Research Interests

My PhD project will attempt to theorize the "algorimage," or the abundant, 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, valorization and realization of subjects and objects as informational value across planetary, networked space-time. In particular, I will examine how and why the algorimage becomes the novel value-form of an informational mode of production emergent within the "long crisis" of capitalism by combining a media archaeolgical excavation of the hardware and software systems that facilitate their functioning with an analysis of their social and historical conditions of possibility and appearance.
