Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper explores the emergence of a new paradigm we call the 'media fabric' - a semi-intelligent organism consisting of a vast and evolving collection of media artefacts, structures and programs that support our engagement in meaningful real- time dialogues, art making, and social interaction. Situated in and around modern communications networks, the media fabric beckons us into an evolving landscape of creative story potential that is synergistic with our imagination, integral to our everyday life, mindful of itself and our intentions, improvisationally shaped, an d pro vides us with interactions and remaindered artefacts that are evocative and self-reflective.
