Description - New Screen Media: Cinema/Art/Narrative by Martin Rieser
The advent of new media presents a serious challenge to our understanding of visual representation, of narrative and indeed the whole art of the moving image. New media forms are emerging in hypertext, multimedia, computer games, interactive broadcast and screen media. These are constantly redefining the relationship between story and text and between the creators of art and their audiences who are increasingly becoming the co-producers of meaning in a variety of media. This text presents the work of cultural theorists and philosophers of new media, together with the perspectives of artists experimenting with different interactive models critically examining their own practice. The book proposes the use of new critical tools for discussing new media forms, analyzing how the new stories of these media relate to issues of gender, race and identity, and exploring the different methods of artistic platforms like the Internet, media installation, CD-ROM or expanded cinema. The accompanying DVD-ROM provides a sampler of interactive work and videos by which to explore the experimental territory where the cinematic and digital arts converge.
