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.
