Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Williams, Richard
Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis will be to explore, through the theoretical lens of Actor Network Theory and Accelerationism, the current nature and problematic elements within Human/Computer interaction, specifically as it relates to Global Capitalism and New Media artmaking. This exploration will include the roles and behaviors of contemporary Users, the nature of Global Capitalism, (as well as its next stage formation, Xenocapitalism, to be described herein) a number of global infrastructures related to the movement of both information and material goods, and the combined effects of these upon contemporary conceptions of space/time. Beyond simply identifying these elements, this exploration will also seek to devise possible strategic interventions within the Human/Computer relationship, again with a special emphasis on New Media artmaking.
