Co-produced by The Banff Centre for the Arts and the International Council for Computer Communication, Angles of Incidence is a thought provoking documentation of a diverse range of recent artistic explorations in digital multimedia. Spanning 120 minutes and encompassing the work of 20 international artists, the video reflects on current issues in visual art and media practice. Its compilation followed a public call for documentation of "works originally produced for exhibition as virtual reality, multimedia, interactive audio and or video installation, computer network projects, artificial intelligence, robotics and others."

The videotape is accompanied by a 36-page exhibition catalogue that provides background information on the selected artists and their work. It also includes a brief essay by the curator, Sara Diamond, video artist and Executive Director of Media and Visual Arts at The Banff Centre for the Arts. The essay outlines a theoretical context for the pieces. Critical essays by Canadian writers Catherine Richards and Mary Anne Moser examine the changing position and role of the artist in contemporary electronic culture.
