MediaObject is a book series that is focused on publications from researchers and artists exploring and documenting practice based projects not based primarily in text. Each book in the series may contain multimodal content in the form of images, video, audio, network media, software applications or other media.
The editors recognise the long creative history of the hybrid poetic essay as a research modality in the arts and the relation it has to the literary essay as a sustained discursive meditation on a series of interlinked ideas. This sits alongside a recognition of the role of experimentation with the languages of media in the development of new modes of communication and new ideas. Necessarily then MediaObject is interested in experiments in form both in book publishing and in an expanded idea of the possibilities of both the academic monograph and the artist book.
