Highly successful and critically acclaimed, Art of the Electronic Age surveys the extraordinary artistic experimentation of the past twenty-five years and features work by such artists as Christo, Jenny Holzer, Nam June Paik, and Bill Viola. Frank Popper reveals the trends that have emerged from unprecedented innovations in technology: laser and holographic art; video, computer, and communication art; and installation, demonstration, and performance art. Illustrating his text with superb color reproductions, Popper demonstrates that this work did not emerge out of the blue, but clearly evolved from the art that preceded it. Although artists in the electronic age are experimenting with ways and means undreamed of even fifty years ago, their objective is the same as that of artists since antiquity--to create a shared aesthetic experience.
