Panel: Variable Reality – Inter-formalities in Digital/Analogue Arts
This paper will introduce the panel theme. In it I will also discuss how tangible translations change our relationship to screen-based information. Through a set of examples I will also discuss how by encoding digital information into a physical object we can establish a different way of reading data through spatial, temporal and material variations that sit outside of the computer-monitor and the digital environment.
