It’s happened. It’s over. We’re all digital now.
Media production and media education have been transformed by the digital in the last ten years. Back in 1998, Nicholas Negroponte predicted that “digital-ness” would just become part of the wallpaper: “Like air and drinking water, being digital will be noticed only by its absence, not its presence”. But over a decade later, are we “postdigital” yet? This one-day symposium explored how digital technologies have redefined creativity and media practice within the academy both in terms of teaching and research, with a dynamic programme of presentations ranging from a QR Workshop, multiscreen film practice and locative media projects to discussions of creativity and pedagogy in the postdigital age.
A couple of tweets to give a feeling of the texture of the day (follow us @postdigi):
