Research has become a critical center of cultural development.  It is important that artists become active in monitoring and shaping frontier areas of research.  This site is devoted to providing resources so artists can learn about important areas of emerging technological and scientific research.  Two papers elaborate this theme in more detail:

- This page created by Stephen Wilson, Professor Conceptual/Information Arts, SFSU  swilson@sfsu.edu  
- More information about the Conceptual / Information Arts program   
- This page is part of a section whose master  is at http://userwww.sfsu.edu/~swilson/emerging/wilson.newtech.html
