Today we are beginning to notice that the new media are not just mechanical gimmicks for creating worlds of illusion, but new languages with new and unique powers of expression.
–Marshall McLuhan

The 21st century marks a new era in the history of art, one whose significance can be compared only to the arrival of film in the 19th century. Developments in artificial intelligence and human-interactive technologies have given rise to new dilemmas that must be addressed by art as the ever-vocal advocate of the human condition. This strange and exuberant time has created a new breed of artists who use technology as a means of communication. It is a new language that permits artists to create a new connection between themselves and their viewers. No longer will the work of art will remain a static phenomenon; instead, it is becoming a living entity that, with the artist guidance, can communicate with viewers on a personal level.

Through a language alien to traditional art forms, this new art continues the artistic quest to reunite subjective and objective reality by reinventing the self.
