PhD project: On the Matter of Participation
By examining digitized art objects – their mediated materiality and qualities – as a possible locus for audience participation, the main objective of this study is to achieve a better understanding of the participatory potential of digitized art via different modes of digitization and dissemination, both practically and within perspectives of aesthetic theory and philosophy of technology. This goal will be reached by examining what constitutes the concepts and praxis of digitization, dissemination and participation, through theoretical, media aesthetic case studies of online dissemination of selected digitized pieces from the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art (NO), the Astrup Fearnley Museum (NO) and the Art Institute of Chicago (US), as mediated through DigitaltMuseum, the Astrup Fearnley app and Thingiverse, respectively.
