4/9 Virtualities of Movement

Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, April 9, from 2:30-3:30 pm in the Berkeley Center for New Media Commons (340 Moffit). Note the change in our usual time (a meeting with Electronic Arts is taking place beforehand)... Kris was kind enough to let us overlap the New Media Tea.

We'll be discussing Brian Massumi’s latest book, Parables for the Virtual, where he considers virtuality as it relates to movement. Pay particular attention to “The Bleed: Where Body Meets Image” and Massumi’s description of virtual affect in relation to Ronald Reagan’s account of watching himself move on television.

Discussion leader: Ashley Ferro-Murray, Theater, Dance & Performance Studies
