“Negentropic Fields” book is OUT! Condensing the joint curatorial effort of INTER-MISSION and formAxioms, and designed by Currency, the book (500+ pages) reveals the making of the platform and the curation of the archives that led to the conceptualisation of the immersive environments.
It is filled with textual contributions that gravitate around media-philosophy and art… post-post-contemporary curatorial practices, artist collectives, platforms, negentropy, multiplicity, cognitive dissonance, desire, xeon-rationalism, xeno-poetics, algorithmic templexity, digital/data-driven art, transformation of temporality in the digital, the phenomenon in virtual reality, performance in new media, agency and subjectivity in the digital, psychopathologies of the digital, the virtual and ideology. The book is a prototype of curated knowledge attempting at formalizing alternative modes of existence, resistance, heresy, attitudes towards hybrid (digital and physical) times and space, poetic stances that look and that attempt to alter the actual parameters of what is called the “world”.
