More about us

This website is dedicated to fostering new directions in studying infrastructure. We want to "furnish" our seemingly ephemeral clouds of data and information with ideas, designs, sentiments, emotions, and encounters. Emerging out of a conversation between many disciplines and practices--history of science, media studies, design practice, architecture--this project brings them together to rethink the politics and aesthetics of media infrastructures. To do so, our major ambition was to create a new vocabulary of concepts and practices that might challenge and queer standard notions of what an infrastructure is. Our project is ambitious and speculative. It is in process. Please continue to check us out for ongoing conversations, new materials, and provocations. Our bios and more coming soon!!!!
