Digital memory and the archive by Wolfgang Ernst( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together essays that present Ernst’s controversial materialist approach to media theory and history.

A geology of media by Jussi Parikka( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Media history is millions, even billions, of years old. That is the premise of this pioneering and provocative book, which argues that to adequately understand contemporary media culture we must set out from material realities that precede media themselves--Earth's history, geological formations, minerals, and energy. And to do so, writes Jussi Parikka, is to confront the profound environmental and social implications of this ubiquitous, but hardly ephemeral, realm of modern life. Exploring the resource depletion and material resourcing required for us to use our devices to live networked lives, Parikka grounds his analysis in Siegfried Zielinski's widely discussed notion of deep time--but takes it back millennia. Not only are rare earth minerals and many other materials needed to make our digital media machines work, he observes, but used and obsolete media technologies return to the earth as residue of digital culture, contributing to growing layers of toxic waste for future archaeologists to ponder. Parikka shows that these materials must be considered alongside the often dangerous and exploitative labor processes that refine them into the devices underlying our seemingly virtual or immaterial practices."--Publisher's website

Media archaeology : approaches, applications, and implications by Erkki Huhtamo( )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces an archaeological approach to the study of media - one that sifts through the evidence to learn how media were written about, used, designed, preserved, and sometimes discarded. Edited by Erkki Huhtamo and Jussi Parikka, with contributions from internationally prominent scholars from Europe, North America, and Japan, the essays help us understand how the media that predate today's interactive, digital forms were in their time contested, adopted and embedded in the everyday. Providing a broad overview of the many historical and theoretical facets of Media Archaeology as an

This cutting-edge text offers an introduction to the emerging field of media archaeology and analyses the innovative theoretical and artistic methodology used to excavate current media through its past. Written with a steampunk attitude, What is Media Archaeology? examines the theoretical challenges of studying digital culture and memory and opens up the sedimented layers of contemporary media culture. The author contextualizes media archaeology in relation to other key media studies debates including software studies, German media theory, imaginary media research, new materialism and digital humanities. What is Media Archaeology? advances an innovative theoretical position while also presenting an engaging and accessible overview for students of media, film and cultural studies. It will be essential reading for anyone interested in the interdisciplinary ties between art, technology and media
Digital contagions : a media archaeology of computer viruses by Jussi Parikka( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Digital Contagions is the first book to offer a comprehensive and critical analysis of the culture and history of the computer virus phenomenon. The book maps the anomalies of network culture from the angles of security concerns, the biopolitics of digital systems, and the aspirations for artificial life in software. The genealogy of network culture is approached from the standpoint of accidents that are endemic to the digital media ecology. Viruses, worms, and other software objects are not, then, seen merely from the perspective of anti-virus research or practical security concerns, but as cultural and historical expressions that traverse a non-linear field from fiction to technical media, from net art to politics of software. Jussi Parikka mobilizes an extensive array of source materials and intertwines them with an inventive new materialist cultural analysis. Digital Contagions draws from the cultural theories of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Friedrick Kittler, and Paul Virilio, among others, and offers novel insights into historical media analysis."--Jacket
The Anthrobscene by Jussi Parikka( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smartphones, laptops, tablets, and e-readers all at one time held the promise of a more environmentally healthy world not dependent on paper and deforestation. The result of our ubiquitous digital lives is, as we see in The Anthrobscene, actually quite the opposite: not ecological health but an environmental wasteland, where media never die. Jussi Parikka critiques corporate and human desires as a geophysical force, analyzing the material side of the earth as essential for the existence of media and introducing the notion of an alternative deep time in which media live on in the layer of toxic waste we will leave behind as our geological legacy.-Back cover

Across & beyond : a transmediale reader on post-digital practices, concepts, and institutions( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of art and theory analyzes today?s post-digital conditions for critical media practices?across and beyond the analog and the digital, the human and the nonhuman. The contributions also look across and beyond the field of media art, staking out new paths for understanding and working in the transversal territories between theory, technology, and art. The concept of the post-digital is a way to critically take account of, contextualize, and shift the coordinates of new technologies as part of contemporary culture. The post-digital condition is not merely a theoretical issue but also a situation that affects conceptual and practice-based work.0The program of the transmediale festival in Berlin, celebrating its thirtieth year in 2017, has reflected these changes, and this book gathers new contributions from leading international theorists and artists of media and art who have taken part in the festival program over its past five editions. Divided into the thematic sections?Imaginaries,??Interventions,? and?Ecologies,? this book is not a document of the festival itself, it is rather a stand-alone exploration of the ongoing themes of transmediale in a book format
A slow, contemporary violence : damaged environments of technological culture by Jussi Parikka( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contemporary moment is comprised of many overlapping speeds, rhythms, and periods of time. A central theme of Jussi Parikka's book concerns slowness instead of acceleration: a different sort of a temporal horizon in order to understand some of the environmental temporalities that media and technological arts are involved in. This is approached through art and design practices that unfold this multiplicity of time, closely entwined with contemporary concerns in aesthetic theory, to understand and engage with the planetary time scales of slow environmental violence. 00The third volume of the Contemporary Condition series continues the investigation into contemporaneity as a defining condition of our historical present

Maria Barnas wrote a poem based on Kriemann?s walk through a tunnel at the industrial site. Lívia Páldi, director of BAC? Baltic Art Center in Visby, Sweden gives an introduction to The Site Residency program and the specifities of selected sites in relationship to Kriemann?s work
P(ech) B(lende) : library for radioactive afterlife by Susanne Kriemann( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Pechblende (Prologue), the artist combines her own auto-radiographs and photograms with archival images drawn from various sources, including aerial and scientific photographs that demonstrate how animal, plant and human life is contaminated by radiation. In Pechblende (Chapter 1), Susanne Kriemann reflects on the artistic possibilities of making the invisible visible. She employs both analog photographic methods and auto-radiography - a technique in which light-sensitive material is directly exposed to radioactive objects. Combining her auto-radiographs with archival material and museum objects, the artist literally illuminates the radiation that is capable of remaining invisible despite the light it emits

Sommes-nous encore maîtres de nos machines d'écriture? Que se joue-t-il derrière la distinction entre le hardware et le software? Dans les deux conférences Le logiciel n'existe pas (1991) et Mode protégé (1993), publiées ici pour la première fois en français, un des pères fondateurs de la théorie des médias allemande Friedrich Kittler (1943-2011) interroge la mainmise de l'industrie du logiciel sur nos usages des ordinateurs et nous invite à une stimulante relecture du matérialisme.00± La bataille aéroterrestre de 1991 l'a montré une fois de plus : parmi les stratégies post-modernes de l'apparence, aucune n'est aussi efficace que celle consistant à simuler l'existence même des logiciels ... »0Friedrich Kittler
