DIGITISATION AND MATERIALITY FORUM

Encoded Matter

Laura Mandell

In my comments responding to the excellent questions proposed for this forum, I focu upon how electronic environments for information display encourage us to revise the notion of materiality as unmediated physical experience. I propose that one should think about all physical objects, whether composed of elemental electrons or electrical impulses passed to a display screen, as models for interactive understanding rather than instances of brute reality on the one hand and virtual reality on the other.
