Tema de Jussi Parikka (University of Southampton) para a Mesa 4: Antropoceno, Pós-Humanismo e Ecologia dos Meios. 6 de agosto, das 9h às 11h30.
This talk focuses on the environmental hazards surrounding the urban; the talk offers a view to the molecular haze that surrounds the overly developed industrial waste lands of megacities. The photochemistry of smog is a residual of the capitalocene as an unevenly distributed chemical reminder of the industrial and post-industrial production. By way of discussing such themes, an alternative sense of the molecular aesthetics of the anthropocene is offered – a theme that discusses the other side of contemporary technological cities; smart cities, residual pollution.
