Blurring boundaries between many disciplines, Context Providers supplies a context and a rationale for discussing how technological change has affected the function of art, the role of the artist, and the way artistic productions are disseminated. It also explores how technologically networked environments increase the need for flexible information filters as a framework for establishing meaning. Moreover, Context Providers considers the work of media artists who are directly engaging the scientific community through collaboration and active dialogue. Context Providers will appeal to art historians, theorists and curators, as well as art administrators, grant providers and those studying both practice and theory in media arts.
