This illustrated presentation will give an overview of the history of the
digital arts from their origins in the analogue kinetics and Jazz/Poetry
performances of the 1950's to current practice. Key themes like Artificial
Intelligence, Artificial Life/Emergence, Computational and Generative,
Interaction, Convergence, Communication and Networking will be identified
and discussed. In particular the speaker will revisit predictions he made in
the late 1980's when he suggested that any new media need a minimum 40 year
gestation period which he suggests is now coming to term. He will illustrate
this hypothesis by using current web2 manifestations as examples of digital
media emerging in their own right in contrast to our previous metaphorical
adaptations.
