This symposium explores compositions that happen, emerge, or are partly enacted at edges, between surfaces and across materialities, scales and modalities. These kinds of compositions–narrative, artistic, scholarly, political, infrastructural, etc.–demand a reorientation of established knowledge models, critical stances, vocabularies and infrastructures. They shift our attention to their architecture – conceptual and material – and the very process of composition as argumentative, narrative, and strategic media ideations. The symposium aims to develop further understandings of these compositions and partake in the imagining of new practices based on prolonged conversations, a range of concrete examples and thematic interventions.
Among invited and confirmed participants (so far) are: Rita Raley, Ricardo Domínguez, Mark Marino, Anne Balsamo, Zach Horton, Carter Emmart, Johanna Drucker, Erkki Huhtamo and Jeremy Douglass.
