XR Lunch: Shifting Cosmologies (Free Online Event)

Discursive conversation about XR technologies and their place in our default anthropocentric world.

13:00 to 14:30

Shifting Cosmologies: More Than Human XR is a series of presentations and interviews that instigates a discursive conversation about XR technologies and their place in our default anthropocentric world. We consider how XR technology may be used as a theoretical framework and navigational toolkit to reimagine our shifting cosmologies from an anthropocentric reality to one encompassing ecocentrism realities beyond the human experience. We see this as a first step in generating sustained conversations about non-human-centric XR and the intersection with the areas of philosophy, critical theory, and creative practice in collaboration with the humanities, sciences, and technology in the future.

Klaas Kuitenbrouwer is researcher at Het Nieuwe instituut in Rotterdam. After studying history and developing an art practice, he worked at the intersections of culture, technology and ecology since the late 1990ies. At Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, he is currently developing the zoöp project, a legal format for collaboration between humans and collective bodies of nonhumans. He has been teaching media and other theory at the Rietveld Academy since 2002. A consistent element in his work is the intersection of different knowledge practices: technological, artistic, legal, scientific, and nonhuman.
