Post-Anthropocene Fashion

February 28, 2019 Leave a comment

“…fashion cycles now follow the rate of Moore’s Law … ” — Liam Young on the Hyperface project (Hyphen Lab + Adam Harvey). This article features in the Machine Landscapes publication; I am thinking about this in the context of our Archaeologies of Fashion Film project which while being mostly focused on early cinema, has an angle to questions of post-cinema of fashion too. Hence, one cannot avoid how the question of movement of images has shifted to include aspects of data and not merely how the image is something we watch, but something that watches back, reverses the assumed order of address; hence, also, textiles as digital surfaces feature into this lineage as part of an alternative “archaeology” of cinema as part of apparatuses of surveillance and military, of targeting and camouflage.

De insectos, máquinas y posverdades

December 1, 2018 Leave a comment

The new issue of the Luthor journal (published by colleagues in Argentine) is out and with a focus on media archaeology. The issue also includes an interview with me (“De insectos, máquinas y posverdades“) for those interested. We discuss media archaeology and transdisciplinarity, materiality, questions of geography as well as some brief points about literature in relation to the field. I also mention some current and emerging projects, from fashion film to operational images.

Edit: now the original English version of the interview (not copyedited) is also available (PDF): download here.
