Material can be symbolic and coded. Our experience of a medium’s temporality becomes apparent only through our knowledge of its material behaviour. As the world becomes ever more digital and physically removed, we rely on countless materials to facilitate the remote accessibility of images. And yet, our fascination with “real” stuff increases. The texts in this volume reflect a great diversity of practices and materials, but also the diversity of meanings suggested by its title. In addressing the raw materials of our surroundings, as well as the technical equipment, tools, and infrastructures they involve, we gain deeper insight into material’s significance.
