Images and new technologies


Cyberarts or cyberart refers to the class of art produced with the help of computer software and hardware; often with an interactive or multimedia aspect. It can also refer to art produced through a process, any one of whose steps was influenced by such software or hardware.

This term is vague and relatively new; nevertheless much of the work described by this term is rarely described any other way. For instance, a common type of cyberart which is produced programmatically by applying a set of design rules to a natural or preexisting process. A program could produce a few million such ‘works of art’ in a minute.

CyberARTS is also a school program in Toronto that allows students to use digital media as a means to learn school material.


Video art

Video art is a type of art which relies on moving pictures and comprises video and/or audio data. (It should not however be confused with television production or experimental film.) Video art came into existence during the late 1960s and early 1970s as the new technology became available outside corporate broadcasting and is still widely practiced and has given rise to the widespread use of video installations. Video art can take many forms: recordings that are broadcast, viewed in galleries or other venues, or distributed as video tapes or DVD discs; sculptural installations, which may incorporate one or more television sets or video monitors, displaying ‘live’ or recorded images and sound; and performances in which video representations are included.[1]

Bill Viola (born January 25, 1951) is a contemporary video artist. He is considered a leading figure in the generation of artists whose artistic expression depends upon electronic, sound, and image technology in New Media.[1] His works focus on the ideas behind fundamental human experiences such as birth, death and aspects of consciousness.[2]
