Schreibman—Digital Artifacts & Liquid Architecture

“Digital artifacts are compound objects whose component parts are acted upon by the system. Some states of the object are invisible to humans but essential to the computer. Meaning typically does not reside in any one component, but is created only through a complex set of interactions (as in the TextArc example), what Marcos Novak calls a 'liquid architecture' or what San Segundo refers to as a 'representation of knowledge': the symbolization of productive and useful electronic information, encompassing syntaxes, semantics, notations, models, formats, and data structures (110).”
