Assembly Codes: The Logistics of Media

Assembly Codes examines how media and logistics set the conditions for the circulation of information and culture, documenting how logisticsβ€”the techniques of organizing and coordinating the movement of materials, bodies, and informationβ€”has substantially impacted the production, distribution, and consumption of media. At the same time, physical media, such as paperwork, along with media technologies ranging from phone systems to software are central to the operations of logistics. In charting the specific points of contact, dependence, and friction between media and logistics, Assembly Codes demonstrates that media and logistics cannot be understood apart from each other.
