. Our dictionary is primarily aimed to the community of digital art, from artists to fans and from corporations to associations. Its insistence on external references makes it a choice tool for research and in depth studies... without forgetting enjoyment. It's written mostly by Pierre Berger, retired computer journalist, author of Roxame (website, see the User handbook (work in progress) software and presently art critic.

. It presents as well the artists (more than 2000 by 2014) and their works as the concepts, the history and the geography of digital art. See a summary of the core data and concepts.

. It is permanently updated and enriched, with the risk of some "work in progress" here and there. Your remarks will always be welcome. Just Contact us.
