Publications conceived and edited by Jeffrey Shaw



iCinema digital arts edition
Editors: Dennis Del Favero, Ursula Frohne, Anna Munster, Jeffrey Shaw

The Digital Arts Edition (DAE) publication, formerly published by the ZKM, in Karlsruhe Germany, is now to be jointly published by the iCinema Centre for Interactive Cinema Research, UNSW, Sydney, ACMI, Melbourne, ZKM, Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, the International University Bremen, Bremen (IUB).

In support of its strengthening as an academic organ of research in new media and with a view to widening its influence among practitioners in the field, the joint publishers have established an editorial board to review submissions for inclusion in selected issues. Until now each issue of the DAE has focused upon a specific theme and contributions have been invited from recognised artists and writers in the field. The establishment of an editorial board heralds a more open, if perhaps more competitive approach to the content published. The opening up of opportunities for publication to a wider range of artists and writers in the field will be offset by a more challenging critique of their contributions prior to inclusion.

The first new title in the series will be published in 2004 under the title of Un_imaginable. This issue will be complemented by an international conference to be held at International University Bremen, Bremen and at the University of New South Wales, Sydney.


"Future Cinema. The Cinematic Imaginary after Film"
Eds. Shaw, Jeffrey and Weibel, Peter, ZKM Karlsruhe and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Mass., Cambridge Mass./London: MIT Press, 2003

The "Future Cinema" exhibition offered the context for bringing together for the first time a large number of highly significant cinematic installation, multimedia and net based works that have been produced by both young and established international artists working in this field over the last ten years.


ZKM digital arts edition
CD-ROM and DVD-ROM series, 1998-2003

The "digital arts edition" was launched as a CD-ROM and DVD-ROM platform to present stand alone interactive works which have been produced at the ZKM Institute for Visual Media. This series encompasses original art works by individual artists, as well as thematic productions such as William Forsythe' "Improvisation Technologies", which has been singled out as a milestone in the digital representation of a dancer's theory and practice.

    artintact - Artists' Interactive CD-ROMagazine
    CD-ROM series, 1994-1999

    Launched in 1994 when the CD-ROM first emerged as a mass medium for interactive entertainment, the intention was to establish this technology as a viable platform for qualitative interactive art works. Through its residence program, the ZKM Institute for Visual Media invited media artists to create original works for this publication. Between 1994 and 1999 five editions of "artintact" were produced, presenting a total of fifteen works by the internationally renowned media artists. Each "artintact" CD-ROM was embedded inside a scholarly book where invited writers could reflect on the artists' works and the nature of the medium itself.

    "Hardware Software Artware. Confluence of Art and Technology"
    Art Practice at the ZKM-Institute for Visual Media 1992-1997
    Book with CD-ROM, Karlsruhe, 1997

    "Hardware Software Artware" is a comprehensive guide for the artistic deployment of multimedia. The writers examine media concepts, projects and artworks by analysing work produced at the ZKM Institute for Visual Media. They discuss the relationship between artists and programmers, and the developments undergone by media technologies at the Institute from 1992 up till 1997. The book opens up a wholly new approach to the deployment of digital media in the context of art production and research, and illustrates the fascination emanating from a preoccupation with media technologies.
