A new breed of contemporary artist engages science and techlogy -- t just to adopt the vocabulary and gizmos, but to explore and comment on the content, agendas, and possibilities. Indeed, proposes Stephen Wilson, the role of the artist is t only to interpret and to spread scientific kwledge, but to be an active partner in determining the direction of research. Years ago, C. P. Sw wrote about the two cultures of science and the humanities; these developments may finally help to change the outlook of those who view science and techlogy as separate from the general culture. In this rich compendium, Wilson offers the first comprehensive survey of international artists who incorporate concepts and research from mathematics, the physical sciences, biology, kinetics, telecommunications, and experimental digital systems such as artificial intelligence and ubiquitous computing. In addition to visual documentation and statements by the artists, Wilson examines relevant art-theoretical writings and explores emerging scientific and techlogical research likely to be culturally significant in the future. He also provides lists of resources including organizations, publications, conferences, museums, research centers, and Web sites.
