"The Record as Artwork: From Futurism to Conceptual Art" investigates a whole area of artistic exploration that has not yet been sufficiently documented. The early 1900's witnessed the arrival of a new generation of artists who were interested in expanding their artistic sources. Frequently, they investigated new scientific and technological developments in their own culture (such as photography, recorded, sound and film) which gave them new media, materials and information to consider and pursue."
