Volume 17: Hi-Tech features ten artists working at the intersection of new ideas in art and technology. Its release follows Volume 16: Lo-Tech, and the two function not as a timeline of emerging technologies in art, but as two poles between which most new media artists find themselves working today.
While the works in Volume 17 illustrate what many traditionally consider to be new media, we present the use of emerging technologies as but one vital element within the discourse of new media art. In our era of planned obsolescence and weekly technological breakthroughs, innovation is the norm. How can we move past novelty and use new technologies to ask questions about contemporary culture? The works in Volume 17 do just that.
