Book Table of Contents

"...A rich source of information about the women and works that have made media arts history -- or should. Not only is it a must-read but it is also a must-have..." -- Dene Grigar, American Book Review

...Gendered differences to the dominant debates in this field and critiques of masculine biases are addressed but the book refreshingly focuses on women artists' production , offering overviews of genres, artists' perspectives and issue-based or region-based essays..." -- n.paradoxa

"...many of the artists' papers gathered here stand as frank, revealing, and inspiring expositions of their work, and Judy Malloy is to be congratulated on an important compilation of materials from a most important field...."
-- Sadie Plant, Tekka

"Judy Malloy's anthology Women, Art and Technology is a rare and welcome book. It is a collection of insiders' histories of a world that was only briefly glimpsed and that for the most part remained unrecorded. In the field of new media where obsolescence is the norm, the arrival of this exploration of the continuity of artistic vision and political concerns that have driven women's aesthetic experimentation with technology over the last few decades is a real gift..."
-- Carolyn Guertin, TrAce

"...Weaving the different strains of multimedia creativity, Malloy brings the voices and artifacts of artists in a wide field, including virtual reality, video, interactivity, graphic design, even music and choreography..." -- Book Bytes

...The writings themselves serve to illustrate the breakdown of the barriers between art and technology by their presentation as a combination of technical report writing, artistic sensibility, and visual documentation. I came away from this book with a long list of further reading and websites to visit and a greater understanding of not only the role of the feminine in techno/art but of techno/art itself. A large and comprehensive collection, it serves to illustrate that there are no boundaries to the human creative impulse and that preconceptions, stereotypes or any other human limitations, be they artistic, cultural or societal are there to be challenged by the artist. -- Jayne Fenton Keane, English Studies Forum

"This is a phenomenally important volume." - Umbrella

"...While this book does not claim to be the final, authorative reference on the contribution of women to media-related artwork, the material it does present in more than 500 pages is sufficiently mixed and wide-ranging that most readers will come away from it with a better understanding of the role of female artists in the recent evolution of such diverse fields as video art, environmental art, computer graphics, game design, sound, interactive art, digital music and dance...." -- Ballast Quarterly Review

"....Perhaps most fascinating are the book's multifaceted observations about the symbiotic relationship of media such as modern dance, sound, video, and computer programming.... -- Geary Yelton, Electronic Musician

"...Undoubtedly Women, Art and Technology is a text determined to thread the artists voice through a theme of convergence. Yet all those external forces - be they computer, cameras, videos and all those other weird and wonderful technical tools- are significant in helping this voice produce if not a fresh sound, at least a less gendered one, and the documentation of that effort is perhaps this book's greatest coup..." -- Rita Dimasi, Arts Hub
