I recently wrote an essay about my Landscapes of Absence project that has been published as a chapter in the new book Critical Digital Making in Art Education edited by Aaron D. Knochel, Christine Liao, and Ryan M. Patton.
The book integrates the three fields critical theory, digital art making, and pedagogy, drawing from scholarship and practices of new media, social practice and community-based arts interventions, and arts education pedagogy. With a collection of essays from an international group of authors, the book guides readers through steps artists and art educators use to explore digital media, using new media art making to enable voices and interrupt power structures. The three sections of formation, co-construction, and intervention through critical digital practice, provide a survey of current research in new media art pedagogy and social practice. This collection offers an important survey to new media art and social practice demonstrating the range of ways media arts technology can be used critically in art practice.
The book is published by Peter Lang and can be purchased through the publisher’s website.
