Back to is a non-profit educational website highlighting the historic individuals who defined new media by the creation and exploration of innovative concepts, philosophies, projects, and processes.

This project aims to present new media innovation in the context of cross-disciplinary connections, collaborations, conceptual characteristics, medium/genre and timeline. The goal is to educate and engage the new media community, by providing a relational viewpoint of historical works and the opportunity to share contemporary projects within a referential context. 1.0 is just the beginning and needs YOU, the community, to provide feedback and contemporary projects.

If your work has been directly inspired by one of these media legends, submit a link to your project online at

The database of historic projects listed currently on represents only the beginning, and phase two is already underway. If you have any suggestions for additions to the historic database, use the feedback form under the about section.
