The Philosophy of Digital Art

Writing two chapters for a book about the aesthetics of the production of art using digital technologies or displayed in digital media.

This project will fund the completion of a monograph, 'The Philosophy of Digital Art,' a philosophical investigation into the impact of digital technology on the visual arts. This investigation uses technical explanations of the production and presentation of digital image-based artworks to support a complex account of the nature of the digital. Such an account supports further arguments concerning the terms set by digital technology for full artistic appreciation. 'The Philosophy of Digital Art' is aimed at a broad scholarly audience in both the sciences and the humanities. It will provide a conceptual framework for ongoing interdisciplinary debate about the digital transformation of the art world.
