Emerging Technologies and the Arts

by Stephen Wilson, Art Dept, SFSU http://userwww.sfsu.edu/~swilson

Research is radically shaping our culture. Everything from the gadgets of everyday life to basic concepts of self, community, and the universe are being changed. The arts can fill a crucial role as an independent zone for research where values other than marketability and academic disciplinary acceptance can set research agendas. Here are links to web pages that provide introductions to emerging technologies.
