Dear CRUMB
those of you who know me will know that I've been working on this book for a long long time.
It is finally out!
There is a link to the Table of Contents below.
As you'll see it includes a mini catalogue for the exhibition The Art Formerly Known As New Media - the exhibition Steve Dietz and I curated in 2005.
I'd welcome your feedback on what has been a laborious but loving archival project.
Please do forward the message to those you think might be interested.
Sarah

Definitive new media arts compendium EUPHORIA & DYSTOPIA released

Banff Centre Press and Riverside Architectural Press, in association with OCAD University and The University of Sunderland announce the release of Euphoria & Dystopia: The Banff New Media Institute Dialogues.  The 1100 page anthology is edited by Sarah Cook and Sara Diamond. Featuring worldwide pioneers, artists and cultural icons, and digital-industry innovators; Euphoria & Dystopia documents the key decade of Canada's Banff New Media Institute, between 1995 and 2005. Attracted by innovative programming set against Banff’s extraordinary mountain landscape, hundreds of international practitioners were brought together to debate the new forms wrought by technology. This volume charts the rise of the emerging field of digital media art and industry, through those discussions. It is essential reading for scholars, developers, and theorists of new media.

A copy of the table of contents is available for download here: http://www.riversidearchitecturalpress.com/current_publications/euphoria_dystopia/sample/EuphoriaDystopia_TOC.pdf<http://www.riversidearchitecturalpress/current_publications/euphoria_dystopia/sample/EuphoriaDystopia_TOC.pdf>

Euphoria & Dystopia contains essays by Sandra Buckley, Steve Dietz, Jean Gagnon, N. Katherine Hayles, Susan Kennard, Eric Kluitenberg, Jeff Lieper and Allucquere Rosanne Stone.

The contents of Euphoria & Dystopia include over 150 original transcripts drawn from thousands of hours of audio material from the annual Interactive Screen event and numerous summits and annual workshops. The book is organized by themes that range from data visualization to the interface of technology and the body to curating to gaming. It includes fully annotated references and biographies of participants, a detailed list of events that took place at Banff between 1995 and 2005. The book also includes commissioned essays from the co-editors and from leading new-media theorists. Included is the catalogue of the exhibition The Art Formerly Known As New Media (2005) and a DVD of HorizonZero, the groundbreaking bilingual electronic journal produced at Banff from 2002 to 2004.

Sara Diamond is the Founding Director of the Banff New Media Institute, and served as Artistic Director of Media & Visual Arts and Director of Research at The Banff Centre. Her work with the BNMI included creating numerous international research partnerships and securing support for emerging new-media businesses. In 2005, she became the President and Vice-Chancellor of OCAD University in Toronto, Canada.

Sarah Cook is a curator and writer based in the United Kingdom. Working as a postdoctoral research fellow at The Banff Centre until 2006, she curated exhibitions for the Walter Phillips Gallery, helped to found the Banff International Curatorial Institute, and participated in summits at the Banff New Media Institute.
