Anthropology and Sociology Seminar : Extraplanetary Effect : Humans, Technologies and Environments beyond Earth Other events...
The momentum of technological progress has been steadily reaching outside the planet. Grounded in media infrastructure and practices, our conquest of outer space has been absorbing its inhuman expanses into human mores, entangling them into the circuits of capital, knowledge, ideas and affects and rendering them into a site in which our ‘earthly’ processes of production and consumption, extraction and destruction can propagate and multiply. This paper explores the ways in which the presence and operations of media apparatus beyond the globe forge new relationships between humans, technologies and their environments, reconfiguring the material and social ambits of the arena of life. I consider some of the key trajectories of these ‘extraplanetary’ effects, suggesting that their inflection upon the human media condition tempers the unfolding of our world-making affinities on and off the earth.
