  • Lars Bækgaard

The purpose of the paper is to propose and discuss three types of capabilities of digimaterial artifacts like laptop computers, cameras, cars, robots etc. Digimaterial artifacts are material artifacts that combine digital and non-digital elements by bearing one or more digital artifacts. Digital artifacts are linguistic expressions like, say, binary sequences of 0's and 1's. Software and databases are examples of digital artifacts. Paper pieces with digital inscriptions and cars with data and software are examples of digimaterial artifacts. Digimaterial artifacts can bear, and potentially manipulate, digital artifacts. We describe and discuss digimaterial structures and the capabilities that are enabled by these structures. And we describe and discuss the plastic nature of such structures and capabilities. We expect that our work can be used to understand digimaterial capabilities and to analyse and design digimaterial structures that possess a relevant set of capabilities.
