Margot Lovejoy (2004) Digital Currents, Art in the Electronic Age
This book is about the connection between art and technology and the cultural and social changes throughout history. It follows different art movements and there development around the world. This chapter refers to the machine age and especially photography and the moving image starting in early 1900s.
It is a comprehensive read and the writer knows her art history.
The images are relevant to the writing and break up the text quite well. The images alone give the reader something to think about as the text can get lengthy; however you don’t feel like you get lost in the text as she uses plain English.
It would be helpful if the writer gave a short explanation about each movement as she wrote about them as it would help the reader. The writer presumes the reader is knowlegable about art history.
