datasetposted on 21.08.2020 by Charlie Tweed
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
‘Re-writing the Machinic Anthropocene’ asks how speculative fictional methods can be used within the field of media art, to expose the materialities of digital technologies and to bring into view non human 'voices' and perspectives.
This item contains documentation of the performance lecture 'The Signal and the rock' which emerged from the initial mapping process, highlighting the material realities of a single capacitor component from a smart phone. In this way it converted the findings from the map into a performative work that exposes the network of the capacitor's production, operation and disposal and begins to propose alternative network relations using a speculative fiction approach.
