Lunenfeld, Peter. Snap to Grid. A User’s Guide to Digital Arts, Media, and Cultures.

Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 2000.

A broad look at New Media in both its esoteric and more commericial manifestations.

“I claim that this book constitutes a user’s manual for digital arts, media, and cultures, but should admit that it really constitutes a guide to ‘this’ user’s experiences.”

Agrippa plays with temporalities; the past, present, and future implode as an integral part of experiecing the work. That the material is intended to be read once and only once, and then to deteriorate, is in itself the deftest of hyperaesthetic gestures–‘biting into decades’ indeed.”
