Media-as-things: Mani Mehrvarz, Maryam Muliaee

April 5–20, 2019

Media-as-things is an exhibition and a manifesto about media, memory, and materiality by Mani Mehrvarz and Maryam Muliaee. The concept forms the basis of their current research and practice as PhD candidates in the University at Buffalo’s Department of Media Study.

Presented in this exhibition are recent media artworks that continue a line of thought about the materiality or “thingness” of media objects. For Mehrvarz and Muliaee, the condition of failure becomes a starting point: “Through failure, the object of media becomes a thing…. In encountering with media-as-things, we are affected by the intensities of machines that are suddenly amplified through failure.”
