Reviews

"Thinking Through Digital Media brings readers into close contact with transnational environments, ecological interfaces, and machinic performances. Hudson and Zimmermann combine strengths as media curators and digital theoreticians to analyze over 130 art projects. Positing glocal cyberplace over universal cyberspace, they highlight politically collaborative media performances to foreground the digital explosion of critical micropublics happening across the globe. This expansive book serves as an energetic intellectual platform for transnational environments and locative places." Timothy Murray, Curator, Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art, Cornell University, USA

"Thinking through Digital Media makes a very welcome intervention into the way scholars approach digital media. The field of digital film studies is expanding rapidly. However, few of these works provide a clearly mapped way of understanding this massive body of digital work in relation to existing categories and concepts scholars use to analyze film as aesthetic and ideological objects. This book charts new territory by using emerging new media artists and their work to explore questions that form a fundamental part of film/media studies." Gina Marchetti, University of Hong Kong

"By bringing together examples of installation art, internet art, live multimedia performances, locative media, and digital compositing with the work of international theorists who attempt to conceptualize the phenomenologies of these new media, this book will be an extremely useful resource for students, professors, and laypersons investigating the ever-increasing role that new media play in our society." Jan-Christopher Horak, Director, University of California, Los Angeles, Film and Television Archive, USA
