Panel 1: Medium with Maeve Connolly (writer, lecturer in the Faculty of Film, Art and Creative Technologies at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dublin), Katrina Sluis (artist, writer, curator Digital Programmes Photographers' Gallery London), Ben Vickers (curator of Digital Serpentine Galleries, London) Moderated by Toke Lykkeberg (curator, Copenhagen)
The Lunch Bytes Conference marks the conclusion of the Lunch Bytes discussion series that took place throughout 2014 in seven cities across northwestern Europe. These panel discussions focused on the increasing significance of digital technologies with respect to art.
The first panel focuses on the concept of the medium. Digital techniques and tools have transformed traditional disciplines and blurred their external boundaries, while new and emerging forms of artistic production reflect the increasing ubiquity of the digital. This panel invites a discussion of the medium as an analytical entity, revisiting the concept of medium specificity. Does it still make sense to think in formal, media-related categories or have we moved beyond the medium as a recognisable and classifiable entity in the age of pervasive computing?
