In this fiercely ambitious study, Meredith Anne Hoy seeks to reestablish the very definitions of digital art and aesthetics in art history. She begins by problematizing the notion of digital aesthetics, tracing the nineteenth- and twentieth-century movements that sought to break art down into its constituent elements, which in many ways predicted and paved the way for our acceptance of digital art. Through a series of case studies, Hoy questions the separation between analog and digital art and finds that while there may be sensual and experiential differences, they fall within the same technological categories. She also discusses computational art, in which the sole act of creation is the building of a self-generating algorithm. The medium isn't the message-what really matters is the degree to which the viewer can sense a creative hand in the art.
Adam, an Australian journalist, has always had a penchant for the unpredictable and the chaotic. It is no wonder then that among the many places he visits, he falls in love with a part of history-a beautiful old town in South India, then called Fort Cochin. It is an offer by his Australian publishing house to visit and research the culture of old Fort Cochin, which whets his fascination to learn more of the town and its people, culture, literary standing, and dialect. The surprise offer paves the way to a journey that will lead Adam to long-forgotten treasures, unspoken stories, life-changing decisions, and long-standing friends. Follow Adam on a nostalgic journey of destiny and discovery. What sort of treasure will Adam find under the floorboards of the old town house in South India-a house built decades ago in the era of Dutch occupancy? Despite the judgment of his very clear-headed friends, and adversity in all shape and form, will Adam fulfill his quest and prove that this was no freak accident after all?
