Provocations on Media Architecture

Regular price $23.00

How does media architecture distribute suspicion and trust? What is a collage of media architecture? How is media architecture vectored? How can media architecture address privilege? These questions and conceptual provocations aim to challenge the binary of techno-optimism and technological agoraphobia, offering a platform for developing new, critically and contextually rooted theories that media architecture might grab hold of.

Intentionally open-ended, Provocations on Media Architecture brings together 21 thought leaders across architecture, visual arts, design, curation, academia and public policy to address these ideas and themes. Authors respond with images and brief texts incorporating the perspective of their own creative and scholarly practice.

Entries range from descriptions of relevant artworks and design projects to reflections spawned from first-person encounters with media architecture in situ, scholarly analyses and AI-assisted theory. Across the diverse and at times contradictory arguments and methods employed, new constellations and connections emerge.

With contributions from Sofian Audry, Sarah Barns, Susan Blight, Stefano Bloch, Brian W. Brush, John Cayley, Eliza Chandler, Lisa East, The Current Team (Provides Ng, Artem Konevskikh, Eli Joteva, Ya Nzi, and GPT2), Martijn De Waal, Sherry Dobbin, Anthea Foyer, Ekene Ijeoma, Jiabao Li, Melissa Mongiat (Daily tous les jours), Mouna Andraos (Daily tous les jours), Matt Nish-Lapidus, Tiemen Rapati, Scott Rodgers, Ozayr Saloojee, Ana Tobin, Anna Weisling, and Hoa Yang.
