technology / theme
Of course, all art, by definition, is technological: it is artifice. But some art chooses to engage the very terms of this technology -- not the processes; this is not a matter of self-reflexivity. Here, technology refers to the means, and the shift in means, by which art is realized. Or, for that matter, life itself.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
