Media aesthetics is to understand new media developments historically, and to explore the roles of new media in a globally networked society. We examine the social, political and economical influences of new technologies in creativity, industry and culture based on our interdisciplinary perspectives, the convergence of art and technology. We can approach new media not only with aesthetic issues of philosophy of art, but also with multilateral aspects of our culture and society. Here aesthetics would work as a considerable method to relate our current problems and responses on them, and be expanded as a linkage between our metaphysical thoughts and real world.
