[ISEA2011] Panel: Sue Gold­ing – Totem, Net­work & Taboo: Col­lat­eral Dam­age no. 39

Panel Statement

Panel: Without Sin: Taboo and Freedom within Digital Media

FILM & LEC­TURE PRE­SEN­TA­TION: At a time when tech­nolo­gies of ex­change promise the new, the un­lim­ited, the wild and free, let us give a small thought to the styl­is­tics of (sex­ual) dif­fer­ence, frac­tal in na­ture, se­quen­tially in­fi­nite and se­duc­tively com­pelling – a kind of ‘be­yond’ the plea­sure-pain/death prin­ci­ples that sug­gest a whole new end-game to morals, ethics, and the sta­tus of being human.

  • Sue Gold­ing (aka johnny de philo) is a crit­i­cal philoso­pher and artist whose in­ter­na­tion­ally rated re­search cov­ers the intra/in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary dis­courses as­so­ci­ated with the con­tem­po­rary media arts, new sci­ences and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies. Set out in terms of in­stal­la­tion, per­for­mance, rolling-doc­u­men­tary, books, ar­ti­cles and apho­ris­tic text, her works ad­dress the var­i­ous as­pects of con­tem­po­rary art prac­tice in terms of their mo­bile multi-me­dia, con­tem­po­rarary philo­soph­i­cal foun­da­tions and meta-math­e­matic (space-time) di­men­sion­al­i­ties.  Pro­fes­sor Gold­ing is Di­rec­tor of the In­sti­tute for the Con­verg­ing Arts & Sci­ences (Greenwich, UK), a post­grad­u­ate/post-doc­toral in­ter­na­tional re­search en­vi­ron­ment.
