Matters of the Image introduces a new framework for thinking about digital images. By introducing techniques from printed electronics, synthetic biology, and digital fabrication Orkan Telhan moves beyond the boundary of "pixels" to the material nature of images. This book demonstrates ways to design, grow, and fabricate visual artifacts that not only provide information but also function as interactive interfaces, diagnostic labs, or living factories.
