How can DIY technologies, from air quality sensors to homemade hydrophones, tune us in to planetary politics?
Bringing together practices of citizen participation, environmental politics and computation, this symposium explores how new technologies can both enhance and unsettle our relationship to the earth.
Panel topics include ‘Tuning Earths,’ ‘Conjuring Cosmopolitics’ and ‘Punking Participation.’ Including contributions from Didier Debaise, Adrian Mackenzie, Beth Coleman, Alex Murray-Leslie, Maria Puig de la Bellacasa, Doina Petrescu, and Zooetics, among others.
In collaboration with Citizen Sense, Goldsmiths, University of London, and supported by the European Research Council.
Citizen Sense is a project led by Jennifer Gabrys that investigates the relationship between technologies and practices of environmental sensing and citizen engagement. Working through participatory and practice-based community research, the Citizen Sense project has monitored air pollution from the gas fields of northeastern Pennsylvania to the congested streets of Southeast London.
