The essays in Context Providers are rich with observations from artists, educators, humanists, scientists, and curators who address the recent histories of digital media and the ways in which media art and culture challenge and reframe ways of constructing meaning through the creative process and people's engagement with it. They are supplemented by notes and references and, when illustrated, are annotated with captions that offer further commentary."--Lynn Hershman Leeson, University of California, Davis "Choice" (1/1/2012 12:00:00 AM)

"With major essays written by a range of experts in this emerging field, Context Providers articulates a seminal language to previously unexplored territories. It explores ethics in the conditions of meaning in ways that are both accessible and provocative."--Lynn Hershman Leeson, University of California, Davis
