Collection organized by Andre Parente and Katia Maciel.
he collection profiles the first results of the research projects carried out by the Image Technology Center, part of the School of Communication at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and the Centre for Advanced Inquiry in the Interactive Arts, University of Wales, Newport College, United Kingdom.
These projects have sought to articulate the theories of the new technologies of the image with the construction of new forms of electronic art. By establishing contemporary ways of thinking the relationship between art, science and technology as transforming agents of the narratives of mankind, the 32 authors have gathered reports about what has happened in topics still controversial, as interactive cinema, multi-user environments, immersive projections and post-biological structures.
