This subject is a critical analysis of the shifts in practice and theory in creative practice as a result of the impact of technology; from photography to the computer. The subject proceeds from the advent of photography, and technological evolutions of the past hundred years, to the destruction of the concept of the "original" as a unique art work; to mass reproduction, and the influence of installation, sound and audio technologies. The culture of interdisciplinary arts arising from the breakdown of traditional art forms is examined to give context to hybrid arts, art as text, and performance - and to study the altered relationship of artist to media, and of artist to audience, at the end of the twentieth century and on into this one.
