[ISEA2017] Workshop: Jaime Del Val — MetaMediaLab: Ontohacking & Metagaming in the Algoricene

Workshop Statement

Metamedialab is a citizen lab for exploring and elaborating minor perceptions, a laboratory of research into the ways in which media shape societies not so much at the level of content but of their very structures, particularly in terms of how they organise perception. This is what we will call metamedia: the thinking of the very frameworks and perceptual structures mobilised by media. Ontohacking implies a critical reinvention of such structures, which alters the way bodies move, relate and constitute social ecologies.

  • Jaime Del Val (Spain)is meta-media artist, philosopher and activist, director of Reverso and coordinator of the METABODY Project. Jaime del Val develops transdisciplinary projects in the convergence of arts, technologies, critical theory and activism, proposing redefinitions of embodiment, perception and affects that challenge the ontological foundations of contemporary control society.   reverso.org   metabody.eu.
