Being Digital

What should we now expect a digital work to look or sound like? Have digital technologies become so pervasive they are almost invisible? As one of our panelists has observed: 'Macy Gray's album was recorded digitally, but we don't call her a digital artist'. As well the film/video selection panelists for d>art 00 were struck by how 'undigital' the works they previewed looked. Although artists are increasingly taking up digital technologies, there is evidence in their works that they are using these technologies as archeological tools to excavate the ongoing histories of cinema, television, video and sound. dLux invites artists and audiences to consider the digital as metaphor in the evolution of experimental media culture.
