Cuban Virtualities: New Media Art from the Island
A scarcity of resources coupled with the intellectual pursuits of a
highly educated population has dramatically shaped Cuban new media art
made over the past 10 years. The effects of such limited access to
digital technologies and the Internet on the island -- compounded by a
situation of extreme geographic, political, and economic isolation --
has necessitated an array of creative solutions from a generation of
artists born largely during the 1970s and 1980s.
