research practice


Instructions: BRING YOUR DATA



research practice is a contribution to the symposium these will attend you may which will take place in Falmouth and surrounding area on 21 and 22 June 2012. The practice is prepared by Magda Tyżlik-Carver and will be developed together with those who will join it on the 22 June.

research practice is dedicated to the critical experience of research and knowledge production. Situated within the conditions which can be characterised by terms such as cognitive capitalism, data mining, post humanities, affective labour, we will concentrate on experiencing how production of data is a deeply affective activity engaging our knowledge, skills, emotions, subjectivities and bodies. The affective data is produced as a result of forms of social reproduction flowering within and between servers and search engines, facebook profile pages and 140 symbols-long tweets.


Let us start then with consideration of this wiki page as a captor or a vessel through which affective data is channelled. Let us trace the data, or some of it at least, perhaps not from the beginning but from the moment when you received the invitation to participate in these will attend you may. Let us move on and imagine ourselves at the Potager greenhouse near Constantine in Cornwall on the 22nd June. There will be table tennis, ice-cream, ice lollies and research practice. There might be an internet connection, so it is possible that your laptop will be needed.

The question is: WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH OUR DATA?
