A History of New explored what happens when a new technology is co-opted and subverted into a tool, supporting system, or display medium for artists.

In the timeline of "creating," Virtual Reality technology is relatively new.  University students and museum visitors were invited to help build a graphically-rich timeline of technological and scientific innovations and the resulting reactions and responses to these innovations. The timeline was displayed on the wall of the CANVAS Gallery and within the CANVAS itself. Visitors were able to add to the timeline online.
