This subject explores theoretical frameworks within which the content, meaning, aesthetics and impact of digital media practice can be critically analysed and evaluated. Topics covered include rhizomic organisation of thought, temporality; interfaces (particularly the interface between the body and technology) and theories of the real, virtuality, materiality and immateriality. Experimental, innovative and conceptually sophisticated practitioners and current critical debates and theories relating to digital media are considered.
