MIT Press and Leonardo/ISAST announce publication of
Women, Art, and Technology
Edited by Judy Malloy

Although women have been at the forefront of art and technology creation, no source has adequately documented their core contributions to the field. Women, Art, and Technology, which originated in a Leonardo project of the same name, is a compendium of the work of women artists who have played a central role in the development of new media practice.

The book features overviews of the history and foundations of the field by critic/curator Patric Prince; critic Margaret Morse; artist/educator Sheila Pinkel; artist/networker Anna Couey; and Kathy Brew, artist and former director of the new media initiative ThunderGulch. The foreword was written by Patricia Bentson, managing editor of the Leonardo Music Journal.

Artist contributors include computer graphics artists Rebecca Allen, Donna Cox, and Diane Fenster; video artists Dara Birnbaum, Joan Jonas, Valerie Soe, and Steina Vasulka; composers Cécile Le Prado, Pauline Oliveros, and Pamela Z; interactive artists Jennifer Hall and Blyth Hazen, Agnes Hegedüs, Lynn Hershman, Nancy Paterson, and Sonya Rapoport; virtual reality artists Char Davies and Brenda Laurel; net artists Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss, and Sandy Stone; and choreographer Dawn Stoppiello. Critics include Jaishree Odin, Simone Osthoff, and Zoë Sofia.

Editor Judy Malloy is an electronic fiction and Internet pioneer and editor of the electronic publication NYFA Current (formerly Arts Wire Current).
