The Constitution of Worlds

01. June 2015

Deep and long interview to Jussi Parikka on the Geology of Media, speculative theory, the planetary dimensions of contemporary geopolitics... full of valuable references (with a mention to Mineral Vision) .

"Images and sounds educate us and create the worlds in which we live; they can create ethical predispositions, not in the sense of moral guidelines, but to teach us to see in particular ways, with particular leanings. And they can also guide us to think of the thick materialities in which images and sounds anyway are carried: the work of modern media technological storage; transmission and processing which involve earth materialities so that we can see colour; we can hear fine-tuned sounds from vinyls to laser discs; we see through minerals."
