This interdisciplinary symposium invites leading international and  
Australian figures working with digital light-based technologies to  
consider the capacities and limitations of contemporary digital  
processes. How do contemporary digital media imitate, advance or  
retreat from the achievements of older techniques and devices? Why do  
accidental artefacts of specific media become desirable outcomes in  
others? What role do artists and artisans play in redefining  
technologies through technique? Artists, curators and technologists  
will explore these questions from diverse angles, each exploring the  
techniques and technologies used in depicting, recording and  
projecting digital light.
