Featuring worldwide pioneers, cultural icons, and digital-industry innovators, "Euphoria & dystopia" documents the key decade of the Banff New Media Institute, between 1995 and 2005. Attracted by innovative programming set against Banff's extraordinary mountain landscape, hundreds of international practitioners were brought together to debate the new forms wrought by technology. Their discussions, gathered here, celebrate the belief that the creative sector, in collaboration with science and engineering, can invent technologies that work for human betterment and create a more participatory culture. This volume charts the rise of the emerging field of digital media art and industry, and is essential reading for scholars, developers, and theorists of new media.

This publication is a compendium of some of the most visionary thinking about art and technology to have taken place in the last few decades.
Based on the research of the Banff New Media Institute from 1995 to 2005, the book celebrates the belief that the creative and cultural sector, in collaboration with scientists and humanists, have a critical role to play in developing participatory technologies that work toward human betterment. Included with the book, is a DVD based on the electronic journal produced at Banff—HorizonZero, documenting BNMI events and co-productions.

Material gehigarria: DVD. "Horizon zero" online argitalpena.
The Banff New Media Institute produced "HorizonZero", a comprehensive online publication, commissioning space, and gallery, with funding from Heritage Canada's Canadian Culture Online program as part of the Gateway. Throughout its three-year lifespan, the "HorizonZero" project dedicated itself to opening the developing field of new media to the larger realm of Canadian culture by building new audiences, engaging cultural and ethnic diversity, and fostering dialogues between new-media practitioners and their audiences. [...]
Started in early 2002, the project concluded its live production cycle in December 2004. There were 18 thematic issues in total; monthly updates were launched on a regular basis between August 2002 and December 2004. Dual websites (a highbroadband, media-rich Flash site and an accessible text-based site) were published in Canada's two official languages, French and English.
