Online video, Web interfaces, file sharing, mailing lists and social networks are transforming our experience of the world. While the social dimension of these Web-related forms dominates public discourse, their aesthetic impact is largely ignored. In response, Web Aesthetics intervenes in the field of new media studies and art theory, proposing an organic theory of digital media aesthetics.

Italian media theorist Vito Campanelli tracks the proliferation of Web technologies, platforms and software and offers a catalogue of aesthetic strategies to address their profound cultural impact. As Campanelli argues, when the Web is located inside sociocultural practices, processes and expressions, it becomes a powerful agent of aestheticization of life on a global scale.

Vito Campanelli lectures on the theory and technology of mass communication at the University of Naples-L'Orientale. He is a freelance curator of digital culture events and co-founder of MAO -- Media & Arts Office. His essays on media art are regularly published in international journals.

From the Inside Flap:

In een wereld van snel groeiende digitale netwerken zijn in het domein van de mediatheorie, die de invloed van deze cultuurvormen bestudeert, de implicaties van de esthetische filosofie vergaand verwaarloosd. Vito Campanelli verkent de netwerkvormen vanuit de optiek van de esthetica en levert daarmee een open uitnodiging om de inherente beperkingen van het huidige debat over de digitale cultuur te overstijgen.

Het web is het medium dat tussen de nieuwe media en de maatschappij in staat en meer dan enig ander de mondiale verspreiding van ideeën en gedrag stimuleert, esthetische vormen omkadert en vorm geeft aan de hedendaagse cultuur en maatschappij.

Campanelli observeert enkele belangrijke verschijnselen in de huidige tijd, zoals sociale netwerken, peer-to-peernetwerken, de 'remixcultuur', etc., en herleidt die tot hun historische premissen; daarmee legt hij de basis van een organische esthetische theorie van digitale media.
