Abstract:


    This panel addresses the collapsing border between critical thinking about the arts and the demands for a serious consideration of art using the computer. Increasingly, the maturation of interactive and virtual environments is perceived as an important dimension of artistic expression. The convergence of interactivity, the development of high-speed broadband communication links, and the growing use of interactivity in the production of art points to the necessity for a reconsideration of the role of the artist, a refocusing of the discourses of critical thought, and a redefinition of the idea of aesthetic experience.
