In Snap to Grid, an idiosyncratic guide to the interactive, telematic era, Peter Lunenfeld maps out the trajectories that digital technologies have traced upon our cultural imaginary. His clear-eyed evaluation of new media includes an impassioned discussion - informed by the discourses of technology, aesthetics and cultural theory - of the digital artists, designers and makers who matter most. Snap to grid is a command that instructs the computer to take hand-drawn lines and plot them precisely in Cartesian space. Users regularly disable this function the moment they open an application because the gains in predictability and accuracy are balanced against the losses of ambiguity and expressiveness. Lunenfeld uses snap to grid as a metaphor for how we manipulate and think about the electronic cutltre that enfolds us. In this book he snaps his seduction by the machine to the grid of critical thinking.
