Media Ecologies: Tech Nouveau

Started: April 21, 2008, 4:40 p.m.
Ended: April 25, 2008, 4:40 p.m.


FoAM, Nadine and OKNO concluded the .x-med-k. series with a workshop exploring media and media technologies as an ecosystem, deeply networked. At an isolated location in the Champagne region, participants gathered for a week of workshops, reflection and practical sessions around the themes of networks, collaborative projects and Tech-Nouveau. The workshop adopted an “Open Space” approach, in which all participants took an active role in shaping the activities of the group.

FoAM undertook hands-on experiments with simulated biological systems, feeding them with discussions regarding complexity, whole-systems, patterns, permaculture, biomorphism and biomimetics in physical and simulated lifeforms and ecosystems.

“There are other things that need doing, and one of these is the development of an imaginary of technology, an understanding of its poetics and a testing manifestation of those poetics in ways that allow us to think and sense through what that technology is.”
– Matt Fuller in .x-med-a.
