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 and management of subjects and objects as informational value across global, networked space-time. In particular I will examine how and why these images circulate within an emergent informational mode of production, and the social relations and subjectivities they in turn produce, 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 appearance.
