Infrastructures critiques

Jamie Allen - Infrastructures critiques
How do we perceive and think about the infrastructures that condition the ways in which we perceive, think and experience our world? Four essays by Jamie Allen, whose experiments as artist and researcher cross media, disciplines and borders, that invite us to make visible the backstage work of the digitized world, and to think (post)critically about the very notion of critique.
Jamie Allen (born in Windsor, Ontario, lives and works in Basel and Copenhagen) is a Canada-born artist, researcher, designer and teacher, interested in what technologies teach us about who we are as individuals, cultures and societies. He has been an electronics engineer, a polymer chemist and a exhibit maker with the American Museum of Natural History. He lectures, publishes and exhibits projects worldwide. He lives in Europe, works on art and technology projects, and is engaged in institutional reformation and in asserting the importance of generosity, collaboration, friendship, passion and love in practices of making, research and knowledge.
