Technological Interactions

The history of New Mexico is a history of interaction with changing technology. Travelers visiting New Mexico during the nineteenth century marveled at the contrast between the lifeways of the indigenous populations and those of the outsiders. The development of roads, cameras, railways, telegraphs, automobiles, telephones, motorcycles, airplanes, radios and televisions have each had a profound impact on the cultures and economy of New Mexico. Changing technology, and its cultural impact, has been an important subject of local artists for more than a century.
