Bending the Future: The Alternate Present of Media Archaeology as an Art Methodology

Media archaeology has been known for its innovative work in excavating repressed, forgotten, or past media technologies in order to understand the contemporary technological audiovisual culture in alternative ways. Failed technologies of the past can either serve as warning signs of what to stay away from or give us inspiration on what to do – and both can help us bend the future of technology into a more interesting, fair, and equitable form. This talk will explore how topics like gender have been highlighted by artists working with technology, and how historical technologies can serve as inspiration for re-imagining technology through different lenses of feminism.
