As part of the Southeast College Art Conference, this panel investigates the connection between materiality and digital media in the visual arts. Considering the prevalence of digital technology and the increasing rise in emergent software, the link between visual arts and its material embodiment is shifting in ways that are as unexpected as they are seductive. New media transcends the boundaries of physical embodiment in the evolution from analog to digital video, audio, and photography. Does digital media inhabit its own sense of material representation? What opportunities are being opened up by digitality in film, for instance, and what are the consequences that we should be considering?

Deadline for abstracts is April 20, 2014. Please submit a 200 word proposal to SECAC@c.ringling.edu.

This year the conference is held at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida.  More information about the conference can be found @ http://www.secollegeart.org/conference.
