Since summer 2013, a slowly growing team of researchers in Zurich and Europe is steadily develoing the local and transversal framework of Immediations. In Zurich, concerns of immediation are focused on the term “Urban Fabric.” The attempt is to interlace expertise in textile and architecture, urban interaction design, and artistic research enabling us to outline, develop and concretize new practices of research and knowledge production through conceptual work aesthetic experiments. The preliminary goal is laying the ground for the second project phase The Anarchive which will primarily be staged in Europe.

The 'sonozones' project investigates sound art practices in public places through personal and public acts of listening and sounding. The topic is explored using artistic processes developed on site in Mülheim in the Ruhr region of central Germany. Four sound art practitioners collaboratively explore ideas and concepts that question the significance and impact of listening and sounding in public places and suburban and urban spaces. The project collects traces and artefacts of the artistic processes as a basis for investigations into key elements of the individual and social dimensions of sound art. The exploration of forms sets the stage for experiments, interventions, and performative presences carried out on site by the artists. A continuous dialogue and the collection of verbal reflections frames these activities. In addition to texts, this exposition lays out a collection of audio recordings, photographs, and videos in order to document and convey sensory experiences as well as thoughts.
This project explores how scholarly technique is shaped by the technologies used to produce it by documenting the growth and development of a long-term scholarly interest through multiple iterations culminating in a digital artistic installation presented using the Creativity Studios* of North Carolina State University’s James B. Hunt, Jr. Library* as part of the 2014 North Carolina Literary Festival* whose topic was “The Future of Reading.”* The installation was entitled, Projections: Exploring Reading and Writing in Emerging Technologies (or How an Apparatus Becomes Self-Aware). In the essay that follows and in the descriptive work amended via the toolbar above, I reflect on the role of the scholar as producer, creating and expanding the applications of emerging technologies of writing.
