Event Details

Media Fossils and the Anthropocene: A Production of an Archaeological Future

 

The talk focuses on the growing amount of future ruins: the media technological waste we are producing as the underbelly of the contemporary fascination for the new. This production is also one of multiple temporalities, drawing on the materiality of the earth and engaging with a future that is radically changed by the presence of the humans. The talk engages with this topic through discussing fossils as well as some examples from contemporary art.

 Dr Jussi Parikka is Professor in Technological Culture & Aesthetics at the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton. He is the author of various books, including Digital Contagions (2007), Insect Media (2010), What is Media Archaeology? (2012) and the forthcoming A Geology of Media (2015). A glimpse of the forthcoming work can be found already in the just published little e-book Anthrobscene (available from University of Minnesota Press in October 2014).

 

*  A free drinks reception will follow Professor Parikka's lecture.
