Development of new media: the case study of Ed Atkins

  1. Discuss the development of new media in relation to your chosen examples. You may want to consider one or more of the following questions:
  • Can you imagine why the artist(s) chose to work in new media?
  • How do the presentation and technological underpinnings of the works relate to the artist’s thematic concerns?
  • Do the works lend themselves to presentation in a gallery or museum? If not, how are they presented and to which public(s)?
  • Do the works in any way challenge the properties or qualities of the technology they employ?
  • Do the works comment on other uses to which the same technology and/or mode of display are put in other (non-art) contexts?

These questions are intended only as helpful pointers. You should not feel obliged to tackle all of them.
