What is New Media? “…New media arts consist of so many practices and every new media artist works differently….I think if there is one thing that all new media artists have in common, it’s their desire to use technologies, no matter how high-tech or low-fi, in interesting and thought provoking ways.” – Braden League, Maryland Institute College of Art, Prague Spring 2014
