Digital culture is created and experienced through the use of digital technology. The many branches of digital culture range from electronic art to smart fabrics, from content development and digitization to scientific research and cultural production. New media is an umbrella term used to describe evolving forms of computer-based media. Because these forms change frequently, they may also be characterized as unstable media.
Circuit4 was established by Nina Czegledy, Mark Beam and Nichola Feldman-Kiss with support from the Virtual Museum of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts. The project was suspended in 2005 and in 2007 was transferred to the CCCA. Nina Czegledy continues to direct the circuit4 project.

Connection to the broadband optical network CA*net 4 is very costly and complex. Artist organizations do not have institutional infrastructure support to negotiate this new territory. Implementation and network membership dues are in some cases upwards of 30% of the arts organization operating budgets. Additionally, the programs for connecting to CA*net 4 are not designed in consideration of independent art research methodologies.
