”We live in a culture that shares a common hallucination, namely the understanding of electronic media as something weightless. It is virtual’ as if it is immaterial and spiritual. These ‘magic’, ‘virtual’ bits appear on screen telling us stories. Letting us hear sounds and see images live from other ends of the world, getting us in touch with other humans in a split second […] It is significant to bear in mind that these ‘magic’ bits are very real. It is very material indeed.” Ståle Stenslie.
Through the digitalization, a lot of our everyday work is done through blank and smooth surfaces, rather than differentiated tactile, organic surfaces and textures. But is it correct to assume that our digital world has no form and tactility - That technology is intangible and only occurs through our shiny computer screens?
This project investigates how we shape, materialize and add on surfaces to of our digital, Intangible media, in the creation of a more tactile digitalization - From which we can achieve greater physical proximity and thereby a better understanding of what "side effects" and values that comes with technology.
