New Media Art was born in the liberal development of a global context. New media art is a genre that encompasses artworks created with new media technologies, including digital art, computer graphics, computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art, computer robotics, and art as biotechnology. Different from traditional visual art, it makes a breakthrough in the vehicle of dissemination what’s more it blurs the boundary between art practitioners and consumers and combines them into an organic whole. Art has never been so opposite to life.
