From New-Media-Curating list:
>> March 2011 Theme of the Month: Analogue/Digital Art
>> At the Crafts Council's Curator's Forum in September 2010, the relationship between
digital processes and material craft objects was called into question, by artist who
comfortably use both. What are the histories of such hybridity? Are craft and design
curators ahead of art in integrating new media into mainstream exhibition? Is neo-luddism
the way forward?
>> These issues, however, go beyond craft and into art: Much activist and participative
art, for example, might use new media connectivity extensively, but rarely exists without
street-level production, exhibition or action. Are Open Source production methods really
adapted outside of software? Are the analogue and the digital really integrated in practice,
or do tensions still exist?
