More and more artists make themselves independent from expensive hardware and develop their projects on powerful PCs, whether in music, video, internet or software. This book deals with recent developments of art using digi tal media, and concentrates on the topics software, interactivity, participation and distribution. It evolved from the documentation of the international media art festival transmediale.01 which took place in Berlin in February 2001. The result is a multi-faceted collection of project descriptions, texts, discussions and illustrations relating to the theme Do-lt-Yourself Media, which offer a vibrant presentation of contemporary media culture and of the ceative potentials of digital media.
