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.
Based on a true story, Malliga Nagar is an adaptation of the compelling drama that unfolds when two women and a young man encounter the power of the supernatural in a small town in Southern India. Set in a laid back town at the base of a rugged charnockite hill near Chennai, the story alternates between the wars waged within the deceived hearts of Kala, Aandaal and Manimaran and vivid imagery of supernatural battles fought in the unseen realm for their souls.
