[ISEA2018] Paper: Tomas Laurenzo — Political New Media Artworks


Keywords:  Politics, New Media Art, Interaction, Installation.

In this paper, using a theoretical framework of political interpretation of new media art and interaction, I describe some political new media artworks that I have created and exhibited. Knowing that all relevant enough cultural phenomena admit a political interpretation and, therefore, carry a political stance, new media art’s relationship with new technologies carries an extensive phenomenological corpus that intersects many areas of knowledge, rendering sensible the need of awareness of some of these political stances.
