Code: Material ohne Eigenschaften
As designers of digital artefacts, we might be closer to the conditions of the author and the writer than we are to designers working with more traditional materials. The material of the author is language. Language is a material nearly without inherent qualities, perhaps similar to information technology in that respect. It is possible to create almost anything with language as a material.
