Copyright Information & Copyright Facts | CCC

That’s the key there. You don’t want to copy just to be a hollow echo. You want to copy and put it through the filter of your own creative voice to make something different. That’s okay because I think it means that you’ve resonated with someone. You’ve made a difference in the way that they think about their art and their presentation. That’s a good thing, because we all do borrow from each other and it’s unreasonable to think that the things that you see and experience in your daily life are not going to seep into your own work

Multimedia: From Wagner to Virtual Reality

Multimedia: From Wagner to Virtual Reality

I recommend this book to you with an earnestness that I have seldom felt for any collection of historic texts,“ writes William Gibson in his foreword.

Tracing the fertile series of collaborations between arts and sciences throughout the twentieth century, Randall Packer and Ken Jordan present the often overlooked history behind multimedia―the interfaces, links, and interactivity we all take for granted today. „Many of the papers that had profound impact upon my development―to say nothing of the entire industry―are here,“ raves Donald A. Norman, author of The Invisible Computer. In „an evocative whirlwind tour through 100 years of work“ (Wired), Packer and Jordan bring together an „historically significant“ (Slashdot) collection of the groundbreaking visions of scientists like Vannevar Bush, Douglas Englebart, and Norbert Wiener, and artists like John Cage, Nam June Paik, and William Gibson. Their insightful explanations of the core concepts behind multimedia provide historical context that „reads like a Western civ of modern media“ (Film/Tape World).
