Research Interests

My PhD project will attempt to theorize the "algorimage," or, the algorithmically circulating digital images we interface with on social media platforms. The primary thesis is that the "algorimage" is the dominant image today and should be understood as form of logistics—a particular technology and technics aimed at the movement and realization of subjects and objects as informational value across planetary, networked space-time. By combining a media archaeolgical excavation with a Marxist materialism, I will examine the technical and social infrastructures serving as the algorimage's conditions of possibility. Moreover, I am interested in the algorimage as a form of appearance emergent within the disjunction of the "long crisis" of capitalism—characterized by declining profitability and a shift toward the sphere of circulation since the 1970s—and the rise of a political economy based around the accumulation of information.
