This book explores digital artists' articulations of globalization. Digital artworks from around the world are examined in terms of how they both express and simulate globalization's impacts through immersive, participatory and interactive technologies. The author highlights some of the problems with macro and categorical approaches to the study of globalization and presents new ways of seeing the phenomenon as a series of processes and flows that are individually experienced and expressed. Instead of providing a macro analysis of large-scale political and economic processes, the book offers imaginative new ways of knowing and understanding globalization as a series of micro affects. Digital art is explored in terms of how it re-centers articulations of globalization around individual experiences and offers new ways of accessing a complex topic often expressed in general and intangible terms. The Work of Art in a Digital Age: Art, Technology and Globalization is analytic and accessible, with material that is of interest to a range of researchers from different disciplines. Students studying digital art, film, globalization, cultural studies or digital media trends will also find the content fascinating.
This is the story of a Native American Indian girl who falls from a cliff. Afterward, it is the struggles of her family that we experience as we learn how they deal with their daughter's sad and untimely passing and how, in the end, the magic of corn and nature brings them back together. How the story came about? I wrote this story while living in California near an area called "The Back Bay." This is a small patch of land which thankfully thus far, has been left in a natural state. During the colonial American period this area too was the home to many native American Indian Tribes and indigenous peoples. At some point, I began to walk my dog in the back bay. One day, as I was sitting on a rock, I began to see a story unfold in my minds eye. I thought the story touched me and I wrote it here. What was the source of inspiration? Everyone will have a different opinion about it. As for me, in the days that followed, I learned that CORN has many special natural and supernatural qualities for many of the indigenous groups and peoples in the Americas. Overall, the original fairy tale here, is a story of supernatural love. And so, based on this, I believe that it is suitable for adults of all ages to read. It may or may not be suitable for people under the age of 18 depending on parental religious belief systems. As the author, I leave it 100% to your discretion to decide whether this is suitable for your child to read. Also, please note that I am a Latin American woman bu not a native American tribe representative. As such, this story is not meant to be accurate or true to form to any specific native American traditions. Mostly, I am a creative artist and writer and this story is meant to entertain. Thank you.

The woman lying huddled on the couch turned her face to the wall and covered it with her hands in a burst of uncontrollable horror. "Oh, that dreadful light!" she moaned. "If it would only go out! It will send me mad. Oh, if it would only go out-only go out!" Her companion made no immediate answer. She stood by the wall, her shoulders slightly hunched, her hands clasped before her in an attitude of fixed, sullen defiance. What her features expressed it was impossible to tell, since they were hidden by the deep shadow in which she had taken up her position. The rest of the apartment was lit with a grey, ghostly light, the reflection from the courtyard, in part visible through the open doorway, and which lay bathed in all the brilliancy of a full Indian moon.
Heart of a Killer
A CAREER CASE
Jamie Wagner is a young lawyer who is happy to be flying under the radar at a large firm. It's not that he isn't smart. He is. It's just that hard work, not to mention the whole legal thing, isn't exactly his passion. But then he's put on a case that turns his whole world upside down.
Ã¿A FAMILY TORN
Sheryl Harrison is serving a thirty-year murder sentence for killing her husband, who she claims was abusive. The case is settled-there shouldn't be anything for Jamie to do-except now Sheryl's fourteen-year-old daughter, Karen, is sick. She has a congenital heart defect and will die without a transplant. Sheryl is a matching donor-and is willing to die to save her daughter. But suicide, no matter the motive, is illegal. Now Jamie is in way over his head.
A TRIAL BY FIRE
With Sheryl on suicide watch, Jamie's only shot at saving Karen is to reopen the murder case, prove Sheryl's innocence, and get her freed so that she can pursue her own plan. And time is running out.
