this chapter talks about themes in digital art. artificial life, body and identity, databases,, data visualization, and mapping, texts and narrarative environments, gaming, tactile media, activism, and hacktivism, technologies of the future, and mobile an dlocative media. through learnign about these, the book goes into describing many many artworks. one of my favirites was actually talked in class for the paper assignment. camille utterback and romy achituv’s text rain, 1999 is amazing. the concept is crazy interesting. the outlines of bodies almost catch the digital letters that fall like rain. if a person stands long enough to capture a bunch of letters, it starts to put these letters together to create words. this piece is very interective, it involves an audience otherwise it would not work.
