In the second session of the day, writer Chardine Taylor-Stone looks at afrofuturist narratives of technology and science fiction culture, and where it is placed in black political resistance, liberation and activism. Where are the missing narratives of magic surfacing, and why is there a need more than ever for them to exist?
A mini-conference inside FutureEverything 2015, hosted and guest curated by artist and designer Tobias Revell, and FutureEverything’s Natalie Kane, Haunted Machines reflected on the narratives of magic and hauntings pervading our relationship with technology and began to analyse why these narratives exist, what they mean and what they do.
