Medium and Message; Taking Digital Art Out of Context.


This research project is an investigation into contemporary book design and intends to explore how digital art can be documented in a printed artefact. The practice-based research project is an exploration into how form, meaning and context can be used as a way to disrupt and subvert traditional methods of book design. It also explores ways in which designers can allow the reader to interpret a new level of understanding through the experiments in materiality and altering the codex architecture. The project seeks ways to make equivalences between, and translate the concept of ‘digital materiality’ into something that can be contextualised as a tangible object.
