This new project from ArtMuseum.net (last discussed in the February 25, 2000 Scout Report
) presents the "untold history of multimedia." Currently, two sections of the site are available, with a third (Essays) to be added in September. The Overture section introduces visitors to the primary themes, concepts, and relationships "within the arts and sciences that converge as multimedia." These are offered as six brief, illustrated features. The second section, Pioneers, includes an annotated timeline of artists, scientists, and others who have contributed to the evolution of multimedia. The Essay section, once added in September, will include primary documents from various pioneers in this field. While a bit smaller than many online exhibitions covered in the Scout Report,
this site is well-crafted and illuminates the contributions of numerous figures previously little-known to the general public.
