Description

MARs Materiality (second session) is a project organised by Fine Artist Laura White, with prep sessions lead by PhD students Rowena Harris, Kate Pickering and Laura Burns, with guests Juliette Kristensen and Cheryl Roberts.

The aim of MARs Materiality is to open up new ways of thinking and talking about materiality – materiality as the subject rather than a vehicle for the non-material and theoretical.

Is it possible to talk about materiality in and of itself, without reference to other subject areas? How can we talk about materiality insightfully and intelligently without falling into a dated language of formalism? How does the digital environment affect/influence our material environment, and can we separate the physical from the virtual anymore?
