Based on diverse artistic and aesthetic experiences, the publication offers possible answers to the way in which image and sound are affected by digital technologies of today. This collection of texts is organized around different types of imagery and sound, spatial forms and forms of memory to be found in the current digital context. The volume approaches the ways in which new technologies have influenced the artistic production, its organization, its spatial representation and its perception, as well as, the complexities involved in the organization of a database or an archive. The present book has attempted to present various layers of theoretical approach on new media, and to highlight a few points of view and possible ways of approaching it.
