Study in new media is focused on electronic and digital platforms, developed through a broad base of issues and methods aimed at exploring relational and open practices, new forms of electronic poetics and narrative, and reflections on media culture today.
Developments of global culture have radically shifted art production today, along with understandings and usages of electronic media. Operations of the digital fully displace the fixity of original forms, conditioning our material culture as a coded matter readily sampled and networked across a distributed and augmented global territory. Processing and networking of files, information copying, streaming and messaging dominate, as performative activities paralleled by movements of migration, transnational economies, and immaterial labor.
New media practices expose and explore these relationships through experimental forms involving a range of analogue and digital materials and tools. Yet new media is not only a specific artistic or technological field. It is also fully integrated into art practice in general, whether in the form of web-sites and web-presence, documentation techniques and knowledge productions, as well as in the general conditions that enable networking, micro-organizing, and the facilitating of ideas and their circulation. New media is a fundamental cultural and social structure.
Study in new media is focused on electronic and digital platforms, developed through a broad base of issues and methods aimed at exploring relational and open practices, new forms of electronic poetics and narrative, and reflections on media culture today. This includes an understanding of and experimentation with audio and visual editing and manipulation tools, hacking and circuit bending, sensing and real-time work, and with emphasis on interfacing between on- and off-line cultures.
