[ecrea] Screenworks Volume 8.2: Digital Ecologies and the Anthropocene

Thu Jun 21 19:17:48 GMT 2018

We are pleased to publish six new practice-research works for this special issue of Screenworks focused on relationships between digital ecologies and the Anthropocene.

Spanning diverse geographic regions, this special issue presents creative investigations dealing with the stark and urgent reality of a lasting impact on the planet caused by human activity and particularly digital technologies. Across these contributions, it is specifically the poetic or non-linear nature of experimental moving image work that allows an exploration of notions such as “hyper-objectivity” – to engage, both aesthetically and politically, with the imagining of objects that defy imagination.

The issue is now available online at:

/Points of Presence, /Adam Fish (18’ 46”, experimental documentary)
/Day and Night with Malla, A/nnette Arlander (30’ 20”, video and performance artwork) /Y Gors/The Bog, /Anne Marie Carty, Nick Jones and Dafydd Sills-Jones (17’ 45”, experimental documentary)
/Googling the Anthropocene, /Garfield Benjamin (interactive online video)
/Wrecked on the Intertidal Zone/, Alistar Oldham (online gallery/documentary)
/The Trembling Giant,/ Patrick Tarrant (19’ 34”, experimental documentary)

This issue is a collaboration between guest editors Charlie Tweed (Bath Spa University), Joshua McNamara (University of Melbourne) and associate editor Alex Nevill (San Francisco State University). Supported by the Digital Cultures Research Centre at the University of the West of England, Bristol and the Centre for Media Research at Bath Spa University. This issue also coincided with our inaugural Screenworks event, a showcase screening at the Cube Microplex cinema in Bristol on 20th June 2018 that was generously funded by the MeCCSA Practice Network.
