Machines, automats, and robots have always exerted a special fascination on artists. Yet computers, digitisation, and the Internet have given this attraction entirely new impulses. Moreover, developments in artificial intelligence and robotics are of critical importance today. The fifth volume of this series provides insights into current research topics and investigates their artistic potential and possible issues. It contains illustrations and a detailed glossary of significant terms, in addition to contributions by Raffaello DAndrea, Andreas Broeckmann, Roland Fischer, Martina Kammermann, Bruno Spoerri, Philipp Theisohn, Mads Pankow, and Roland Wetzel.
The fifth publication in the Edition Digital Culture series provides insights into current research topics and investigates their artistic potential and possible issues, as shown for example in the projects of Daniel Imboden and the !Mediengruppe Bitnik.
