Cultures of the Anthropocene
In this discussion of artistic research practices, Neal White will first address his ongoing fascination with large scale sensing networks. Examining existing and new sensor networks, White examines what Ryan Bishop has referred to as a 'long cold war’ in which sensing seismic activity and molecular detection are leading cultural practitioners into a re-imagining a collective experience of global scale scientific and military systems. Driven in part by ongoing research into deep time and the concept of contingency, the discussion examines the critical importance of the ‘anthropocene’ in framing new cultural practices.
