MicroPOM: Transition Regimes – Interventions, Exhibitions, Screenings, Talks and more…

Revisiting Susan Leigh Star’s notion of transition regimes, the symposium re-evaluates the shifts occasioned by widespread new technologies. In 1996 she wrote in the Cultures of Computing, “We don’t yet know, and in some larger sense, may never know, exactly what it is we have gained and lost in the wholesale adoption of information technology and integrated media. Because computers are at once intimate and impersonal, tied up with work, education, and entertainment, they may be so woven into the fabric of our lives that ‘standing back’ is completely an illusion.” Now, more than 25 years later, this notion is still as relevant as ever.

Where are we with these transitions today? And what is the role of Media Art in those transitions?

Media Arts are traditionally understood as either a representation of new information technologies, or a driving motor of new perceptions and experiences. As computing is woven so deeply into the fabric of our lives, its ‘cultures’ become increasingly ubiquitous. Everything in our lives is mediated, including ourselves. In the words of Star, computers are “not trojan horses but trojan doors – unfolding out into worlds embedded in each other without end…”
