Geomediations Collective

Principal Coordinators: Adam Nocek, Laboratory for Critical Technics (ASU), and Patricia Pisters, Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA), University of Amsterdam

The GeoMediations Collective (GMC) brings together a vibrant cast of scholars and practitioners from across North America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia to engage in the varied and complex entanglements of media and geological materials. With the discourse of the “immateriality” of media thankfully fading and it becoming clearer that media have a materiality (geophysical, computational, infrastructural, financial, etc.) that significantly impacts life on Earth, there is an urgent need to situate media and mediation in terms of its earthly materials and practices. The GMC brings together a wide ensemble of voices from across academic and non-academic specialties to engage this urgency in a variety of contexts: academic presentation, artistic experimentation, curated exhibitions, socially engaged design practice, and publication.
