Digital media opens a whole world of opportunities for doing things as perfectly and complexly as we were never able to do before. We can now rid our work of all the little faults that may happen when doing something by hand. We can do so much more in so much less time. We can access machines that were restricted before to modes of mass production and we can do away with big editions to recoup set-up costs. But this brave new world has its drawbacks as well and creates a range of problems we did not have to cope with before....

[however] when engaging with this new interface between us and the result we also lose some direct influence on the output. We are as a result in danger of physically losing touch with our own work.... through the tools we choose to use.
