CFP-Stocks, Screens, and Servers: The Materiality of Media (The Velvet Light Trap #70)

The Velvet Light Trap

As culture becomes increasingly digitized— from downloading and streaming videos and music to digital film production and cloud computing— arguments for the "dematerialization" of media are becoming commonplace. However, media have always been, and remain, embedded in and structured by material objects, networks, and practices that delimit their uses and meanings. Any cultural artifact bears traces and consequences of the material conditions of its production, distribution, and reception, whether the size and weight of the camera that shot a film's images, the geography of the shipping or cable network through which a program was transported or transmitted, or the spaces occupied by physical record or DVD collections.

Covering & Exposing: Manipulation & Fragmentation of the Body

University of the Creative Arts

First Inaugural Post-Graduate Conference
Centre for Fashion, Design & Promotion, University of the Creative Arts
June 23rd, 2011
University for the Creative Arts, Epsom, Surrey, UK

The body and the nude have been at the centre point of history, humanities and arts for centuries. Manipulations of the human form are a reoccurring focus through natural and unnatural causes. Such ideas include natural deteoriating of the body through aging and illness, against the recent sociological media frenzy of cosmetic surgery and decoration of the skin.
