Current research: My current research follows several intersecting threads: mechanisms of knowledge and value production in the age of “Big Data” and “post-truth”; global capitalism’s (dis)simulation machines; more just and sustainable alternatives to toxic capitalist models and mindsets as well as aesthetic practices that can help us imagine and enact such alternatives. I am a member of the Beyond Verification international team linked to the Digital Democracies Institute at Simon Fraser University.
