In The Language of New Media, Lev Manovich proposes five “principles of new media”—to be understood “not as absolute laws but rather as general tendencies of a culture undergoing computerization.” The five principles are numerical representation, modularity, automation, variability, and transcoding.

Playing Manovich is a collection of interactive art pieces that allow the user to experience each principle. This hopes to inspire an interest in media theory in others.
