New media art describes works of art that have been created using new media technologies. This includes a very long list of diverse, dynamic new media art categories — digital art, computer graphics and animation, virtual art, 3D printing, robotics and internet art (to name just a few), as well as different  artistic practices ranging from conceptual and virtual to performance and installation. New media art sometimes also involves interaction between an artist and observer or between an audience and the artwork.

But, don’t get hung up on the tech or the definition of new media art.  You don’t have to be an art or media expert to appreciate it.  Just enjoy the beauty found in the merging of creative expression and technical innovation.
