All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace: Entangled Vision and the Technoecologies of Sensation

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademic

Abstract

Under contemporary, highly technological conditions, it can be hard to tell where human agency ends and machine logic prevails. Smart infrastructures and thoroughly mediated environments pose a challenge to theorizing emerging technoecologies that generate hybrid, synthetic forms of knowledge on the basis of microtemporal processes detached from the realm of human sense perception. The article problematizes medial modes of ‘making the invisible visible’ as a specific form of sensing and knowledge production. It will be argued that the complex ‘technoecologies of sensation’ vision is entangled in call for an operational onto-epistemology that is suited for comprehending the material-discursive configurations from which mediated visibilities emerge. As part of a larger, malleable ecology, entangled vision, it turns out, resides in-between areas of mediation, materiality, discourse, technology, and human as well as nonhuman sense perception.
