The definition of new and emerging technologies constantly shift with time. New media arts appear when contemporary artists choose to use the latest media and technology as a medium of their work.
New media introduces a new way to create and to present, re-defining the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the viewer. The fast development of the internet also changes people’s conception of time and space. In this context, new media arts become ever-changing with complex modes of expression.
