Surface Folds: The Archival Events of New Medialised Art

Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that the main issue in considering the impact of digital technologies on the parameters of the artistic archive is the actual place of memory in the work of art itself. It stresses the importance of rethinking the notion of technê, especially when the variety of digital media merges into the so-called ‘new skin of fibrous event’, and highlights the significant shift in art from a focus on perspective and projection, to one on experimentation with fold and surface.

Keywords: digital technologies; artistic archive; memory; technê; digital media; fibrous event
