Description

Culture, Technology and Creativity in the Late Twentieth Century addresses various aspects of how technology and creativity interrelate in the arts and culture of the late Twentieth Century. This is an anthology which combines a general introduction with a set of case studies commissioned from a range of international critics. The studies illuminate a rapidly developing area of culture which has often been characterised by sweeping generalizations but seldom analysed in detail.

Reviews

'... a brave and enterprising endeavour.'
John Wischmeyer, Independent Media
'Most contributors include substantial descriptions of the technologies and practices they refer to and, as there are very few texts available in this area, Hayward's is an excellent introduction to what he describes as an analytical project in the process of emergence.'
Ann Marie Chandler, Media Information Australia
