subnetTALK 2018 – “MATERIAL”

Art is more than some decoratively assembled materials. But what do materials have to do with art? Materials are generally anything but obvious. This becomes especially clear when looking at Media Arts and the Maker Movement. Often, we hop from idea, to form, to the search for the right material. However, materials can also bring us to new ideas. New materials are asking to be researched and experimented with, so that we can use them sustainably and purposefully. And since this covers just about the tip of the iceberg, we will dive into Materials in 2018, before the vast spectrum of possibilities engulfs us.
