Artists, scientists, researchers, inventors, theorists


Traditional narratives are being restructured. As a result, people feel a greater need to personally participate in the discovery of values that affect and order their lives, to dissolve the division that separates them from control, freedom... ` Lynn Hershman Lesson

The fields of art & technology, entertainment engineering, media arts and dance & technology are immensely connected via the web. Fantastic print, web publications and 100’s of museums and organizations  support media artists and inventors by providing show space, technical support and monetary support.

One of the best ways to get to know the field of digital art, theory, interactive sculpture, installation is to explore the web sites of those working at the intersections of the arts and technology.

The names and web sites listed below are from artists/inventors who have situated themselves more around physical computing, though you will find links to conceptual artists, installation artists, video artists, virtual artists, dance & technology artists, sound artists, theorists, scientists and researchers who have figured prominently in the field of digital and interactive art installation and invention.

All listings were correct at time of publication but if you type in a link that is dead simply type the key words into your Internet search engine and you will likely find new numerous links to the artists and resources listed.
