About the book

This book presents a detailed analysis of digital media as it is currently being used by visual artists. It places these works into a theoretical framework that is useful for research in fields such as Media Studies, Studio Art, and Art and Design Education. The primary goal is to emphasize the multidisciplinary aspects of digital visual art, and to propose a field of study that is unique to this type of art. Digital Visual Art Education combines theories of temporality and multilinearity from media studies, and visual culture studies from art education, into a dialogue with social theories such as feminist new materialism and critical race theory. In doing so, the social and cultural aspects of digital visual art is better understood.

This book is for art, design, and media educators interested in surveying digital visual art as it is currently being produced and disseminated, looking to the numerous influences that have brought it into being, and speculating as to where it might lead for future researchers, artists, and designers.

List of Figures


This was written when the COVID-19 global pandemic was raging across the globe, and my current home state of Pennsylvania. The weather this summer was hot and was made hotter due to the requirement that all Pennsylvanians wear a mask in public. For the first time in fifteen years, I will not return to the classroom in the Fall, as I have been awarded a sabbatical to work on this book project. The Fall semester will bring ten-thousand-plus students to this small town in a few weeks. With this influx will come uncertainty and fear, and perhaps the hope that things will return to normal—a normal that did not include face shields, social distancing, and virtual instruction.
