Aesthetics and New Media

(p.175) 3.4 Aesthetics and New Media

Johanna Drucker

University of Chicago Press

This chapter suggests that discussion of new media should be considered in its relation to aesthetics. This would bring digital art into dialogue with other artistic practices that are part of a contemporary landscape of imaginative and creative work and would put the fate of aesthetics in an era of new media under consideration. This chapter also criticizes the notion of the so-called hybrid aesthetics and generative aesthetics as problematic and proposes a speculative aesthetics that is grounded in the language of computational method.

Keywords:   new media, aesthetics, digital art, artistic practices, creative work, speculative aesthetics, computational method
