In this Special Interest Group (SIG) we want to intersect different practices and discourses as heterogeneous but complementary articulations of ‘space’, that address, operate on and contribute, in different ways and capacities, to the transformation of the contemporary environment and its challenges: the social, the infrastructural, the technological, the sensory, the virtual, the built and the unbuilt.
The IDEA was and is to found a group of media theorists, composers, media artists, performers, linguists, architects (...) for the interdisciplinary delineation of the field. Therefore, the group started in January 2020 with multidisciplinary research on the social impact of space(s) in our society to be able to define certain strategies dealing with the multi-layered meanings of space in the mediatised every day and the arts.
For example, every member provided a bibliography, mirroring the most important media productions, tools, literature, performances (etc.) in his or her respective field.
This network of links and references shall be open to the SAR community as well as are the topics and the joint projects of the group on this RC page.
We are happy to invite everyone who wants to do research work contributing actively with their practices, knowledge, interests, concepts and desires in the broad field of spatial aesthetics and artificial environments to join us in the upcoming calls.
