A Geology of Media –
An Alternative Deep Time
Tuesday 17 March, 5pm to 6.30pm
Robert Webster Building, Room 327
Media materiality is not bound in devices, but extends much further. This talk proposes a perspective where media history is less bound to stories of singular inventors and only human affairs, but to minerals and chemistry, materials and elements. It's a story less about extensions of Man than extensions of the planetary. Through such a speculative perspective one is able to address an alternative politics of the long history of media that is not merely thousands but millions years old – but still relevant to considerations of contemporary climate disaster. Indeed, this talk will contextualise some relevant art projects and contemporary issues concerning, for example, electronic waste – in the proposal of what a geology of media could be.
Jussi Parikka is a writer, media theorist and professor in technological culture & aesthetics at Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton). He is also Docent of Digital Culture Theory at University of Turku, Finland, and Honorary Visiting Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
