A Geology of Media and a New Materialism. Jussi Parikka in Conversation with Annika Richterich.
Jussi Parikka’s research focuses on interrelations between technological culture, ecology and media aesthetics. He has published widely on media archaeology and material media cultures. In 2015, he published A Geology of Media which explores media studies as study of material (metallic, mineral, chemical) components. Bridging between the natural sciences, arts and environmental ethics, the media theorist explores analytic approaches which show how natural resources enable media and how media impact the earth’s ecosystem. His latest publication highlights the relevance and agency of the nonorganic as element in contemporary art, media studies and humanities. At the same time, it initiates a debate on the geophysical affordances of digital media. The email conversation with Jussi addresses core concepts and approaches suggested in A Geology of Media, and their implications for media studies and the humanities.
