Media Archaeology Lab

Dr. Zeffiro's November talk focused on mobile 'artivist' practices, and specifically on the manner in which artists have adopted mobile communication devices as instruments to facilitate political and cultural dissent. Zeffiro used the occasion of her talk at the Brakhage Center for the Media Arts to workshop the idea of ‘locative praxis’. Locative praxis, as she frames it, is a conceptual framework that articulates a politicized dimension of experimental and location-based media production. In her talk, she argues that the dialectic of practice and reflection can further an understanding of the spatial and socio-political dimensions of a space/place, at the intersection of social action and intent.
