THE IN/VISIBLE CITY: ReSITE 2017 conference unveils the infrastructural heart of urbanism

“But while the focus on infrastructure was a useful device for initiating these kinds of discussions, a danger of the approach is the predominance of an “above/below the bonnet” dichotomy; cities are not cars, nor are they computers. The speakers partaking at reSITE 2017 offered perspectives along a wide spectrum of architecture and urbanism.”

EVERYTHING NOT SAVED WILL BE LOST: on digital archival project All Sources Are Broken

“Thinking of ASAB’s interest in obsolescence alongside the thematic frame of “ever elusive” brings to mind the manner in which Espen Aarseth, Principle Researcher at the Center for Computer Games Research at the IT University of Copenhagen, has spoken about hypertext, noting that its main feature “is discontinuity—the sudden displacement of the user’s position in the text.”

STRATEGIES AGAINST ARCHITECTURE: What might anti-architecture mean in the post-industrial, digitised landscapes of 2017?

“Arguably, the ‘souls of our societies’ are drifting into the cloud, routed in physicality via the dispersed architecture of a thousand non-distinct (and often unmapped) server farms. What could ‘collapsing architecture’ in order to platz schaffen (make space) mean for artists working at the intersection of music and architecture today?”
