Differences Electronic


“Cultural difference, definitions of nationalism and race matters are inextricably bound up with the way we engage with contemporary visual culture and ‘cyberculture’ - the contemporary cultural experience linked to notions of cyberspace as an electronic networked environment. Increased digitalisation and enhanced electronic communication is affecting almost every definition of our cultural selves – from the public sphere of collective, social activism and citizenry through to the notion and defining of the private, individual self. Using my own work as illustration, the presentation will explore three areas that contribute to some of the debates surrounding the digital experience and definitions of race. It will explore our relationship to the colonial documentation of the past and how this is reformulated into a contemporary electronic context, and explore notions of individual and collective definitions of migration, identity and trans-nationalism as applied to a digital and networked environment. And to raise specific aspects of electronic media and enhanced notions of visuality that have an impact on our experience and understanding of notions of difference and issues of race.”
