EXCESSIVE RESEARCH

EXCESSIVE RESEARCH relates to the announcement of transmediale 2016, Conversation Piece. It asks: What happens when research is less about exchange and more about excess?

EXCESSIVE RESEARCH relates to the announcement of transmediale 2016, Conversation Piece which highlights the compulsive actions of digital culture, and how we are constantly encouraged to stay active, to make, to share and to secure. Following a research workshop in Liverpool, organised in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University and the Liverpool Biennial, this issue of APRJA delves into the nature of these actions and their limits. It asks: What happens when research is less about exchange and more about excess?
EXCESSIVE RESEARCH was launched in two sessions during transmediale/conversationpiece where through conversations the presenters responded to the compulsive actions of digital culture with an emphasis on the concept of excess.
