The present volume gathers a selection of texts that attempt to contribute to the critical reflection about digital arts and the social-cultural context in which they arise. However, this book is not a systematic study about digital arts, which thoroughly covers their history or their aesthetic and discursive principles. Instead, the five chapters hereby presented work as a sample of the multiple perspectives and approaches from which is possible to address this topic and to claim fresh insights for its further research. The authors of this volume explore some of the challenges and possibilities offered by the intersections between art, technology and society both for the fields of contemporary art and for the articulation of the social-cultural models of the current ‘Digital Age’. Thus, digital arts are approached here not only as an object of study, but also—implicitly or explicitly—as a tool for analyzing our contemporary reality.
