With digital technology have come new art forms, broadly called information arts. But if information is something we can learn from, something that shapes us, then all art has always been informational.
This explains how we can come away from certain works of art feeling that we've learned something, even if art doesn't inform us in the way that Wikipedia articles and the news do.
In this seminar, I’ll conceptualize art as information and connect this with document theory, sharing some of my prior research and pointing to inroads for future work.
