Data Loam (Sometimes Hard, Usually Soft): The Future of Knowledge Systems – only a trio like Johnny Golding, Martin Reinhart, Mattia Paganelli could possibly come up with such a poignant but playful book title. I am putting finishing touches to my contribution to this publication (expected to be published this November by De Gruyter), which “will be a landmark publication in the digital humanities broadly speaking. It emphasises the role of contemporary art and practice-led research as the primary mover in re-thinking artificial intelligence, digital environments, software systems, and with it, new knowledge systems. The impact will include the library information sciences, computing software, crypto-economics, gaming. It re-thinks the role of curatorial practice(s), archiving, and ethics. It is playful, hard-hitting, and hopefully, will enable new systems of pedagogy and radical forms of political practice. ” Very excited and proud to be part!
