Regular price $62.00

The kinetic century, from Takis to Kentridge

Artists have long been fascinated by the creative possibilities of electricity. This catalog gathers works from 1920 to the present, in video, sound, mechanical sculpture and computer-based art by Mary Ellen Bute, William Kentridge, Christina Kubisch, Zdenek Pešánek, Anna Ridler, Takis, Steina, Woody Vasulka and others.

Serving as the first comprehensive survey of art forms based on electricity and electronics, this volume presents a narrative that traces the evolution from mechanicl to digital.

A civilization that functions entirely on the basis of electricity and electronics is mirrored by an art that uses the technology of its epoch.
