What People are saying about this

Sean Cubitt
"A leading voice in a global, web-weaned generation, Anna Munster's eagerly anticipated storm of information aesthetics and dirty pixels will pass hand to hand in the digital arts movement."
Andrew Murphie
"Anna Munster's Materializing New Media is as daring, as erudite and as precise as such an ambitious book needs to be . . . It moves through a dazzling series of accounts of contemporary new media art works, and towards a sensitive analysis of the contemporary political effects of global information technologies. The result is a rich understanding of the new relation of digitality and matter . . . it is the first book to provide a framework—a refreshingly open framework—from which to understand the work of material work of new media from within."
