West Hollywood Aesthetics and Politics

Now that Digital Systems Are Thoroughly the New Normal: An Introduction to Media Art Today

Through presentations by four artists, we examine the embedding (or bootstrapping) of the “post digital” into everyday life. Despite its virtues, this embedding clearly has a parasitical effect, which we will discuss. As a tool of business and power, the “new normal” has altered the rhythm of our streets, the objects of daily use, our politics, our financial structure, even our intuitions—certainly of our cultural industries.
