About this book

Now that humans seem to have arrived at the end of their campaigns of
discovery, conquest and exploitation, the virtual, infinite, digital
spaces are being conquered. It was only a matter of time before the
technical possibilities permitted people to construct parallel worlds in
the digital universe. A 'Second Life' as virtual existence (Avatar) in
the virtual spaces of data exerts a seductive pull on ever more people.
By taking possession of the internet as a creative medium, an entirely
new, globally networked culture of participation has come into being.
Multiple person-computer interfaces far exceed in their complexity and
lack of overview the discussion currently taking place about possible
social, aesthetic, legal and political effects on individuals and
communities. In(visible) engages with the cognitive, social,
technological and aesthetic dimensions of a dataculture which, in the
highly charged dichotomies of private/public, visibility/invisibility,
individual/community, autonomy/control, attempts to mark out new routes
to communicate the practices and strategies of artistic and scientific
engagement.

Best regards,
