  1. An investigation of artists' engagement with technical systems, tracing art historical lineages that connect works of different periods."Machine art" is neither a movement nor a genre, but encompasses diverse ways in which artists engage with technical systems. In this book, Andreas Broeckmann examines a variety of twentieth- and early twenty-first-century artworks that articulate people's relationships with machines. In the course of his investigation, Broeckmann traces historical lineages that connect art of different periods, looking for continuities that link works from the end of the century to developments in the 1950s and 1960s and to works by avant-garde artists in the 1910s and 1920s. An art historical perspective, he argues, might change our views of recent works that seem to be driven by new media technologies but that in fact continue a century-old artistic exploration.Broeckmann investigates critical aspects of machine aesthetics that characterized machine art until the 1960s and then turns to specific domains of artistic engagement with technology: algorithms and machine autonomy, looking in particular at the work of the Canadian artist David Rokeby; vision and image, and the advent of technical imaging; and the human body, using the work of the Australian artist Stelarc as an entry point to art that couples the machine to the body, mechanically or cybernetically. Finally, Broeckmann argues that systems thinking and ecology have brought about a fundamental shift in the meaning of technology, which has brought with it a rethinking of human subjectivity. He examines a range of artworks, including those by the Japanese artist Seiko Mikami, whose work exemplifies the shift.

  16. An illuminating study of the complex relationship between children and media in the digital age Now, as never before, young people are surrounded by media-thanks to the sophistication and portability of the technology that puts it literally in the palms of their hands. Drawing on data and empirical research that cross many fields and continents, authors Valkenburg and Piotrowski examine the role of media in the lives of children from birth through adolescence, addressing the complex issues of how media affect the young and what adults can do to encourage responsible use in an age of selfies, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. This important study looks at both the sunny and the dark side of media use by today's youth, including why and how their preferences change throughout childhood, whether digital gaming is harmful or helpful, the effects of placing tablets and smartphones in the hands of toddlers, the susceptibility of young people to online advertising, the legitimacy of parental concerns about media multitasking, and more.

  19. In What's that Super Model doing in My Workplace?, author Halinka Panzera explains why now given Globalisation and faltering economies we need to seek leaders with different characteristics. Social and economic change means that business behaviour needs to adapt. A profit-only, homogeneous male-dominated, institutionalised, single-minded approach to business will no longer secure business success in the future. We are already seeing decline in corporate performance among companies that are adhering to older models. A more broad-minded, balanced outlook that incorporates wider societal characteristics and priorities is needed. An organisation needs to develop a wide range of solutions to any given problem. Says Halinka Panzera, "When organisations try to replicate the type of leadership they have had in the past, they don't maximise their problem solving. This 'dinosaur' style has had its day". The Super Model has been created by research insights and provides a new approach for problem solving for CEO's, HR, Management, and new Leaders. Corporate evolution is possible, with insightful, evolving and confident people leading the way and willing to embrace change by contributing diverse thoughts, ideas and perspectives. This book shows you how.
