars, developers and theorists of new media. " -- p. [4] of cover.
