At a Distance : Precursors to Art and Activism on the Internet (Leonardo Books) артикул 1861a.

Book DescriptionNetworked collaborations of artists did not begin on the Internet In this multidisciplinary look at the practice of art that takes place across a distance -- geographical, temporal, or emotional -- theorists and practitioners examine theways that art, activism, and media fundamentally reconfigured each other in experimental оважх networked projects of the 1970s and 1980s By providing a context for this work -- showing that it was shaped by varying mixes of social relations, cultural strategies, and political and aesthetic concerns -- At a Distance effectively refutes the widely accepted idea that networked art is technologically determined Doing so, it provides the historical grounding needed for a more complete understanding of today's practices of Internet art and activism and suggests the possibilities inherent in networked practice At a Distance traces the history and theory of such experimental art projects as Mail Art, sound and radio art, telematic art, assemblings, and Fluxus Although the projects differed, a conceptual questioning of the "art object," combined with a political undermining of dominant art institutional practices, animated most distance art After a section that sets this work in historical and critical perspective, the book presents artists and others involved in this art "re-viewing" their work -- including experiments in "mini-FM," telerobotics, networked psychoanalysis, and interactive book construction Finally, the book recasts the history of networks from the perspectives of politics, aesthetics, economics, and cross-cultural analysis.  2005 г 496 стр ISBN 0262033283.

Shaping Medieval Landscapes: Settlement, Society, Environment артикул 1870a.

Book DescriptionPublished here with a new cover and corrections, this book from 2003 has already become a classic text in English landscape history To explain the rich, complex patterns in the English landscape today, we have to understand the fundamental variations in the medieval countryside Some regions had large villages with extensive овазл open fields; others had scattered hamlets and less communal forms of agriculture These differences are still with us - in the shape of fields, the form of settlement, and the character of hedges and woods Archaeologists, historians and geographers have long argued about when, why and how these variations developed In this radical and important book, Tom Williamson shows how subtle differences in soils and climate shaped not only the diverse landscapes of medieval England, but the very structure of the societies that occupied them Environmental factors were the ones which really mattered in shaping the medieval countryside.  2004 г 214 стр ISBN 0954557581.
