19.–21.06.2024, 11h–13h,14h–17h

The seminar confronts materials that have always been around but which accrue new significances. These are materials bound into new technological environments – ones shaped by and in relation to cloud computing, touchscreens, CGI animation, Networks of Things, sub-perceptual visualising systems. Between these matters and these technologies is the human, but that is a fantasy – the human is shot through – made of and with – these matters and these technologies. In the context of the matter, from which emanates ideological and poetic significance, and the technologies, which are also idealist constructions, it is possible to produce an environment in which political aesthetics can seize the stage in the interests of critical analysis, unlike the hostile that seeps across the world, a toxically political atmosphere. The sessions range across substances or matter and their uses, histories, representations, in order to produce an understanding of the digitally saturated presence. The substances are fog, froth, foam, liquid crystal, touchscreen glass, and we may consider the history and genealogy of the device.

Esther Leslie
