Motion and Representation: the Language of Human Movement, book launch, London!

Matthew Fuller will host Nicolas Salazar Sutil, as part of the UK launch of the book Motion and Representation: the Language of Human Movement at Deptford Town Hall.

Their conversation will revolve around the book's main themes, i.e. the challenging relationship between movement performance and systems of formal representation (mathematical, computational, movement notational), as well as the emerging technologies and industries these systems afford. They will debate critical issues provoked by contemporary forms of motion representation, and the kind of creative interventions that help us to better understand how human movement has been both rationalised and complexified through digital languages, and how we may begin to re-think our culture of technologized movement.

The discussion will be followed by Q&A, and complementary drinks.

 

Nicolas Salazar Sutil is Academic Fellow in Digital Performance at the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, University of Leeds. He is the co-editor, with Sita Popat, of the book Digital Movement: Essays in Motion Technology and Performance (Palgrave), and artistic director of C8 Project (www.salazarsutil.net).

 

Matthew Fuller is Professor of Cultural Studies at the Digital Culture Unit, Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths, University of London. He is the author of Media Ecologies: Materialist Energies in Art and Technoculture (MIT Press), Software Studies (MIT Press),  and, with Andrew Goffey, of Evil Media (MIT Press) as well as Behind the Blip: Essays on the Culture of Software and other books. 

 

This event is organised by Digital Culture Unit, Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths College
