Media and Representation in the Design Academy: The decline of technological
determinism and the ascendancy of the post-digital has ushered a renewed
interest in the role of representation in current design discourse. Our era of
flattened-hierarchies has instigated a transfer of value whose orientation is
in favor of image making and by extension, ‘representation’. Dissociated from
its role as a precursor to the real, the image now stages the emergence of
multiple material realities that are at once factual and fictive.
