Unsitely Aesthetics: Uncertain Practices in Contemporary Art
Edited and with text by Maria Miranda.
Unsitely Aesthetics seeks to address the unconventional ways in which contemporary art is made and engaged with across the vastly expanded networks of new media culture, arguing--counterintuitively--that network culture not only embodies its own version of “situatedness” but can also lead to the creation of a more democratic art, with the Internet acting as a far broader public space than the traditional site-specificity of old, a space in which artists can encounter and perhaps even engender new publics for their work. The book aims to theorize current dynamics in media and sound art practice, and includes interviews and conversations with Barbara Campbell, Linda Carroli, Hugh Davies, Bec Dean, Renate Ferro, John Craig Freeman, Jo-Anne Green, Teri Hoskin, Lucas Ihlein, Yao Jui-Chung, kanarinka (a.k.a. Catherine D’Ignazio), Scott Kildall, Deborah Kelly, Natalie Loveless, Michael Takeo Magruder, Timothy Conway Murray, Norie Neumark, Victoria Scott, Brooke Singer, Igor ?tromajer, Helen Thorington and Darren Tofts.
