Infrastructure of the Universe

  • Portrait of Zachary Epcar
    In Person

Media are the infrastructure of the universe. Copper conducts electricity. The wind carries seeds. Petri dishes are media for bacterial culture. Anything that conducts the propagation of natural forces or living things can be a medium. This program explores how the interweaving of built, natural, and virtual media environments shapes our world. The rollicking Return to Forms and [ˈdʊŋkl̩ˌdɔɪ̯ʧlant] cast a satirical eye on networked nature, while A Film, Reclaimed and Sky Hopinka’s chronicle of Standing Rock, Dislocation Blues, reenvision resistance for the era of man-made natural disasters.

—Patrick Harrison, Guest Curator
