Abstract/Artist's Statement

The principal contention of the present disquisition is that electronic commodities such as the Internet, laptop computers, cell phones and other widely available instruments of mass communication created a social phenomenon that is known as the “new media;” the label “new media” has emerged as an umbrella term that encompasses all non-traditional modes of delivering information, this paper will specifically address its potentials and liabilities with the political electoral and democratic process with special attention to notions of the ‘Electronic Democracy.’
