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.
Today's congregational expectations regarding ministry events and campaigns are viewed through the lens of "excellence" - not only is this an expectation, it is also a requirement if the church intends to maximize those programs in which it has invested precious resources of time and people. A God-given vision for a ministry program, after prayer and vision sharing, begins with planning, and comes to fruition through effective promotion and marketing. In Excellence in Planning and Promotion, Trace Howard has provided churches and their leadership an outstanding resource by reminding readers of the importance of these elements in delivering ministry events and campaigns that make a kingdom difference. The principles of this book are at the same time incredibly simple yet will reap great benefits for church leaders in our day. This book brings helpful and practical insights to the pastor's approach to ministry and event planning that can be utilized in any ministry leadership context.
