New Media is an art form that is constantly reinventing itself. It combines art, technology, and communication to form media of a universal language. New Media is primarily a designed experience, created thoughtfully and purposefully in order to create an interaction. Collaboration has a large impact on the creation of New Media. This genre of art is dependent upon the reactions of its human users to create an experience.
New media consists of communication and experience-based technologies such as internet websites, DVDs and CD-ROMS, mobile computing, online identities, email, and audio and video to name a few, as well as installations and other experience designs on a large or industrial scale intended to create an interaction.
New Media constantly reinvents its self as a reaction to emerging technologies and possibilities.
