TECHNOLOGIES AND IMPROVISATION: Tools and Theories for Uncertain Futures

 

Between 7-9 of February 2018 I  took part in the “Technologies and Improvisation:
Tools and Theories for Uncertain Futures”
Nordic Summer University Ad Hoc Symposium, at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. 

The aim of the symposium was to bring together theorists, designers and technologists. We discussed practices of making and the social and cultural impact of future technologies. The addressed questions were: How can philosophical questions support the development of technologies? How in turn can technological practices and development inform philosophical and sociological theories? And how can both making and theorizing help us imagining future technologies and their impact on societies? Guided by these questions we want to develop a philosophy for makers and a better practice for philosophy.

My presentation was about ” Bricolage, Reversed Engineering and technical Re-Enactement as Strategies for Artistic Interventions”.
