about

Electronic art offers endless opportunities for reflection and interpretation. Some works are either interactive or entirely autonomous, and the viewer's perception and reaction to them may be challenged by constantly transforming images. Whether the transformations are a product of the appearances or actions of a viewer in an installation space, or a product of a self-contained computer program, is a source of constant fascination. Some viewers may feel strange or unnerved by a work, while others may feel welcoming, humorous, and playful emotions. The art may also provoke a critical response to social, aesthetic, and political aspects of early twenty-first century life. This book approaches electronic art through the teachings of Jacques Lacan, whose return to Freud has exerted a powerful and wide-ranging influence on psychoanalysis and critical theory in the twentieth century.

An Introduction to Electronic Art through the Teaching of Jacques Lacanbrings together New Media works of art and Lacanian psychoanalysis.David Schwarzdraws on his experience with Lacanian psychoanalysis, music, interactive and traditional arts in order to address aspects of the works the viewer may find difficult to understand. Dividing his approach over four thematic chapters -Bodies,Voices,EyesandSignifiers' Schwarz explores the links between works of New Media and psychoanalysis (how we process what we see, hear, touch, imagine, and remember).

This is a fascinating book for New Media artists and critics, museum curators, psychologists, students in the fine arts and those who are interested in digital technology and contemporary culture.

David Schwarzis an Associate Professor of Music Theory in the College of Music at the University of North Texas, USA where he works on the arts and psychoanalysis in modern culture.
