from wikipaedia Popper (born 1918[1]) is a historian of art and technology and Professor Emeritus of Aesthetics and the Science of Art at the University of Paris VIII. He has been decorated with the medal of the Légion d'honneur by the French Government.[2] He is author of the books:Origins and Development of Kinetic ArtArt, Action, and ParticipationArt of the Electronic Age[3] and From Technological to Virtual Art.

Popper documents the historical record of the relationship between technology and participatory forms of art, especially between the late 1960s and the early 1990s.[4] Sharing his focus on art and technology are Jack Burnham (Beyond Modern Sculpture 1968) and Gene Youngblood (Expanded Cinema 1970). They show how art has become, in Frank Popper's terms, virtualized.[5
