To make performance in the American West is to adopt its cultural idiosyncrasies. The vibrant culture of the New American West is currently defined by the influx of computerized devices. Technological innovation is providing us with new tools, new options, and even whole new ways to stimulate the senses. The presence of technology is allowing artists in the West to define new paradigms of expression: genres are being blurred, definitions are shifting. Technology is a fundamental force in the evolution of art. The pervasive ubiquity of technology is prompting a necessary shift in the way we make and relate to art. The American West, the epicenter of technological innovation, will be at the forefront of this revolution in art-making.
