Assembling the butterflies into a swarm

Anthony Head
The numerical grid shows the pattern of how many butterflies would be attached to each of the strings hanging from the abbey ceiling, eventually becoming the shape of the swarm in flight. The grid was created by writing a piece of software that read the colour values of two png files that visually showed the desired formation (side and top view). The greyscale png files were hand drawn on computer.
This grid was used as a...

Re-writing the machinic anthropocene

Charlie Tweed
Emerging from approaches drawn from media arts research, and grounded in the theory of ‘hyperobjects’ (Morton, 2013) and ‘actor network theory’ (Latour, 1987), ‘Re-writing the Machinic Anthropocene’ considers the complex relations between digitally networked technologies and the earth.
It asks three research questions: One, how can the field of media art employ speculative fictional methods to expose and rewrite the relationships between digital technologies and the anthropocene? Two, how can such methods bring into view nonhuman...

Re-writing the machinic anthropocene
