MAKE.MEDIA.MATTER is an exhibition of media art, following the material turn in media studies and art practice. Presenting works ranging from video and media installations to web and machine learning, the exhibition explores the relationship between human and machine and their respective constitutions as entangled agencies. Thoughtfully, each work, either individually or in relation to the others in the exhibition, challenges the distinctions between the old and new media with a focus on the materiality of media. Through the course of realization of these projects, the participating artists examined the vast potential of media materiality embodied within video glitch, signal transmission, codes, magnetic storage, and information technology.
