We are surrounded by images as never before: on Flickr, Facebook, and YouTube; onthousands of television channels; in digital games and virtual worlds; in media art and science.Without new efforts to visualize complex ideas, structures, and systems, today's informationexplosion would be unmanageable. The digital image represents endless options for manipulation;images seem capable of changing interactively or even autonomously. This volume offers systematicand interdisciplinary reflections on these new image worlds and new analytical approaches to thevisual.

Imagery in the 21st Century examines this revolutionin various fields, with researchers from the natural sciences and the humanities meeting to achievea deeper understanding of the meaning and impact of the image in our time.

Thecontributors explore and discuss new critical terms of multidisciplinary scope, from databaseeconomy to the dramaturgy of hypermedia, from visualizations in neuroscience to the image in bioart. They consider the power of the image in the development of human consciousness, pursue newdefinitions of visual phenomena, and examine new tools for image research and visual analysis.
