On Thursday 8th June, 11am-5pm in the Galvanising Shop Performance Space at Historic Dockyard Chatham, Jaime del Val, one of the most significant artists/ philosophers in Europe working at the transdisciplinary frontiers of body, subjectivity and the algorecene will present METABODY 2017 Kent – Ontohacking Workshop: Ontopolitics of perception in the Algoricene: Ecologies of indeterminacy in the Big Data Era.
Hosted by the School of Music and Fine Art, this workshop offers participants a unique opportunity to explore some of the key questions driving current trans-disciplinary and practice based research through active participation with a leader in the field. This would enable artists and researchers alike to develop and test their research methods, and gain valuable insight into trans-disciplinary and practice based research processes and collaborative practice based investigation, thus opening up the potential of futurity, navigation and speculation within practice as research.
Jaime is the founder of http://metabody.eu/ – a major European research project that questions the homogenisation of expressions induced by current information and control technologies.
