New Media Art primarily uses digital technologies (computers,hardware, software, code, programming, the Internet, the Web, etc...). In New Media Art the digitaltechnologies that we use, such as the computer, are not simply tools but are also environments.Digital culture has developed in the socio-political and economic environments of these systems.Artists have and continue to use these digital systems to make, display, distribute and share their work. These forms of sharing take place online and can include not only the work that is produced butalso it's means of production, in other words, the underlying codes that make New Media Art projectspossible.
