Item Type: Artefact
Creators: Tweed, C
Abstract: Emerging from approaches drawn from media arts research, and grounded in the theory of ‘hyperobjects’ (Morton, 2013) and ‘actor network theory’ (Latour, 1987), ‘Re-writing the Machinic Anthropocene’ considers the complex relations between digitally networked technologies and the earth. It asks three research questions: One, how can the field of media art employ speculative fictional methods to expose and rewrite the relationships between digital technologies and the anthropocene? Two, how can such methods bring into view nonhuman voices and perspectives, making theoretical material more operational? Three, how can a symposium and thematic journal issue be developed that highlights these methods and interrogates similar innovative approaches within media art research? This portfolio contains a 300 word statement, items documenting a research timeline and research questions, initial research activities, the development of a performance lecture, an audio installation and live 'spectrogram', a digital book, a symposium, and a special issue edited by Charlie Tweed of the digital magazine Screenworks.
