CONTEXT PROVIDERS: Conditions of Meaning in Media Arts
edited by Margot Lovejoy, Christiane Paul, Victoria Vesna

Context Providers explores the ways in which digital art and culture
are challenging and changing the creative process and our ways of
constructing meaning. The authors introduce the concept of artists as
context providers—people who establish networks of information in a
highly collaborative creative process, blurring boundaries between
disciplines. Technological change has affected the function of art,
the role of the artist, and the way artistic productions are shared,
creating a need for flexible information filters as a framework for
establishing meaning and identity. Context Providers considers the
work of media artists today who are directly engaging communities
through collaboration, active dialogue, and challenging creative work.
