          Abstract

          I wanted to understand the idea of digital materiality and how software cannot be seen, as it has no predetermined visual form. Digital materiality is electrical signals and code, it has no tangible matter, therefore we cannot physically interact with it – therefore it is immaterial (Grombacher 2017). I wanted to render visible the invisible and to understand digital memory/storage as a physical form. It began with the exploration of a USB flashdrive, physically and digitally deconstructing it, to understand the idea of storage and treating memory as an object.
