Art and Telecommunications: 10 Years on

Gidney, E. (1991). “Art and Telecommunications: 10 Years on.” Leonardo 24(2): 147-152.
The author argues that telecommunications constitutes a new, postindustrial international dimension and that the nature of artists’ work in this medium differs radically from that of most earlier art forms. This paper provides an overview of artists’ work with telecommunications systems and gives a brief history of some significant events of the last 10 years. The creative development of the medium by artists is described, and an emergent new paradigm of interactive work is discussed in terms of cultural theories of communication.
