Project Title
Complex Subjects

In this project I will be researching complexity sciences and their computational deployments from a media philosophical perspective. I will explore the ways in which cybernetic notions of causality, personhood, and sociality persist in, and are expressed through, algorithmic cultures. Following a philosophy of “critical making,” the project’s formal and methodological qualities will emerge as I embed myself in the tools, methods, and infrastructures of computational complexity.
