MEDIA203

Digital Arts and Cultures

The paper examines how traditional analogue media are being supplemented by digital media and the impact it is having on creative and artistic practices. Digital media is best understood as a complex process that involves the transformation of existing cultural forms and skills leading to more hybrid media forms and interdisciplinary practices. Such changes have not only altered the experience (or phenomenology) of practice but also changed the status and role of the body as a media tool. This paper offers students the opportunity to explore theoretical concepts and critical perspectives relevant to persistent change in media practice from historical, trans-cultural, and aesthetic perspectives.
