BREAKING FRAME, first published by Rutgers University Press, is a groundbreaking view of how artists and designers dealt with the tremors of techlogy as new industries and mechanical inventions dramatically transformed human life. Artists captured the explosive impact of the Industrial Revolution and new transportation machines in their images of factories spewing smoke, trains crashing, and comic views of people-turned-automatons as they happily walk along in their steam-powered legs and ride precariously in their fanciful flying machines. The provocative introduction new to this Authors Guild-sponsored edition links the book to today s techlogy, art, and design. Reviewers like Yale professor Alan Trachtenberg have called BREAKING FRAME perceptive, lucid, engaging --- a book that becomes more pertinent every day. Filled with illustrations, the book is an engaging study that will appeal to readers with a wide range of interests including history, art, computers, sociology, engineering, robotics, visual culture, and more. Dr. Wosk has published widely on art and techlogy, including her books Women and the Machine: Representations From the Spinning Wheel to the Electronic Age (Johns Hopkins University Press) and Alluring Androids, Robot Women, and Electronic Eves.
