Announcing a new reading group focused on writing about media, media art and the surrounding concepts and frameworks of the mediated world. This project is a collaborative group discussion between Cineworks, Western Front and VIVO Media Arts Centre that is open to suggestions and diversions, aiming to build stronger community ties and knowledge in our field. The text to speech notion draws from the successful format of other reading groups (and is particularly indebted to No Reading After the Internet). The event is oriented to participation. We will provide excerpts and facilitate group reading, discussion, and analysis of a text. Prior reading of a given text is encouraged but not required, as all sessions will involve some form of introduction, and some portion of close reading (out loud).
Sadie Plant, Zeros and Ones, Digital Women + the New Technoculture
Wednesday, March 9 @ 7pm
