Infrastructures of Art and Research
06 - Präsentation
One way to think about concepts and realities of “infrastructure” is as structure that allows structure to exist. As such, it makes us pay attention not just to wires and piping, roads and bridged, but to the organizational, institutional and material scaffoldings which prop up systems of meaning, media and message. This media-materiality is a subject of interest in history of science and engineering, as well as a topic in the politics of contemporary technologies, also the intended focus of public projects in art and research by Jamie Allen. Jamie will discuss his prior work in technology and media based artistic and design practice investigating these themes, as well as current interests in the founding of an institute of artistic research into infrastructures, and some current interests and collaborations he’s hoping to get going around the particular infrastructure of human language as a generative and framing device for creative work in research, art, media and technology.
