Our inaugural event

The Digital | Visual | Cultural series opens with a keynote talk on 28 June from the New School's Shannon Mattern, followed by an invite-only workshop the next day.  This event will serve as a introduction to the series' guiding themes, theories, and anticipated directions.  The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception at St. John's College, open to all.

The lecture will be live-streamed and a video of the event will appear on this site.

Keynote:

Fifty Eyes on a Scene

This talk replays a single urban scene from the perspective of several sets of machinic and creaturely eyes. By trying on the seeing subjectivities of other lookers, we can examine how various visual organs and tools render the world perceptible and knowable, and how that operationalization plays out a politics of recognition within the visual field.
