Re-writing the machinic anthropocene - Screenworks special issue
datasetposted on 08.10.2019 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 Screenworks special issue: Digital Ecologies and the Anthropocene which was co-edited by Charlie Tweed. This special issue emerged from both the findings within the practical and theoretical research as well as the interdisciplinary research that was highlighted at the Digital Ecologies and the Anthropocene symposium. It interrogates a range of innovative practice based approaches that are being used to investigate and rethink the relationships between digital technologies, the earth and the Anthropocene. It also considers how such methods can bring into view nonhuman voices and perspectives, making theoretical material operational.
Charlie Tweed also organised a special launch event with performances, talks and screenings at Cube, Bristol in June 2018 which was funded by MeCCSA.
