In “Media Ecologies”, Matthew Fuller called for an embedded approach to digital materials
as they are encountered in different cultural and social contexts. When media systems
interact with art unpredictable things happen. This remote conversation will test the
materials of digital networks, hosts and remote relays to enable an open discussion of
the materiality of the digital. Fuller and Ballard share a concern with digital matter,
and the employment of things digital in concrete engagements with art. They will discuss
the pervasiveness of digital matter, the engagement of art and the digital, and address
the problem of artists in new media art finding their time taken up with attempts to make
their work interesting to contemporary art, creative industries, humanities, etc., and
forgetting to intensify the work that directly engages the crucial aspects of the field.
This conversation is one attempt to rectify this. Through a direct focus on the
materiality of the digital we will engage a discussion of the materiality of
computational and networked digital media.
