The Agency of Materiality in the definition of digital characters costumes

Activity: Talk or presentation typesConference presentation


In my paper, I will bring to light the ways in which real-world references (namely tangible materials, especially their texture qualities) work as a visual agency and tool in the reproduction of the digital form. I draw ideas from Ingold’s (2017) remarks of the tangible material substance, and Harris’s (2013) thoughts about the creation of digital materials. These both connect to my interviews with costume designers Isis Mussenden, Israel Segal and Danny Flynn, who have worked with computer-animated film productions.
