Research interests

My work concerns the relations between contemporary digital cultures and processes of sense-making through networked media technologies. I take a specific interest in the aesthetic, experiential, and sensuous dimensions of digital media technologies and ask how they shape proceses of sense-making on an affective and non-or pre-rational level. Beyond critical content analysis, I look at infrastructures, production processes (design), and means of ciruclation and distribution (logistics) to make sense of how the sensuous is being activated.
