Magic and technology are inextricably linked. Technology enchants us. Even more so in its current digital form. We are under a collective spell, or are we? How do we make sense of the omnipresence of digital technologies? What are the design narratives manifest in our constant interaction with digital devices? Technology is the New Magic is a one-day symposium exploring the relationship between magic and technologies and the digital enchantment that permeates contemporary culture.
