The dialogue between art and technology: The aesthetics and value of screen based software art. Illustrate your essay with specific examples.


The aim of this essay is to trace the development and impact of software art and to explore the central debates about its value, legitimation, and social function.


This dissertation will offer a critical presentation of software art and the new experiences it offers by challenging the boundaries between the artist and the viewer, and between institutions and collectors. Screen based software art refers to practices that are assisted by computer software programmes and have a screen output. Such practices process human and electronic stimuli and open new, interactive ways of doing and thinking about art.

Future estimations regarding software art in terms of practice (expanded or controlled?), popularity, and critique (incorporated in mainstream art criticism or kept distinct?)

The use of interactive software art allows for new experiences what otherwise would remain
